No. 20 DU Moves Up One on Monday
Whyte, Weinstein and Newlove all shoot 76 in round two
Feb. 19, 2018
NEW ORLEANS - The University of Denver women's golf team bounced back on Monday at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship, moving up one spot on the team leaderboard. The Pioneers fired a 308 as a unit, seven strokes better than Sunday's opening round.
Par was 72 at the 6,239-yard course at the English Turn Golf & Country Club.
No. 14 Florida remained the leader in the clubhouse through 36 holes, holding off a hot 12th-ranked Southern California team by one stroke going into Tuesday.
"Today the wind was up and the course played more difficult," Kuhle said. "We got off to a great start on the back, which was our front nine at 7-over but struggled a bit finishing the round. Our execution was much better today and I feel our ladies were more committed to each shot. Proud of the way our top three players came back to shoot 76 and improve from yesterday's round.
"Mentally we were stronger and I believe we are gaining confidence on this course. One more day to improve and climb the leaderboard and play to take advantage of some birdie holes. If we can have really good course management and hit our approach shots to the correct spots around the hole, we'll have a very good successful day as a team."
Whyte climbed up 15 spots on the leaderboard on moving day, firing a 4-over in her round.
Weinstein also jumped up thanks to a 76 as well in her run through of the course in the second round, resulting in the sophomore being tied for 51st.
Newlove shook off a first-round 81 to card a 76 in round two.
Enright fired an 80 in her 18 holes of action.
Dreesbeimdieke posted an 83 for her day.
The final round of the tournament is set for Tuesday.
