CHAPEL HILL, N.C.—Junior Jenny Coleman shot an even par 72 and the University of Colorado women’s golf team is tied for 16th after the first round of the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational here Friday.  

Coleman is tied for ninth individually after the first round on the par 72, 6,379-yard UNC Finley Golf Course. As a team, CU shot 23-over par 311 and is tied with No. 11 Auburn through the first 18 holes.

Virginia leads the field, shooting a 2-under par 286 as a team while host North Carolina and Baylor are tied for second at even par 288. LSU sits in fourth at 6-over par 294 and Duke rounds out the top five at 8-over par 296. After the top five the field is somewhat bunched together as the 12 teams in sixth through 16th place are separated by just 13 strokes.

“Jenny continues to play extremely well,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “We just need to get her more help. She had a very solid day, but hopefully we can all pick it up in a hurry. It’s a great course and a fantastic field, but hopefully we can all step it up a little bit.”

Coleman played both her front and back nines at even par with a birdie and bogey on each side. She pared her first three holes and then birdied the par 4 No. 4 before bogeying the par 4 No. 7. After the turn, she immediately went back under par with a birdie on the par 4 No. 10 and remained under par until the final hole of the day when she got a bogey on the par 4 No. 5.

Freshman Megan Haase shot a 7-over par 79 and is tied for 71st but other than a stretch of three consecutive double bogeys, she shot 1-over par on the other 15 holes with two birdies and three bogeys. She opened her day with a bogey on the par 4 No. 1 and brought herself back to even par with a birdie on the par 3 No. 8. After making the turn, her fortune turned as the bogeyed No. 10 and then had three straight doubles on holes Nos. 11-13. Another bogey on the par 4 No. 15 put her at 8-over and she birdied the par 5 No. 17 to finish with a 79.

Junior Kristin Coleman and freshmen Alexis Keating and Allie Zech all shot 8-over par 80 and are all tied for 78th place. Ironically, all three each shot 4-over par 40 on both the front and back nines. Kristin Coleman was under par right off the bat with a birdie on the par 4 No. 1 but she struggled with the par 3’s on the front nine with double bogeys on both of them before closing the front nine with a bogey on the par 4 No. 9. On the back nine, she had six pars, two bogeys and a double bogey to close out with an 8-over par 80.

Keating had a birdie, three bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine and then two bogeys and a double bogey on the back nine to comprise her 8-over par 80. She was 5-over par through 10 holes and then settled down with four straight pars before a bogey on the par 4 No. 15 and a double bogey on the par 4 No. 16 to get to 8-over at which time she held par on the final two holes.

Zech had five pars and four bogeys on each side. The middle 11 holes she played at 2-over par, but she was 3-over par early in her round with three bogeys in her first four holes, and then struggled a bit down the stretch with three consecutive bogeys to close out her round.

Baylor’s Haley Davis has the individual lead after shooting a 5-under par 67 in the first round and has a two-stroke lead over Virginia’s Brittany Altomare, who is the only other player in the field to shoot in the 60s with a 3-under par 69. There was then a four way tie for third place at 2-under par 70, two strokes ahead of Jenny Coleman, between Duke’s Laetita Beck, Virginia’s Elizabeth Brightwell, North Carolina’s Jackie Chang and Florida’s Isabelle Lendl.

The second round will begin with the Buffaloes teeing off on No. 10 starting at 9 a.m. local time, 7 a.m. MT. Play will conclude Sunday with the third and final round.
