MAUI, Hawai’i—With No. 11 University of Colorado women’s golf team is in the lead through two rounds at the 2012 Anuenue Spring Break Challenge, hosted by the University of Hawai’i here at The Bay Course at Kapalua.  

Colorado shot the best second round in the field, a 1-over par 289, and sit at 12-over par 588 through two rounds and lead the field by three strokes.  The top four are all within six strokes, as No. 15 California is second at 15-over par 591 with No. 13 Tennessee (16-over par 592) and No. 36 Mississippi (18-over par 594) are all bunched together atop the leader board.  No. 19 Pepperdine and No. 50 Oregon State are tied for fifth at 29-over par 605.  

“It’s been a long time since we had a 36-hole day,” CU head coach Anne Kelly said. “We played really well all day, but especially in the second round.  There was a good, consistent, 20 to 25 mile per hour wind all day and it was dusty.”

The Buffs were tied for third place after the first round at 11-over par 299 and were four strokes behind California.  The Bears were 8-over par in the second round to give CU its 3-stroke advantage.  

“We threw some shots away in the first round, just getting used to the wind and used to the golf course,” Kelly said. “It’s a good course and has some tricky holes.  The more you play and more experience you get, the better you do and that certainly showed for us this afternoon.”

Each of CU’s five golfers shot a better score in the second round.  Senior Jess Wallace and sophomore Jenny Coleman are both tied for third individually at 1-over par 145.  Wallace shot a 1-over par 73 in the first round and an even par 72 in the second round while Coleman was 2-over 74 in the first round and 1-under 71 in the second.  

In the two rounds, Wallace had seven birdies and eight bogeys while Coleman had seven birdies, six bogeys and one double bogey.  

“It was pretty good out there today,” Coleman said. “Everything was working well for me.  I missed a few shots I the first round, but in the second I was hitting more greens and making it easier on myself.”

Senior Emily Talley shot a 4-over par 76 in the first round and even par 72 in the second round and is tied for eighth place at 4-over 148.  She moved up 12 spots from a tie for 20th after the first round and played consistently in the second round with two bogeys, two birdies and 14 pars.  

Sophomore Alex Stewart shot a 4-over par 76 in the first round and shaved two strokes off her second round with a 2-over 74.  She is tied for 16th place and just two strokes out of the top 10.  In her first round, she had a triple-bogey on the first hole and matched that total over the next 35 holes to finish the day at 6-over 150.  

Sophomore Kristin Coleman is tied for 40th at 14-over par 158 after a first round 8-over 80 and second round 6-over 78.  In her first round, she had eight bogeys and 10 pars and in the second round, she had four birdies and outside one triple bogey, she was 3-over on the other 17 holes.  

Senior Taylor Doyle, playing individual, finished the first round at 14-over par 86 and cut her score in half and shot a 7-over par 79 in the second round.  She is 21-over par 165 and tied for 62nd.  

California’s Daniel Holmqvist is in the lead after two rounds with a 6-under par 138 while Pepperdine’s Alina Ching is in second at 3-under 141.  Along with Wallace and Jenny Coleman, Tennessee’s A.J. Newell is also tied for third at 1-over par 145.  

Tuesday’s final round is scheduled for a shotgun start and will get underway at 8 a.m. local Hawaiian time.  

“We just need to do the same things,” Kelly said. “The worst thing you can do is go out trying to win.  We need to stick to the game plan, which is just take one shot at a time, make good, smart decisions and let the scores take care of themselves, add them up when you’re done.  It’s pretty bunched up in the top four, so we will have to play a solid round of golf to win.  California, Tennessee and Mississippi are all playing well, they’re really good teams.”
