The CU women’s golf team heads into the second day of the women’s Big 12 tied for fourth place with a score of 302.
Oklahoma State girl’s team is leading the pack at the Jimmy Austin Golf Course in Norman, Okla. after Friday’s start.
CU is getting help from sophomore Emily Talley who is tied for fourth individually with a score of 72. March’s Big 12 Player of the Month finished one under par and is right where she wants to be.
“I felt more comfortable after the first few holes,” Talley said. “My bogey was one of the better bogey’s I’ve had in a while. I’m in the mix and that’s where I want to be. I’d actually rather be a few shots behind rather than trying to maintain a lead.”
Another young Buff, freshman Taylor Doyle shot a score of 74 and is tied for seventh place.
Senior Christine Kim who shot 76 and is four strokes over par also helped the Buffs. Her two birdies lead the way early for CU.
CU is trailing behind Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Iowa State headed into Saturday’s round.
The first of the Buff golfers will tee off at 8 a.m. on Saturday.
