Chou remains in top-10 after second day at Cardinal Cup
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Following her 3-over first round at the Cardinal Cup, Kansas freshman Yi-Tsen Chou held on to a spot in the top-10 Monday after a 4-over 76 and is tied for 10th place.
With another solid round Tuesday, Chou is in line for her first collegiate top-10 finish.
“Yi-Tsen is hitting the ball well,” head coach Erin O’Neil said. “The main thing she needs to do (Tuesday) is put herself in good position on the greens which will help improve her putting.”
Junior Pitsinee Winyarat improved her score by an impressive 11 strokes between the first and second rounds. Winyarat shot an 84 Sunday that landed her in a tie for 77th place. She shot a 73 Monday which improved her place on the leaderboard into a tie for 45th. Winyarat finished Monday’s round strong with a 2-under on her second nine with a pair of birdies and seven holes at even par.
“(Winyarat) had a great comeback (Monday),” O’Neil said. “She made some adjustments to her mental game and it paid off.”
As for the rest of the Jayhawks, Annika Cedo shot a 6-over 78 which put her in a tie for 49th place. Ariadna Fonseca Diaz shot a 10-over 82 and is tied for 60th, while Victoria Chandra also shot an 82, and is in a tie for 75th place. Kallie Gonzales shot an 11-over 83.
“As a team, we gave too many shots away around the greens which led to double bogies,” O’Neil said. “We can do a better job of hitting the fairway which will put us in a better position to hit more greens in regulation.”
Florida State remains at the top of the leaderboard for the second-straight day after shooting a combined 593 over the first two rounds.
The tournament concludes Tuesday with a 9:30 a.m., shotgun start.
