GOLF, Ill.—Junior Jenny Coleman earned a top 20 performance, finishing tied for 14th as the University of Colorado women’s golf team finished 15th Tuesday at the 2012 Windy City Classic, hosted by Northwestern here at the Glen View Club.  

Coleman posted a final round 3-over par 75 to finish at 5-over par 221 while the rest of the Buffs struggled as the team finished at 32-over par 320 in the final round and 67-over par 931 for the tournament.  

“It was definitely a rough day,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “It was probably one of the toughest courses we’ve ever played, it’s a USGA caliber course, and the conditions were windy and tough today. It’s probably the first time most of these players, if not all, have seen a course like this.  But in the end it was a good learning experience and definitely pointed out areas we need to work on.  It showed us what level we need to aspire to be.  

Coleman’s final round consisted of one birdie, four bogeys and 13 pars.  Starting on the back nine, she had two bogeys on each side and her birdie came on the par 4 No. 4, which brought her back to 2-over through 13 holes.  She pared the next four holes and finished her tournament with a bogey on the final hole.  

“Jenny really was a bright spot,” Kelly said. “She hit the ball very well. She left a few storks out there with her putting, and really was very close to being in contention if a few more shots fell.  The putting was tough for all of us today; we will be working on that as well as our chipping.”

Freshman Alexis Keating shot a final round 8-over par 80 and finished at 17-over par 233 and tied for 60th place.  Other than a triple bogey on her seventh hole, the par 4 No. 16, she had five bogeys and 12 pars the rest of her round.  After the triple, she settled down with six straight pars and shot 2-over on the final 11 holes of her round.  

Freshman Allie Zech shot a final round 9-over par 81 and finished in 66th place at 20-over par 236.  She had just one double bogey and finished her round with one birdie, eight bogeys and eight pars.  Freshman Megan Haase shot a final round 12-over par 84 and finished tied for 73rd at 29-over par 245.  Half of her above par scores came on two holes where she had triple bogeys, 

Junior Kristin Coleman had two rough stretches, one on each side.  She shot a final round 14-over par 86 and finished in 72nd place at 27-over par 243.  On the back nine to start her round, she opened the first four holes at 5-over par and then had two bogeys and three pars before making the turn at 7-over.  Then from hole Nos. 2-5, she shot at 7-over par with two bogeys, a double and a triple, before closing her round with four straight pars.  

TCU’s April McCoy shot a 3-under par 69, the only final round in the 60s and just one of four under par, to win medalist honors and finish at 3-under par 214.  UC Davis’ Demi Runas and Notre Dame’s Lindsey Weaver finished tied for second just one stroke back at 1-under par 215.  Iowa State’s Punpaka Phuntumabamrung, UC Davis’ Amy Simanton and Northwestern’s Nicole Zhang all finished at even par 216 and tied for fourth place.  

The Buffs now have about a week-and-a-half off before the fourth tournament of the fall season, the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C., from Oct. 12-14.  After the east coast trip, CU will close out the fall Oct. 28-30 at the Alamo Invitational in San Antonio.
