STANFORD, Calif.- Sophomore Cassy Isagawa cruised to a two-under 69 to finish the opening round in a tie for first place. The Oregon women’s golf team finished in 12th place at the Stanford Intercollegiate.  The Ducks shot 14-over 298 at the Stanford Golf Course in Stanford, Calif.

“Cassy’s strength today was her patience,” Head Coach
Ria Scott said. “She hit solid shots, stayed present and waited for putts to drop. She likes this golf course and it suits her game very well.”

The Wailuku, Hawai'i native took advantage of the perfect weather of 72 degrees and sunny skies and tied her best score of the season at 69. She carded three birdies and only had one bogey on the day.

“Today was a very steady day,” Isagawa said. “I just really stuck with my game plan and stayed patient today.”

Hanule Sky Seo who transferred from Penn State this season had her best score as a Duck thus far. The St. Louis, Missouri native shot three-over 74 and finished in a tie for 34th place. The Ducks also counted scorecards from freshman Caroline Inglis (five-over-76) and sophomore Cali Hipp (eight-over-79), who finished in a tie for 52nd and 77th, respectively. Raphaela Dyer also competed and shot 11-over 81.

“We need to execute a little bit better on and around the greens tomorrow,” Scott said. “Hanule played a lot of good holes as well today. Look for Caroline, Cali and Raffi (Dyer) to rebound tomorrow, they learned from today and are ready to take it on this weekend.”

On the individual leaderboard there was a three-way tie for first place after the first round. Isagawa is tied for first place with Southern Cal’s Doris Chen and Oklahoma State’s Josephine Janson who all finished at two-over 69. 

No. 3 Southern California holds the first place position after shooting two-over 286. One shot behind the Trojans is Oregon State (287) in second place. Currently in third place is No. 13 Vanderbilt who shot four-over 288.

The Ducks hope to improve tomorrow in the second round, Oct. 20, teeing off at 8:30am (PT).
