SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Aug. 30, 2014) -- Madchen Ly,
who plays on the Fresno State women's golf team,
opened the State Fair Women's Championship at
Bartley Cavanaugh G.C. with a spectacular round of
67 to take a one stroke lead over Elizabeth Schultz
(San Jose State, 68).
Ly birdied the 8th hole and shot 35 on the front
nine. She got red hot on the back, recording a string
of 4-straight birdies on Nos. 14-17. The rest of her
card was immaculate - not a single bogey. Easier
said then done.
Sagee Palavivatana, who plays for Sacramento
State, shot 71 and sits in third place in the 36 hole
event, while a group of 4 players is hanging out at
even par 72, looking for a hot round on Sunday.
Andrea Wong of UC Davis, who was medalist at the
California Women's Amateur (with an amazing 64)
shot 73 today and could also come up with a low
number on Sunday.
Almost the entire field in the championship flight
are sub-four handicap players currently competing
for area colleges. Lynne Cowan of Davis (an
AmateurGolf.com contributor) shot a solid 74. Cowan
will compete in the US Mid Amateur next week.
