LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. – The Colorado State women’s golf team took sole possession of third place in the Mountain West Championship at Wigwam Resort on Saturday. The Rams beat their previous-round team score by four strokes to move ahead of New Mexico.
CSU (616) only trails tournament leader TCU (603) and second-place San Diego State (608). The Rams lead New Mexico by one stroke heading into Sunday’s final round.
Despite dropping back four spots, Christina Spinzig is still in contention for the conference championship with a 72-76=148 (+4). Head Coach Angie Collier commented on Spinzig’s strong play thus far and pointed out some areas of opportunity.
“Christina had another solid performance,” said Collier. “She only hit 9 greens and she was 50% on up and downs.”
Brianna Espinoza is tied for sixth and in good position after posting a 75-74=149 (+5). Collier expects Espinoza to get some breaks with the putter on Sunday.
“Bri had only two bogeys and 16 pars, so I look for some putts to fall tomorrow,” commented Collier.
Betsy Kelly jumped up eight spots on the leader board to 17th after she carded an 82-74=156 (+12). Collier was encouraged by what she saw from Kelly.
“Betsy had a much better start and was striking the ball better than she has all spring,” Collier said.
Cecilie Krefting shot an 81-82=163 (+19) and Sarah Roering posted an 89-84=173.
Sanna Nuutinen of TCU leads the individual competition with a two-round total of 143 (-1) followed by Christine Wong (+2) of San Diego State, Manon De Roey (+3) of New Mexico and Malin Enarsson (+3) of San Diego State.
The Rams are in the top three heading into the final round, something Collier likes to see.
“We are excited to play in the leaders groups tomorrow,” said Collier. “It will be a great experience for this young team.”
