Hawkeyes Head West For Halloween

Oct. 23, 2007

Starting next Tuesday, the University of Iowa women’s golf team will be in Honolulu, HI, to participate in the Rainbow Invitational. After a practice round on Monday, the Hawkeyes will tee off with 36 holes Tuesday and finish with 18 holes Wednesday.

Outside of the Hawkeyes, 17 other institutions will send teams to participate in the invite: California, Central Arkansas, Colorado, Cal State-Northridge, Fresno State, Hawaii, New Mexico State, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, Santa Clara, TCU, UC-Irvine, UCLA, USC, and Washington State.

The course name is Kapolei, which has a par of 72 and yardage of 6,033.

Lineup will be determined at the site before Monday’s start.

On October 6, Iowa hosted the Hawkeye Intercollegiate and finished fourth out of 13 teams. UT-Chattanooga took first place. Junior Tyrette Metzendorf, who earlier this season broke a school-record for 18 holes, tied for fourth with a 227. Senior Jill Marcum also finished in the top 10, tying for sixth place (228).

“This is the strongest competition we will face all season. We’re still trying to find the right mix of players to go with for a lineup but we have to make some improvement in some areas, particularly the short game. It’s the last fall tournament for us and we would like to see some positive results.”
