Weinstein Goes Low as Denver Surges into Lead at Golfweek Conference Challenge
Sophomore fires a 6-under 66 on moving day
Sept. 26, 2017
WOLCOTT, Colo. – The University of Denver women’s golf team took over the leaderboard on Tuesday behind a dominant performance from sophomore Mary Weinstein. The Highlands Ranch native’s great day was part of a 3-over performance that put the Pioneers into the lead through 36 holes of the Golfweek Conference Challenge.
Par for the 6,216-yard course was 72 on the Fazio Course.
DU holds a four-shot advantage over Arizona in the 18-team field.
“The girls played incredible today,” Lapa said. “We really fought hard. We got off to an amazing start and the girls were under par for a long time today. Mary played at another level and came up clutch today. I couldn’t be happier for her.
“Camille really improved today. I was excited to see her get off to a great start and the girls were all in it. Everyone played with heart today and that’s all a coach could ask for. The girls will play like it’s another round of golf tomorrow. I love that this team is so confident, and like I have said all year, this team is special.”
Weinstein’s terrific day on the course led to a 6-under 66 for the round, jumping the super sophomore into second place through two rounds. The score of 66 is the lowest by a Denver player since Jessica Carty did it back in the first round of the Ron Moore Women’s intercollegiate back in 2015.
Whyte wrapped up day two in a tie for 18th after posting a 3-over 75 for her round on the day.
Both Newlove and Dreesbeimdieke each closed out their day in a tie for 39th with a 36-hole total of 151 (7-over).
Enright really bounced back from a tough outing on Monday to shoot a 2-over 74 on Tuesday, jumping her up into a tie for 64th.
Round three is set for tomorrow.
