NCAA Golf – No.24 Oregon Ducks
An unlikely team has landed on top and it couldn’t be more exciting to watch. The Ducks don’t always land on our radar but when they do they do it in a spectacular fashion. Short of finishing the first 36-holes on day one due to darkness, the Ducks landed on top short of play being called off.
Kathleen Scavo had yet to finish her last three holes but she held the NCAA individual lead at 1-under in her second 18-holes. Petra Salko sat in third after finishing the second 18-holes at 2-over 146 on day one.
The lead slipped away with the darkness but the Ducks hung on to the second place finish over an NCAA packed field. The Ducks finished just four back of No.4 Stanford but ahead of No.16 Arizona State, No.5 UCLA, No.17 Northwestern and No.27 Washington!
That’s three higher-ranked NCAA teams that the Ducks beat in one of the best fields! Landing both Salko and Scavo in the top-10 individually with Salko at 2nd and Scavo at 8th. Lin landed within the top-20 at 18th to round in out for the Ducks. With 177 pars in the field and 25 birdies over the 54-holes.
