The Dallas Athletic Club proved to be too tough to tame for the ISU women’s golf team on day one of the Dallas Athletic Club/Southern Methodist Invitational.

With a 36-hole score of 606 (302+304), No. 31 Iowa State is tied for seventh place out of 16 teams with one round remaining.

The Cyclones trail leader No. 14 Oklahoma State by 27 shots. 

Junior Cajsa Persson led Iowa State with two rounds of two-over-par 74. She is tied for 13th place out of 84 golfers and is seven shots off the medalist pace set by Aurora Kan of Purdue.

Senior Chonlada Chayanun is tied for 22nd after rounds of 72 and 78.

Joining Chayanun in 22nd is freshman Nattapan Siritrai, who recorded rounds of 74 and 76.

In what has been her only trying collegiate tournament of her freshman campaign, Celia Barquin is tied for 67th after rounds of 86 and 76.

Up to this point on the season, Barquin has not finished worse than 31st and has not recorded a round over 77.

Also tied for 67th is freshman M.J. Kamin. She recorded rounds of 82 and 80.

Out of the six Big 12 teams competing this week, Iowa State is in fourth. The Big 12 Championship begins April 24.
