The first day of play has concluded in Palo Alto, California, and Iowa State women’s golf is currently tied for ninth place with Oregon State. 

Leading the way for Iowa State is Taglao Jeeravivitaporn, who is tied for second overall with three others at four under par.

Karisa Chul-Ak-Sorn and Pimkwan Chookaew are also posting strong performances at one stroke over par to begin the event. This score is good enough for a tie for 30th place.

The players have put together a solid start to the three-day invite. In an interview with assistant coach Taylor Riggs, he stated that the team is focused on consistency to finish out the fall season.

“Looking to put together three strong rounds as a team,” Riggs said.

Finishing day one at one over par as a team puts the team within striking distance of the top spot with two days to play.
