Two Rounds Leaves TCU at 15th
April 3, 2004
Tempe, Ariz. - After a botched first attempt at the first round of the 2004 PING/ASU Invitational yesterday, the thunderstorms cleared enough for the 17 teams to get in both rounds today. TCU positioned itself at 15th heading into tomorrow's final 18-hole round, with senior Brooke Tull tied for 43rd to lead the Frogs.
Tull had a tough afternoon with a +6 second round following a two-over par morning round, tied for 14th. Although sinking most holes for par, a triple bogey on the ninth hole of the latter round set her back drastically. Freshman Camille Blackerby, only one stroke behind Tull and presently tied for 47th, had a few bogies here and there to set her back despite her mostly for-par shots.
Freshman Stacey Bieber had a round first round, with her first several holes managed during yesterday's shortened day: a quadruple bogey followed by a double bogey gave Bieber a handful to make up for. She finished today 15-over par, tied for 76th. Freshman Catherine Matranga scooted up a few slots from her morning position to finish today tied for 76th with a six-over par afternoon performance. Freshman Elin Emanuelsson rounded out the Horned Frogs tied for 85th with a 17-over par 161.
Washington's Paige Mackenzie leads the individual field with a four-under par day of 140 with Pepperdine's Carolina Llano shooting a low round of 67 in the second round to put her hot on Mackenzie's trail with three-under par. UCLA leads the teams with a three-over par total score of 579.
