Women's Golf In Fourth Place After Two Rounds at Ptarmigan Ram Classic

Ft. Collins, Colo.After the first two rounds of the 2008-09 season, the San Jose State women’s golf team finds itself in fourth place at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic.  Erica Moston and Cristina Corpus are tied for 14th as each shot a one-under, 143 two-round total.

On a cold day, the Spartans shot a three-over 579 after two rounds.  The team shot a one-under 287 in the first round which included 17 birdies.  In the second round, San Jose State made 10 birdies, but unfortunate double bogeys on the second and third holes.

“We played really well and had consistent play today,” said San Jose State head coach John Dormann. “The number of birdies we made today is a good sign for our team after the problems we had last season.  We had a few more opportunities to make birdies in the first round.  We have to shoot under par these days to have a chance to win at these tournaments.”

Moston and Corpus are tied for 14th and are five shots behind two players tied for the lead at six-under.  Moston shot one-under for the first round and had five birdies, while she shot an even 72 in round two with three birdies.  Corpus shot even in the first round with four birdies and a one-under in round two with three birdies. 

In her first collegiate tournament, freshman Madeleine Ziegert is tied for 21st with a two-over 143.  Katrina Delen-Briones shot a one-under 71 in the first round and finished with a 147, good to tie for 30th.  In her first tournament for San Jose State, Shraddhanjali Singh shot a 157 to tie for 78th.

California leads the tournament after shooting 19-under-par including 15-under-par in the second round.  Colorado is second at 14-under-par, followed by Louisville at six-under and then the Spartans.

The Spartans play the final round tomorrow at 8 a.m. MDT.  Live scoring is available on www.golfstat.com and a link can be found on www.sjsuspartans.com and go to the Live Stats section.
