Amanda Kahn shot two rounds of 79
Oct. 1, 2013
Montana junior Tara Green shot a 1-over 73 on Tuesday and finished tied for sixth at the fourth annual Rose City Collegiate at the Langdon Farms Golf Club at Aurora, Ore. Green shot a 74 during Monday's opening round to finish the tournament 3-over and post her seventh career top-10 finish.
Montana shot a 313 Tuesday and finished in ninth place. The Grizzlies carded a 311 on Monday. Both rounds were played in steady rains that at times were heavy.
"Yesterday our main problem was reaching the greens," UM coach Joni Stephens said. "We had a difficult time choosing the right club to get us to the green with it so wet.
"Today we did a better job of that, but we didn't putt well."
The conditions had little effect on Green, who finished five shots behind medalist Anica Yoo of Oregon State. Yoo shot rounds of 69 and 73 to finish 2-under.
UC Irvine's Luciane Lee (71-72--143), at 1-under, was the only other golfer to finish under par. Three golfers finished 2-over.
Green, who had just 24 putts in Tuesday's round, did her best work on the course's four par 3s, which she played at 2-under over the two rounds. She also played 27 of the tournament's 36 holes at par, a total only two golfers bettered.
"Tara had a really good tournament," Stephens said. "She is able to play well on days that are not ideal because she is very good at staying in the moment, staying neutral, and not letting the conditions get to her."
Amanda Kahn continued her steady play through the early tournaments of her freshman year. She opened with a 79 on Monday and closed with another 79 on Tuesday to finish in a tie for 41st.
Green was the top finisher from among the 33 Big Sky Conference golfers competing. Portland State's A Ram Choi (77-73--150), last year's Big Sky Player of the Year, finished three shots behind Green.
PSU (311-300--611) shot a 300 on Tuesday to move up the standings into fifth. Sacramento State (313-307--620) was six shots better than Montana Tuesday and finished four strokes in front of the Grizzlies in eighth place.
Eastern Washington (314-315--629) finished 11th, Northern Colorado (330-318--648) 14th and Weber State (326-324--650) 15th.
Oregon State, which shot two rounds of 293, won the tournament by 14 strokes over Gonzaga (299-301--600) and UC Irvine (299-301--600).
Montana will conclude its fall tournament schedule at the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate in Palm Desert, Calif., on Oct. 12-13.
