GOLF, Ill.—Junior Jenny Coleman is just five strokes behind the leaders and the University of Colorado women’s golf team is in 13th after the first two rounds of the 2012 Windy City Classic here Monday, hosted by Northwestern University.  

The Buffaloes shot a 308-303—611, or 35-over par on the 6,333-yard Glen View Club course.  Washington leads the way at 4-over par 580 after shooting the only under-par team round of the day in the first round (1-under par 287).  Arizona had the best second round of the day (1-over par 289) to pull within two of the Huskies at 6-over par 582.  Iowa State is third at 10-over par 586 with Notre Dame two shots back at 12-over par 588 in fourth and UC Davis rounds out the top five at 14-over par 590.  

“Like I keep saying, we are close,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “We just keep making too many mental errors.  We’re probably about 10 shots off per round where we need to be, which if you break that down it’s one shot per player per nine holes.  It’s both making better decisions and having a little more confidence.”

Coleman is currently tied for 13th but is just five strokes back of the co-leaders at 2-over par 146.  Her 1-under par 71 in the second round marked one of just 14 subpar scores of the day in the entire field through two rounds.  She actually shot her final 33 holes at 1-under par after sitting at 3-over par through three holes to get her day started.  

She double bogeyed No. 2 and then bogeyed No. 3 to go 3-over through her first three holes and then settled down with one birdie and one bogey the rest of the first round to stay at 3-over.  She was two over par through her first seven holes in the second round but birdied No. 8 to bring it back to 1-over par and then birdied two of her final three holes of the day to get back under par and into contention for Tuesday’s final round.  

“Jenny continued to play solid,” Kelly said. “And she didn’t make a lot of putts.  Her ball-striking was excellent. She is definitely playing some good golf, that’s for sure.”

Coleman now has four subpar rounds on the young season, all in the last five rounds she’s played after accomplishing that feat in all three rounds of the Dick McGuire Invitational, which she won medalist honors, two weeks ago.  Her four rounds this season is already in the top 10 in CU history and she now has 13 career such rounds, tied for third-most in the record book alongside Dominique Pytlewski

The Buffs struggled as a team on the Par 5 holes through the first two rounds with 16 bogeys and just three birdies on the four holes through two rounds.  The Buffs also had nine double or triple bogeys as a team.  

“With how we can hit, we need to be under par on Par 5s,” Kelly said. “We also have to eliminate the doubles or worse.  I have seen improvement in sand shots and other things we’ve been working on, but it will just take a little time.  They’re good players and a talented group; we still have some work to do and it may take most of the fall to get settled down.”

Freshman Alexis Keating is tied for 46th place at 5-over par 153 after a 5-over 77 in the first round and 4-over 76 in the second.  Like Coleman, she got a double bogey on the par 3 No. 2 hole along with a bogey to open her round at 3-over par and played the rest of that round even par with three birdies and three bogeys until the final hole of the round, which she double bogeyed to finish at 5-over.  She learned from her mistake and birdied the first two holes of the second round, a five-stroke improvement, but hit a patch midway through her round and from holes Nos. 6-14, she shot at 6-over par before settling down and getting pars on her final four holes.  

Freshman Allie Zech is tied for 59th place two strokes behind Keating at 11-over par 155 after a first round 4-over par 76 and second-round 7-over par 79.  She was leading the Buffs through the first half of the opening round, shooting even par with one birdie and one bogey, before a stretch of five holes with four bogeys put her at 4-over on the back nine.  She got the second round off on the wrong foot with a triple-bogey on the first hole and after a double bogey on her fourth hole, she settled down and played the final 14 holes at 2-over par with three birdies and five bogeys.  

Junior Kristin Coleman is tied for 65th at 13-over par 157 after an 8-over par 80 in the first round and a 5-over par 77 in the second.  She was the only CU golfer without a double bogey or worse in the first 36 holes.  She had a string of five straight bogeys on the front nine from hole Nos. 2-6 and then another stretch of three bogeys on the back nine in the final four holes to finish at 8-over.  In the second round, she was more consistent, shooting a 1-over par on the front nine with eight pars and one bogey and through 16 holes, she was 3-over par before bogeys on her final two holes of the day.  

Freshman Megan Haase is tied for 70th at 17-over par 161 after shooting 10-over par 82 in the first round and 7-over 79 in the second.  She shot identical 5-over par 41s on both the front and back nine in the first round and again on the front nine of the second round with one double bogey and three bogeys in each set of nine holes and settled down to close her round out with a bogey on No. 11 and then six pars in her final seven holes to close out the final round at 7-over par 79.

UC Davis’ Amy Simanton and Notre Dame’s Lindsey Weaver both lead the way at 3-under par 141 with Arizona’s Manon Gidali and Iowa State’s Punpaka Phuntumabamrung tied for third two strokes back at 1-under par 143.  Arizona’s Andrea Vilarasau and Washington’s Jennifer Yang are both tied for fifth at even par 144 and six players are tied for seventh at 1-over par 145, one stroke ahead of Jenny Coleman.    

Action concludes Tuesday at the Buffs third event of the season.  CU will start off on hole No. 10 with tee times beginning at 7:42 a.m. MT.
