Ihm Moves Up Leaderboard at NCAA Regional

Second Round Results

BRYAN, Texas — University of Iowa women’s golfer Amy Ihm moved seven spots up the leaderboard on day two of the NCAA Bryan Regional after firing a three-over-par 75 at Traditions Club in Bryan, Texas.

“Obviously today was not an ideal day,” said Ihm. “However, besides a few wedges, I struck the ball better today. I had a better start and made some huge putts throughout the round. Tomorrow’s game plan is to just have fun and see how low I can go.”

Ihm got things started early in her round, recording a birdie on No. 10 — her first hole of the day. The Hawkeye senior made the turn with a three-over-par 39 on the back nine.

Ihm — Iowa’s first NCAA Regional individual qualifier since the format was adopted (1993) — answered her front nine bogies after the turn, recording birdies on holes one, four, and eight, en route to an even-par 36.

The Peosta, Iowa, native owns a two-round total of 154 (+10) and is tied for 71st with 18 holes left to play.

Ihm tees off from hole No. 10 at 8:50 a.m. (CT) on Saturday for the final round of regional competition. Live scoring can be found at GolfStat.com.
