We opened the Spring season placing 5th at Stanford with a total score of 596. The weather has treated us really well and we had a great time playing at Stanford, as always! The course was in great shape, the greens were fast, and we faced challenging hole locations during both of the rounds.
None of the hole locations were quite as easy as this one:
Plenty of positive things happened again at this tournament!! Marcella Pranovia led the overall tournament par 3 statistics with a 2.70 (-3 for the week) according to GolfStat!!! Cassy Isagawa shot 70-71 to finish 4th for the tournament, and Cathleen Santoso tied for 21st. Cathleen continues her consistency, as she has finished in the Top-21 in ALL of her collegiate starts.
Overall we had a great time, ate way too many Valentine’s Day treats, got our Asian food fix, and are looking to get after it again next week. “I was excited to play at Stanford for our first tournament this season” Cassy says, “I was striking the ball really well and made a lot of key putts! I can’t wait to see what is in store for my team this spring.”
We sure felt the love this week as we had so much support down at Stanford! Many parents and family members came to cheer us on. Wendy and Drew Isagawa came all the way from Maui (top left), Barb and Bruce Hipp came from Idaho (top right), Laurie Inglis drove down from Eugene, and Caroline’s Aunt, Gretchen Inglis (both pictured on bottom right), came from North Carolina!
“Although our team did not play to our full potential at Stanford I believe that results we have had over winter break and during preseason practices will show up in the next few tournaments as we get more rounds under out belt.” Cali Hipp says.
The team is back in Eugene, grinding away at school and other areas of improvement within our games. We leave for the Westbrook Invitational, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, in Peoria, AZ, this Friday. THANK YOU everyone who followed us at Stanford! Hope to see you in Arizona!
