Feb. 28, 2017

Final Results

Genevieve Ling birdied her first hole of the day and didn’t look back as she stormed up the leaderboard and tied for 15th place at the Gold Rush in Seal Beach, Calif., at the Old Ranch Country Club. The senior finished the tournament at 7-over (77-74-72 = 223) and improved with each round.

Ling had just one hole to play this morning to complete her second round after yesterday’s action was suspended due to darkness, and the native of Selangor, Malaysia was able to birdie the par-5 sixth and finish the second 18 with a 2-over 74. She started the third round on the seventh hole and carded another birdie, setting the tone for a successful final round. Ling scattered three bogeys, three birdies and 12 pars over the course of the afternoon, finishing the tournament with an even-par 72.

The 15th-place performance is her second-consecutive top-25 finish and the 21st of her Bronco career.

Boise State (309-312-312 = 933) took 12th place in the team standings.

Dana Clary (77-74-80 = 231) finished at 15-over par and tied for 39th place. The senior’s 74 in the second round was her low score of the tournament, but she was unable to regain the momentum in the final 18 and settled for an 80.

Valentine Lacaze (77-84-79 = 240) fared well in the first and third rounds, finishing in a tie for 71st place. Lacaze was on track to go low in the third round after firing a 2-over 38 on the back side after starting on the ninth hole, but a 5-over 41 on the front side inhibited the complete round.

Adara Pauluhn and Jalayne Martinez both tied for 81st place. Pauluhn (78-81-86 = 245) enjoyed her best 18 on Monday morning, and Martinez (81-83-81 = 245) was just shy of keeping a round in the 70s.

The Broncos will have a quick turnaround as they will now head south and compete in the Red Rocks Invitational in Sedona, Ariz., at Oakcreek CC on Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5.
