No. 14 Iowa State finished in 12th place at this week’s Stanford Intercollegiate with a three round card of 893.

The Cyclones used scores of 300, 294, and 299 to shoot 41 strokes over par and 46 strokes back of the tournament champion, No. 9 Stanford. Stanford carded an 854 to win the tournament and beat second place University of Southern California by seven strokes.

The Stanford Intercollegiate, hosted by Stanford University and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, had a field of 17 teams including nine that were included in the latest Golfweek top-25 rankings (No. 1 USC, No. 2 Georgia, No.3 Northwestern, No. 4 Arizona, No. 9 Stanford, No. 11 Arizona, No. 12 UCLA, No. 14 Iowa State and No. 21 Washington).

Iowa State was paced by freshman Parinda Phokan who tied for 33rd with a final round 73 that pushed her total to 220. A rare eagle on the 12th hole helped Chayanit Wangmahaporn shoot a 72, which was the Cyclones’ lowest score of the day. Celia Barquin tied for 61st with a tournament score of 227. It was the first time this fall the sophomore hadn’t finished in the top 10 in the individual standings of a tournament.

Bronte Law from UCLA topped the individual standings with a 205. Pepperdine’s Marissa Chow followed her with a three round total of 208.

This tournament was the final portion of Iowa State’s fall schedule.
