VALLEJO, Calif. – The first tournament of the spring for Menlo College Women's Golf has concluded, and improvements were made from day one. The Tim Tierney Shootout, hosted by California State University East Bay, took place at Hiddenbrooke Golf Course, one that proved to be difficult for a majority of the field. Most of the top golfers in the tournament saw slight improvements in their scores in day two, but a many golfers failed to do so. Menlo College was one of the few programs that saw an overall decline in score, shaving a total of four strokes off their second round score to finish at 594 (299+295).
Tiffany Chan finished with the overall best score among Menlo golfers at 192 (95+97). Her second round score saw an increase of two strokes, which was right about average for what most of the field did in the second round. She finished with seven pars on the tournament. Alissa Thompson made a solid adjustment to her game in day two of the tournament, and shaved seven strokes off her score. She finished the two-day event at 195 (101+94), and led all Menlo golfers with nine pars on the tournament. Madison Holm rounded out the Menlo side with a 207 (103+104), staying consistent over her two rounds, something most of the field did not accomplish.
California Baptist won the tournament with their five golfers combining to shoot 588 (295+293). Laura Scrivner, also of California Baptist, led the way as the best golfer in the event, shooting 145 (73+72).
Menlo College Women's Golf will be in action as the calendar turns to April with the UC Santa Cruz Invitational. The three-day event begins on March 31 and runs through April 2, and it will be the final tune-up for Menlo before the GSAC/Cal Pac Women's Golf Championships on April 16-18.
