DAVIS, Calif. - Led by freshman Hannah Sun, who shot 1-under throughout the front nine, and ended Wednesday’s final round at the Stanford Intercollegiate, hosted by Condoleezza Rice, at 1-over, Yoonhee Kim’s 1-over start to her day through the first nine holes and a 1-over result posted by Samantha Hutchison throughout her back nine, UC Davis climbed the team leaderboard and posted a team score of 304 for the day. That helped the Aggies finish 11th for the event among a field of teams that included six top 25 programs, and another three ranked within this week’s Golfstat’s top 50 national rankings.
Thanks to a 9-under final round team score, UCLA erased its seven-stroke deficit and upended the host Cardinal at Poppy Hills Golf Course to end its week as tournament champions with a 3-under 849. Stanford finished with an even-score 852; combined with the Bruins, these Pac-12 foes were the only teams to record a team score at or under par.
Stanford’s Andrea Lee and UCLA’s Patty Tavatanakit will share the individual crown after posting matching 6-under 207s. Of the 74 golfers who made the trek to Pebble Beach, only five finished under par with another two posting even scores.
Christine Danielsson led all Aggies by finishing tied for 28th with her 10-over 223. Two strokes separated Hutchison, who finished tied for 39th with a 13-over 226 from her teammate Kim, who tied for 49th at 15-over, two shots ahead of Madison Wood’s 56th-place finish (17-over, 230).
Even though the start of the final round was delayed due to fog, Sun response was a perfect one. Once action began, she recorded birdies in two of her first three holes. She then added another birdie to her collection five holes later to post a 1-under score throughout her first nine played. The par-3 2nd hole — the Aggies opened the day’s action on the Hole 10 — is where Sun collected her final birdie, which helped her finish with the team’s lowest individual score on Wednesday.
The second hole was an enjoyable experience for the Aggies throughout the day since Hutchison and Wood also carded 2s during their respective visits.
Even though Kim did not record a birdie on the second hole, she did so on the 12th and 16th to record a 1-over before heading into her back nine.
Since this is the final event on the team’s fall schedule, everyone will now enjoy a break until competition resumes next spring. Visit UCDavisAggies.com throughout the upcoming weeks for the unveiling of the Aggies’ 2018 spring schedule.
