SAN ANTONIO, Texas—The University of Colorado women’s golf team’s fall season is now complete as the Buffs finished in 13th place at the 2012 Alamo Invitational, held here the past three days at the Briggs Ranch Golf Course. The Buffs shot a final round 22-over par 310 to finish at 58-over par 922 for the event.  

“As a team, we didn’t play all that great today,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “But I think everybody has a good idea of what they need to work on, we definitely have a challenging spring schedule ahead of us, we have a lot of work to do before then, but we also made some progress throughout the fall, we just have to keep plugging away and get as much good work in as we can.”

Oklahoma controlled the meet from start to finish and ended up with an eight stroke victory, shooting a final round 3-under par 285 to finish 16-under par 848, topping Texas A&M’s total of 8-under par 856 after the Aggies also posted a final round 285. Host Texas-San Antonio and Tulane were the only two other teams under par, tying for third place at 1-under par 863. Tulane posted the best final round team score of 8-under par 280 to earn the top three finish. Baylor finished fifth as the lead of a second pack of teams some 11 strokes behind the third place teams with a final team score of 10-over par 874.

Junior Jenny Coleman and freshman Alexis Keating both posted final round scores of 3-over par 75. Junior Kristin Coleman and freshman Megan Haase both shot 8-over par 80 to count toward the team score while senior Devin Dougherty was one stroke back at 9-over par 81.

Jenny Coleman finished her tournament at 7-over par 223 and in a tie for 36th position. She started off on No. 15 and quickly went over par with a double bogey on the par 4 No. 16, but then rebounded to shoot 1-over on the final 16 holes of the round. She birdied the par 4 No. 1, bogeyed No. 2 and then had nine pars before a bogey on No. 11 put her at 3-over and she finished her round with three pars.

“Once again Jenny had a good ball-striking day,” Kelly said. “She just needs to make a few more putts. But she was definitely a bright spot for us throughout the fall and hopefully she’ll take that momentum into the spring.”

Keating had a similar round to Jenny Coleman on paper with one birdie, two bogeys and a double bogey and she also went over par with a double bogey on her fourth hole, the par 4 No. 2. She then had two more bogeys and was 4-over par before getting her first birdie of the day on the par 4 No. 13. She finished tied for 53rd at 14-over par 230 but was just 3-over par in her first and last rounds.

“Alexis hung in there well today and finished strong,” Kelly said. “It was good for her to rebound like that, it was important that she got off to a strong start, she’s been working on that so that’s a good thing.”

Kristin Coleman was having the best round of any CU player and was 2-under par through 10 holes with three birdies and a bogey before she got a double bogey on the par 3 No. 8 to move to even par. She stayed at even until a disastrous No. 11 where she carded a 10 on the par 5 hole. She then bogeyed three of the final four holes to finish at 8-over, giving her a 54-hole score of 17-over par 233, good for a tie for 59th.

“Kristin really had it going for a while and just had a disaster hole,” Kelly said. “She’s been working very hard on her swing and made a lot of progress this week but just needs to be a little more consistent and take it the entire way through a round, but it’s encouraging.”

Buffs Finish 13th At Alamo Invitational * October 30, 2012 * 2/2/2

Haase struggled out of the gate with a bogey, double bogey and triple bogey right out of the gate to sit at 6-over par through three holes. She then settled down to shoot 2-over the rest of the way with two birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey. After the first three, she had a stretch of six holes where she was 2-under to bet back to 4-over par before a bogey and double bogey put her at 7-over as she transitioned back to the course’s back nine. She shot 1-over par on the final seven holes of her round with six pars and a bogey for her 80 which gave her a final total of 22-over par 238, good for a tie for 68th.

Dougherty finished in 73rd with a 54-hole score of 28-over par 244 after her final round 81. She bogeyed her first two holes but really settled down with six straight pars to sit at 2-over par through eight holes. She then had a bogey and her only double bogey of the day as she closed out the front nine of the course to sit at 5-over through 10 holes. She had a string of four consecutive bogeys with four pars on the remainder of the back nine to finish at 9-over par.

Tulane’s Maribel Lopez Porras moved up from a tie for fifth to take medalist honors with a final round 3-under par 69 to finish at 7-under par 209. She defeated Baylor’s Lauren Taylor, who shot a final round 70, by two strokes while Oklahoma’s duo of Kaitlyn Rohrback and Taylor Schmidt finished tied for third at 4-under par 212. There was a five way tie for fifth place at 3-under par 213.
The Buffs will now have about three-and-a-half months off before the spring season starts at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif. Feb. 11-13.

“We will take a little time off and get caught up in school,” Kelly said. “But we do need to get some good work in, we have a good idea of what we need to do and that spring schedule will be here before you know it.”
