Weather Overshadows Day 2 of B1G Women’s Golf Championship



INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Blustery temperatures, a driving rain and an almost three-hour weather delay hampered round two of action at the 2015 Big Ten Women’s Golf Championship at The Fort Golf Resort in Indianapolis.

The Indiana Hoosiers shot a 310 on the day and sit in 13th place with a score of 611 (301-310). Ohio State (573) holds the top spot with a five-stroke lead over Purdue (578). Northwestern is one stroke back of the Boilermakers (579), with Michigan State (585) and Michigan (588) rounding out the top five.

Senior Elizabeth Tong continues to pace Indiana, posting a 6-over 78 to sit tied for 26th (72-78). Tong was even through eight holes thanks to a birdie on six and would par three of the first four holes on the back nine. A bogey on 14 was followed by par on 15, closing the round with three straight bogeys.

Sophomore Ana Sanjuan is tied for 32nd with a score of 151 (76-75). Sanjuan surged back on day two with the low round of the day for Indiana. She had a team-best four birdies on Saturday, starting with the first hole. Sitting at +2 after nine holes, Sanjuan went birdie-par on 10 and 11 before back-to-back bogeys brought her score to +3. She gained a stroke back with a birdie on the par-3 14th hole, and after a bogey on 15 came back to par 16 and birdie 17. A bogey on 18 put her one over for the final nine holes.

Junior Camille Chevalier posted a 78 on Saturday and is tied for 57th at 156 (78-78). Chevalier had a good start to the day with a +2 tally after nine holes, including a birdie on six. She would make par on the first four holes of the back nine but her chances to move up the leaderboard were diminished with bogeys on four of the final five holes.

Freshman Pear Siriko is tied with Chevalier at 57th after shooting 81 on Saturday (75-81). Siriko started the day strong, opening with birdies on one and two, but went bogey-double bogey-bogey on the next three holes. Siriko made the turn at +4 before carding her third birdie of the day on the par-4 10th hole. That was followed by a double bogey on 11, bogeys on 12 and 15, and a double on 18 to close the round.

Sophomore Theresa-Ann Jedra is tied for 70th with a score of 160 (81-79). After going 5-over in the first nine holes, Jedra birdied 10 and added her second birdie of the day on the par-4 12th hole. She would par three of the six remaining holes.

Senior Sarah Dusman sits at tied for 77th in the field after posting an 82 in round two (81-82). Dusman started with a double bogey on one but went par-par before bogeying the par-4 fourth hole. Her lone birdie of the round came on the par-5 sixth hole, but was followed by bogeys on seven and eight as she made the turn +5. After making par on three of the first five back nine holes, Dusman bogeyed three of the final four holes of the day.

The final 18 holes of championship play will take place Sunday with the Hoosiers teeing off from the 10th hole starting at 8:20 a.m. ET. The Hoosiers will play the final round with Penn State and Rutgers.
