Quest For Title #109: Women's Golf Championship Final Round

The UCLA Women's Golf team is down to the final 18 holes of its season, getting ready to play the final round of the NCAA Championships in Tennessee.

The Bruins finished the third round on Thursday with the same 11-stroke deficit to tournament-leading Alabama that the team faced at the end of the second round. What that obscures is what happened in those 18 holes. UCLA shot +18 as a team on Wednesday, matching Alabama's score but falling from a tie for 2nd place to a tie for 9th. Making up 11 strokes in one day may simply be too much to ask, but the team still has confidence.

"Today was pretty tough," Head Coach Carrie Forsyth said. "The conditions on the back nine made scoring difficult. We did a lot of good things today, and although we are disappointed that we didn't make up ground on the leader, we are still within distance. We are one good round away from accomplishing our goal and are going into tomorrow with a positive attitude and calm confidence."

Looking at yesterday's scores and the leaderboard, it seems that teams that started the day playing the back 9 fared much better than teams that started on the 1st hole, so it may have been a matter of conditions on that part of the course turning difficult as the afternoon went on.

The Bruins begin teeing off at 10:59am, with Tiffany Lua leading off for UCLA, followed by Ani Gulugian, Lee Lopez, Erynne Lee and Brianna Do.

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

GO BRUINS!
