Women’s golf wins Clover Cup
The No. 15 Colorado women’s golf team dominated the competition at the Clover Cup in Scottsdale, Ariz. this weekend. The Buffs finished one-two-three and then beat out second place Oklahoma by 31 strokes.
Jessica Wallace won medalist honors by shooting a final round 72, and finished with a total of 211. Alex Stewart, who won the Sugar Bowl tournament last weekend, was not far behind. She finished second, only two strokes out of first place. Emily Talley was tied for first going into the final round but shot a 77 to finish in third. CQ!
“My only stress today was that I wanted all of them to win,” CU head coach Anne Kelly said to the Sports Information Department. “I wanted them all to tie for first.”
The entire team has played well in the beginning of the 2012 campaign. CU has finished inside the top ten in all four of their tournaments this spring.
