Hurricane women in 11th place after round one
BRYAN, Texas – The Tulsa women’s golf team sit in 11th place after the first round of fall competition at the Texas A&M "Mo"Morial tournament, held at the par-72 Traditions Club.
The Golden Hurricane had their four returning letterwinners take to the 6,206 yard course along with one junior college transfer – Chanya Angwarawong. Through the first round, TU has carded a total of 315.
The Auburn Tigers are currently leading the field after totaling a 291 through the first round of competition on Monday, ending just three strokes over par. They are followed closely behind by Tulsa conference-mate Houston at 295 (+7) and Florida State at 296 (+8).
Rounding out the top-five teams in the round, Kentucky shot for a 298 total (+10) and UTSA a 299 (+11), definitely still within range to push for a better finishing rank over the next two days.
Tulsa sophomore Nadia Majidizadeh had the top performance of the day for the Hurricane, carding a 76. Starting on the back-nine Monday morning, Majidizadeh birdied the par-4 hole 12 after staying even on 10 and 11. She went on to bogey 13 and 16, managing to stay one-over-par until her last hole of the day, when she triple-bogeyed the 345-yard ninth hole to return to the clubhouse at +4 and tied for 26th place.
Antonia Von Wnuck, a two-time letterwinner for TU, finished the day at 78 with birdies on holes 15, 17 and 8. A quadruple-bogey on the par-4 12th hole, hurt Von Wnuck’s chances for a near even-par round. At six-over par, she finished the first round of competition tied for 43rd.
Close behind Von Wnuck was Chandler, Ariz. native Alex Haun at 79 on the day. The senior finished her round strong with a birdie on the 8th hole after struggling earlier in the round. She goes into the second round of play on Tuesday tied in 47th place.
Franziska Voellinger and Angwarawong finished at 82 and 86 respectively. Voellinger carded a birdie on the 147-yard hole 7, while Angwarawong counted her only birdie on 18.
Kayla Jones out of Florida State is currently atop the leader board at 69 (-3), with three players tied at second — Alex Harrell (Auburn), Haley Mills (Kentucky) and Lana Hodge (ULM) — just two strokes behind her.
The second round of play will tee-off beginning at 8:00 am Tuesday morning.
