WAIKOLOA, Hawaii – After 18 holes at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic, the Oklahoma State women’s golf team is in position to win its seventh event in the Aloha State.
Thanks to Michelle Forsland, Han-Hsuan Yu and Lianna Bailey, the Cowgirls lead second-place Arkansas State by seven strokes after carding a 13-over 301 at the Waikoloa Kings’ Course.
Forsland is in second place after posting a 1-over 73, which is the junior’s best round of the spring so far. She posted a pair of birdies and an eagle on No. 15 to enter the second round just a stroke behind Utah Valley’s Kaylee Shimizu.
Yu and Bailey are both just a stroke behind Forsland for the individual lead, while freshman Sara Camarena carded a 3-over 75 to sit in a tie for sixth place after 18 holes.
Stephanie Astrup is also in a tie for 10th place at 5-over 77, while senior Chih-Min Chen fired a 7-over 79 to sit in a tie for 16th.
Faith Hopkins and Emma Whitaker are at 12-over and 13-over, respectively, and in a tie for 35th and 40th place.
While this is OSU’s first time competing in the Anuenue, the Cowgirls have won six tournaments in Hawaii – all since 1998 – with the most recent coming at the 2015 and 2016 Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational.
