ST. GEORGE, Utah — The University of Iowa women’s golf team took second in a 14-team field at the Entrada Classic Tuesday afternoon. The Hawkeyes posted a 286 on the final 18 holes at Snow Canyon Golf Course to finish with a 54-hole team score of 911 (+47; 299, 306, 306).
Brigham Young won the team race (+24; 888), while Boise State finished third (+53; 917).
“I’m really proud of the way we finished today,” said senior Amy Ihm. “It’s exciting taking second place realizing we didn’t even play our best golf. As usual we’ll learn from it and keep moving forward. Big things are ahead for the Hawkeyes.”
Ihm led the way for the Hawkeyes throughout the two-day tournament, tying for fourth place overall. The senior carded a 73 (+1) on the final 18 holes to finish with a total of 221 (+5). She made par on 12 holes and added birdies on holes one, eight, and 18 in the final round.
“My goal for the day was to keep it simple,” said Ihm. “I hit the ball off the tee really well and put myself in good positions to make birdies. Unfortunately, I didn’t make a lot of putts. I’m happy with how I finished, and I’m looking forward to having some fun and getting to work down in Florida with the team.”
Junior Jessie Sindlinger and sophomore Elisa Suarez tied for 17th. Sindlinger fired a 75 (+3) in the final round for a three-round total of 231 (+15). She posted an impressive 37 holes at or below par over the course of the tournament.
Suarez carded an 81 (+9) in the final round for a three-round total of 231 (+15). The sophomore made par on 10 holes and added a birdie on hole five in her final round.
Sophomore Jessica Ip tied for 23rd after firing a 77 (+5) in the final round for a three-round total of 233 (+17). Ip made par on 11 holes and recorded birdies on holes one and six in her final round.
Rounding out the Hawkeye squad was freshman Kristin Glesne. Glesne registered an 87 (+15) in the third round, tying for 53rd with a three round total 244 (+28).
Freshman Monkia Poomcharoen — competing as an individual — fired a final round 82 (+10) to tie for 21st. Her three-round total of 232 (+16) marks the lowest 54-hole score of her career.
