UCLA Falls to Sixth at PING/ASU Invitational

April 4, 2008

With three holes to play in the first round of the PING/ASU Invitational, the top-ranked UCLA women's golf team was two-under par in second place. Sophomore Sydnee Michaels was four-under par with three holes left. The Bruins were poised to make a run.

But Michaels played the final three holes in three-over par and junior Ryann O'Toole, just two-over after a par at the 15th, played the closing three holes in eight-over par, and the Bruins fell from the runner-up spot to sixth place.

Thirteen shots off the lead entering the second round, the Bruins (294, +6) have lots of ground to make up. USC was in first place at 281 (-7), followed by host Arizona State at even par 288. Georgia was third at one-over 289, followed by fourth-place Oklahoma State at 292 (+4). Texas A&M was one shot in front of the Bruins in fifth place at 293 (+5).

Individually, junior Tiffany Joh was tied for third place after carding a score of 70 (-2). Joh was three-under par until she bogeyed the par 3 16th -- a hole that UCLA played in a collective eight-over par. Michaels posted a one-under par 71 and was tied for seventh place. Freshman Glory Yang was tied for 38th after posting a 75 (+3) and junior Maiya Tanaka was tied for 62nd after signing for a 78 (+6). O'Toole was tied for 78th after her 81 (+9).
