Quest for Title #109: U.C.L.A. Women's Golf Championship Third Round

Good news and bad news, Bruins.

The good news is that after an opening round +4 and a slow start to the day in Round 2, our #1 Ranked Bruins finished strong yesterday for a +2 on the day and are currently tied for second overall with UNC and Virginia at +6 for the tournament.

The bad news is that Alabama is boat racing the field so far. The Tide followed their first round -2 with a second round -3 to lead the tournament by 11 shots going into Round 3. Vanderbilt is the only other team to have one under par round.

It's a big deficit, but with 36 holes still to play, it is not an insurmountable one. However the Bruins have little margin for error at this point. From Coach Forsyth:

"Although we're quite a bit back from Alabama, we know that there's a lot of golf left to be played," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "We're one round away and we're looking forward to playing in the final pairing tomorrow. We're looking forward to having a really solid team round."

One potential benefit is that the Bruins will be partnered today with Alabama and UNC, and hopefully the two chasing teams can put some pressure on the Tide through the day.

The Bruins were again led yesterday by Senior Brianna Do who shot a second round -1, and after her even par opening round moved into a tie for 9th place overall in the individual standings, just six shots out of the overall lead. Yesterday, in addition to Do's one under, the Bruins carded three +1 rounds (and a +5 which was thrown out for the day) to get their +2 total for the day.

The Bruins will tee off today at 9:55 PT with just one switch at the end of the order. That means we will see Ani Gulugian (So) first, followed by Tiffany Lua (Jr), Lee Lopez (Jr), Erynne Lee (Fr) and Brianna Do (Sr).

The NCAA tournament site will provide live team scoring and individual scoring, so you can follow along with our Bruins today.

Go Bruins!
