CHAPEL HILL, N.C.—The University of Colorado women’s golf team shot its best team round of the tournament but it wasn’t enough to move up the standings as the Buffaloes finished 17th here at the 2012 Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational, hosted by North Carolina at its Finley Golf Course. The Buffs shot a final round 19-over par 307 to finish at 66-over par 930.

The Tar Heels defended their home turf, winning the event by 13 strokes after shooting a 3-over par 291 in the final round to finish 8-over par 872 through 54 holes. Baylor and Mississippi finished tied for second at 21-over par 885 with Duke taking fourth at 23-over par 887. Arkansas and Virginia both tied for fifth at 24-over par 888.

“We had some slight improvements today,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “And that’s encouraging. We just have to keep working, figure out how to putt a little better and keep plugging away.”

Freshman Allie Zech shot a 2-over par 74 to lead the way for the Buffaloes while Jenny Coleman, who was tied for seventh entering the day, finished with a 7-over par 79 and slipped to a tie for 30th. Freshman Megan Haase (4-over par 76) and Junior Kristin Coleman (6-over par 78) both had their best rounds of the tournament while freshman Alexis Keating finished her final round with a 9-over par 81.

“Allie especially showed improvement today and played very well, and Megan had a solid round for the most part,” Kelly said. “Unfortunately Jenny had a rough day, but that will happen.”

Zech’s 74 improved her to 73rd place overall after she finished at 19-over par 235 through 54 holes. After shooting even par in the final half of her second round Saturday, she continued that solid play and shot 2-over par with two birdies and four bogeys. She shot 17-over par in her first 27 holes and then just 2-over par over her final 27 holes in the tournament. She pared her first seven holes in the third round and then in the next five had consecutive birdies sandwiched by a pair of bogeys to remain at even par. Two bogeys down the stretch gave her the final score of 2-over par.

Jenny Coleman’s 79 left her at 8-over par 224 for the tournament and tied for 30th. She bogeyed three of her first four holes out of the gate before making the turn to the front nine of the course where she settled down and had a birdie and three pars to pull back to 2-over par through eight holes. She then had two double bogeys in the next three holes but again quickly settled down with six pars and a bogey over the final seven holes to finish at 7-over.

Haase shaved seven strokes off her second round score and her 76 gave her a final score of 22-over par 238 and tied for 82nd. She led the Buffs with three birdies but three double bogeys and one bogey pushed her over par. Starting on No. 17, she pared her first four holes and then had her first double bogey to go to 2-over through five holes. She responded with a birdie and five pars on the remainder of the front nine of the course to stay close to par at 1-over through 11 holes. She then had a bogey and double bogey after making the turn back to the back nine of the course and then responded with two birdies in the next three holes to go back to 2-over. Her final double bogey of the day put her at 4-over where she finished her round.

Keating shot a final round 9-over par 81 and her 54-hole score of 20-over par 236 tied her for 77th place. She had a rough start with a bogey, triple bogey and double bogey in her first three holes to go 6-over par immediately, but she settled down to shoot 3-over par over the remaining 15 holes, including an even par showing with one birdie and one bogey on the course’s front nine.

Kristin Coleman’s 6-over par 78 final round put her at 26-over par 242 for the tournament and she finished tied for 89th. After four bogeys in her first five holes, she settled down and shot a 1-under par in the next eight holes to be 3-over par through 13 holes. A double bogey and bogey in her final five holes pushed score to 6-over in the final round.

Florida’s Isabelle Lendl won medalist honors with a 3-under par 69 in the final round to finish 6-under par 210 through 54 holes. She won by three strokes over Baylor’s Hayley Davis, who led through the first two rounds. Davis shot a final round 1-over 73 to finish at 3-under par 213, one stroke ahead of Virginia’s Brittany Altomare, who took third at 2-under 214. Mississippi’s Haley Sanders and Baylor’s Lauren Taylor tied for fourth at 1-under par 215.

The Buffs will close out the fall season Oct. 28-30 at the Alamo Invitational in San Antonio.
