Cowgirls move up 4 spots into 6th

The No. 16 Oklahoma State women’s golf moved up four spots on Tuesday in the second round of the NCAA Regional at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

The Cowgirls are in sixth at 4-over after recovering from a disappointing first round. OSU ended the day at 1-over 289 thanks to 14 birdies.

Strong performances from senior Emma Broze and junior Chih-Min Chen bolstered OSU. Broze finished with 3-under 69 to catapult 19 spots into a tie for fourth.

Chen followed Broze with a 1-under 71 to put her tied for 59th while tallying four birdies in her final seven holes.

Other Cowgirls in the field were senior Kenzie Niesen, who finished tied for 19th with a 2-over par. Freshman Stephanie Astrup is tied for 53rd, and senior Alexis Sadeghy is tied for 72nd after a 5-over day.

Wednesday is the final day of the NCAA Regional, and the low six teams and three individuals on teams not a part of the six at each of the four regional sites will move on to the NCAA Championships.  OSU hosts the championships on May 18-23 at Karsten Creek.

OSU tees off at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
