April 19, 2005

The second-ranked UCLA women's golf team increased its lead to seven shots following the second round of the 19th Pacific-10 Conference Women's Golf Championship, hosted by California at Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton.

After a rough start, the Bruins posted a team score of 290 (+2) for a two-round total of 579 (+3). As a team, the Bruins had climbed as high as six strokes over par on the day, but 10 birdies by three UCLA players on the back nine pulled down their score. USC, which began the day two shots behind UCLA, fell back five strokes and posted a score of 295 (+7) for a 36-hole total of 586 (+10).

Arizona State and Arizona were tied for third at 589 (+13), followed by Washington State at 592 (+16). California climbed from eighth place to sixth, trimming 10 shots off Monday's score with a 295 (+7) and was in at 600 (+24). Washington fell from fourth to seventh at 602 (+26), followed by eighth-place Oregon at 616 (+40). Stanford dropped from seventh to ninth at 619 (+43) after ballooning 27 strokes over par with a second round score of 315. Oregon State was 10th at 639 (+63).

Individually, junior All-America Susie Mathews remained in the hunt for the conference title at five-under par 139, which was tied for second place. Mathews started the day with a bogey on the first hole, double-bogeyed the eighth and made the turn in three-over par. She reeled off four birdies on the inward nine for a 71 (-1).

Senior two-time All-America Charlotte Mayorkas started with double bogeys at the second and third holes to go to four-over par. She then made seven birdies over the next 14 holes, before ending with a bogey at the 18th for a 70 (-2). She was tied for fifth at 143 (-1).

Freshman Amie Cochran made the turn at one-over, including a double bogey at the second hole. After a bogey at the 10th, she birdied the 14th and the 16th and carded an even par 72. She was tied for ninth at 145 (+1).

Sophomore Hannah Jun was tied for 19th at 152 (+8) after posting a 77 (+5) and senior Melissa Martin was tied for 33rd at 158 (+12) following her round of 80 (+8).

A 66 (-6) by Washington State's Kim Welch was the low round of the day and put Welch atop the leaderboard at 138 (-8). Arizona's Cassandra Kirkland was tied with Mathews in second place at 139 (-5).
