SAN ANTONIO, Texas—Freshman Alexis Keating shot an even par 72 and the University of Colorado women’s golf team sits in 15th place after the first round of the 2012 Alamo Invitational. The Buffs shot a 15-over par 303. 

Oklahoma leads the event after shooting a 9-under par 279, holding a seven stroke advantage over SMU (2-under par 286). Tulane was also under par with a 1-under par 287 while Texas A&M (1-over par 289) and host Texas-San Antonio (2-over par 290) round out the top five.

"Overall not a great day," CU coach Anne Kelly said. "But we shot a lot better the second half of the day. Alexis and Devin (Dougherty) both played under par on the back nine of their round, the front nine of the course.  There are definitely signs of improvment, but we still have a ways to go.  Hopefully we can show a few more signs here in the next day or two and carry that into the break."
 
Colorado performed much better as the day wore on, shooting a collective 3-under par with the players scoring for the team on the front nine of the course, or back nine of their respective rounds, after shooting 15-over par on the back nine of the course or front nine of their rounds. The Buffs also dramatically improved on number of holes shooting a double bogey or worse, having just three between all five players in the round.

Keating caught fire on the front nine of the course, her back nine, after shooting 4-over in the first seven holes, she closed out her front side with two pars and then had four birdies in the last seven holes to finish even par, including birdies on two of the final three holes.

For Keating, it was the best round of her young career and first shooting at or under par and she is currently tied for 15th place. She became the fourth player to shoot at or under par and it’s the eighth such round for the Buffaloes this fall.

Junior Jenny Coleman shot a 4-over par 76 and is tied for 50th place. She shot a 3-over par on her front nine and then went to 5-over par with two bogeys after making the turn, but then shot 1-under over the final seven holes of her round to finish at 4-over.

Junior Kristin Coleman shot a 5-over par 77 and is tied for 58th place. Aside from a stretch of three holes in which she was 4-over par making the turn from No. 18 to Nos. 1 and 2, she was 1-over par on the other 15 holes with three birdies and four bogeys.

Dougherty shot a 6-over par 78 and is currently tied for 62nd place. Other than one tough hole where she shot an 8 on a Par 4, she was 2-over par on the other 17 holes with two birdies and four bogeys. She was 8-over on her front nine but rebounded to shoot 2-under par over her final nine holes. The 78 is the second-best round of her career behind her 77 in the second round of the Ptarmigan Ram Classic earlier this fall.

Freshman Megan Haase shot an 8-over par 80 and is currently tied for 65th place. She shot 4-over par 40 on both the front and back nine. After a birdie on No. 5, her 14th hole of the day, she sat at 5-over par, but then had a bogey and double bogey in the final four holes to finish at 8-over par.

Baylor’s Hayley Davis and SMU’s Jennifer Park are the co-leaders after the first round with 5-under par scores of 67. Three are then tied at 4-under par 68; Tulane’s Maribel Lopez Porras and Oklahoma’s duo of Kaitlyn Rohrback and Taylor Schmidt.

The Buffs continue action here in the final event of the fall season Monday with the second round, slated to start at 8:30 a.m. MT.
