Women's Golf Team Places Second At NCAA Championships

May 20, 2005

The second-ranked UCLA women's golf team fell just short of defending its NCAA title, placing second by five strokes to Duke at the NCAA Women's Golf Championship, hosted by Oregon State at the par 71, 6,312-yard Meadows Course at the Sunriver Resort in Redmond, Ore.

UCLA posted a score of 293 (+9) on Friday for a final 72-hole total of 1175 (+39). Top-ranked and third-round leader Duke held off UCLA's late charge by posting a 297 (+13) for a final score of 1170 (+34). Auburn was third with a team total of 1176 (+40), followed by Pepperdine with a 1179 (+43) and California with a 1180 (+44).

Birdies on hole 17 by freshman Amie Cochran, sophomore Hannah Jun and junior Susie Mathews helped the Bruins push past Auburn into second place.

Cochran was UCLA's highest finisher, tying for third place with a final total of 288 (+4), just two strokes behind champion Anna Grzebien of Duke (286). Chochran tied for the day's best mark, firing a 68 (-3). Two other Bruins placed in the Top 20 - Charlotte Mayorkas (T-14th at +11) and Jun (T-16th at +12). Mathews tied for 74th (+21), and Melissa Martin tied for 88th (+24).
