Women's Golf Leads Lamkin Grip Cal Poly Invitational; Corpus, Moston In Third Place

Arroyo Grande, Calif.Cristina Corpus recorded the highlight of the day for the San Jose State women’s golf team in the first round of the Lamkin Grip Cal Poly Invitational at the par-72 Cypress Ridge Golf Course.  The Spartans finished the day in first place with a 295, four shots ahead of host Cal Poly at 299.  Corpus and Erica Moston each shot a 71 to tie for third place.

Corpus recorded an eagle on the par-5, 454-yard ninth hole.  She hit a three-wood from 205 yards from the hole to within 15 feet of the cup and made her eagle putt.

Moston shot her 10th round of par or better this season and her seventh round under par this year with her 71.  Her round included two birdies on holes 16 and 18.

Other Spartans contributing on Monday included Kanika Minocha who is tied for 18th with a 76, Katrina Delen-Briones and Madeleine Ziegert each shot a 77 to tie for 27th.  Playing as an individual and in her first collegiate tournament, Jody Ho shot a 78 and is tied for 32nd.

“We had a nice day today,” said San Jose State head coach John Dormann.  “However, we did not capitalize on enough birdie holes during our round and had to count some big numbers today.  Tomorrow, we need to eliminate the big mistakes we made today and just keep playing the way we always do and just keep it simple.

“Tuesday’s round will be a good experience for us to play as the leader of a tournament.  We need to go out and end our fall semester play on a very positive note.”

Final round action begins Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.
