Tulsa women’s team trails field in American Championship

Palm Coast, Fla. – Two years into the career of coach Emilie Klein-Gille, the rebuilding of the once-proud University of Tulsa women’s golf program is very much an ongoing project.

 Tulsa not only finished last in the 2016 American Women’s Golf Championship Tuesday, it trailed eighth-place Cincinnati by 29 strokes and finished 80 shots behind winner Houston.

The Hurricane carded a final round total of 329 to finish the 54-hole tournament with a score of 974 at the par-72 Ocean Course. Tulsa junior Nadia Majidizadeh, from Tulsa Union High School, finished in 24th place with a 237 total after today’s score of 78. Seniors Antonia Von Wnuck and Alex Haun placed 34th and 39th, respectively. Von Wnuck finished with a score of 242, while Haun totaled 246. Freshman Olivia Jackson placed 41st with a total score of 253, and sophomore Nicole Marquardt finished in 42nd place with a 254 score.

Tulsa players posted four scores of 15 in the 70s, led by Majidizadeh’s second-round 73. All other scores were 82 or above.

No. 28 Houston claimed the team title by 10 strokes over second-place East Carolina. The Cougars carded a final round 290 and finished with a total score of 894. East Carolina’s Frida Gustafsson Spang won individual medalist honors with a 1-under 215 after turning in a 67 today.
