It is often a tired, cliché expression when a golfer says he or she expects to win every tournament, but for ISU women’s golfer Chonlada Chayanun, her results have nearly met her expectations.

“Every time I play a tournament, I have a feeling that I’m going to win the tournament or I’m going to play great this tournament,” Chayanun said.

Though she has only one victory from the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Feb. 17, she has led in all four spring tournaments and also has a runner-up finish to her name.

Below are scores and results from the senior’s best stretch of golf as a Cyclone:

– Feb. 10, UCF Challenge: T24 (67+69+81 = 217, +5)

– Feb. 17, Lady Puerto Rico Classic: 1 (66+69+74 = 209, -7)

– March 4, Hurricane Invitational: T6 (70+72+73 = 215, +3)

– March 21, Mountainview Collegiate: T2 (67+70+73 = 210, -6)
