Sept. 24, 2007

Two-time All-American Tiffany Joh paced top-ranked UCLA to within four shots of the lead after 18 holes at the NCAA Fall Preview hosted by New Mexico at its campus championship course Monday in Albuquerque, NM.

The Bruins toured the first 18 holes in one-under par 291 and trailed first-place Duke by four shots. USC was third at even par 292, followed by Arizona State and Vanderbilt in a tie for fourth at 295 (+3).

The UNM Championship Course plays to a par of 73 over 6,351 yards.

Joh birdied three of her last six holes on the outward nine for a three-under 33 and played her inward nine in even par 37 to lead the Bruins with a first round 70. She was tied for fifth place, three shots behind the leader.

Sophomore Sydnee Michaels posted an even par 73 and was tied for 16th place. She played her first nine in three-over par 39, then birdied her 11th, 12th, 14th and 15th holes to move to one-under par. A bogey at her 16th hole brought her back to even par. Freshmen Glory Yang and Maria Jose Uribe were tied for 23rd at one-over 74, and junior Ryann O'Toole was tied for 80th after posting a 78 (+5).

Pepperdine's Taylor Karle was the first-round leader at six-under 67.
