The CU women’s golf team finished in 11th place, behind fellow Big 12 school Oklahoma, after two days of golfing under the Golden State sun.
California finished in first after overtaking host San Jose State during the final day at the Julie Inkster/Spartan Invitational on Tuesday.
Colorado finished in tenth place on Monday, but was unable to keep their standing the following day. However, the 20-over par 308 finish is a team best.
Sophomore Emily Talley shot 1-under par 71, good enough to end as the Buffs top finisher at 11th place. She also hit a team-high five bogeys.
Head coach Anne Kelly said Talley played well.
“She did get a double bogey, but she rebounded to finish strong with two late birdies to put herself in contention for a top 10 finish,” Kelley said.
A 2009 All-Big 12 Tournament Team Selection, Kelley’s performance capitulated the California native from 33rd place to 11th.
“I’ll take what I can get,” Talley said. “Today was a good ‘You don’t have to be perfect to have a good round of golf,’ day. I was just concentrating on each shot and overall it worked out. There were a few holes with some breeze where you we were clubbing up in some places, but nothing too extreme.”
Seniors Christine Kim and Julie Kim rounded out the top 40, with scores of 6-over par 78 to tie for 38th and 7-over par 79 to tie for 30th respectively.
Up next for the Buffs is the BYU Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah from March 22 to March 23.
