WSU women’s golf completed the first day of the Pac-12 Championships on Monday where they finished in seventh place with a total of 298 (+14). Leading the PAC currently is Southern California finishing with a combined 283 (-1).

Leading the way for the Cougars after the first round is freshman Amy Chu who carded 69 (-2), followed by freshman teammate Darcy Habgood who finished with 74 (+3).

As of Monday, Chu is tied for second place, making her the only Cougar to start in the top-10 for the championships.

Senior Madison Odiorne completed round one with 75 (+4) placing her in a tie for 25th, right behind Habgood’s 20th place.

To round out the pack for the Cougars are junior Marie Lund-Hansen with 80 (+9) and redshirt junior Emily Baumgart, who carded 81 (+10).

Lund-Hansen placed 46th and Baumgart finished just outside of the top-50 in a tie for 51st place.

Chu will be looking to carry over her impressive day one performance to the next two days, while her other teammates will be looking to make up for the high stroke count.

With two more days left in the Pac-12 Championships, the Cougars still have plenty of ground to cover but are sitting in a good position after one round. The Cougars are placed one position higher than where they finished last year and are one position above UW.

While the team collectively is positioned higher, so are each of the players that are returning from last year’s championships with the lowest ranking Cougar this year starting at No. 51.

The Pac-12 Championships will resume all day today followed by the final round on Wednesday.
