ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — After two rounds of play at the Branch Law Firm-Dick McGuire Invitational, the University of Iowa women’s golf team is in 13th place in a field of 16 teams. The Hawkeyes carded a team score of 622 (38). The University of New Mexico hosts the 54-hole tournament at the UNM Championship Course.

Freshman Jessie Sindlinger paced the Hawkeyes shooting a 147 (+1). Sindlinger’s score consisted of seven birdies on the day, leaving her in 11th place.

“The course played tough today with some rough and firm and fast greens,” said head coach Megan Menzel. “We struggled a bit with the conditions, but saw some great play from Jessie Sindlinger. She had great composure today and did a good job of playing one shot at a time.”

Junior Shelby Phillips and sophomore Briana Midkiff are tied for 62nd place, firing a 159 (+13).

Senior Karly Grouwinkel shot a 160 (+14) to tie for 69th place. Rounding out the Hawkeye lineup, Junior Nicole Rae carded a 161 (+15). Rae’s score ties her for 73rd.
