STILLWATER, Okla. - Purdue junior Aurora Kanfell to 65th place at the NCAA Women's Golf Central Regional Championships on Friday, hosted by Oklahoma State University at Karsten Creek Golf Club. Kan shot seven-over, 79 on the day, making a pair of birdies, but dropping strokes on seven of the 18 holes to enter the final day of the event with a steep hill to climb.
The second day started in rocky fashion for Kan as she bogied the 10th hole, but she bounced right back with a birdie on the 147-yard, par-three. Back-to-back pars kept her score at even, but another bogey came on No. 14 and a double bogey on No. 17 as Kan made the turn at three-over. More trouble came as Kan took to the front-nine as she made bogey on the second, third and fourth holes, and scored a second double bogey for the day, this time on No. 6. The Boilermaker junior managed to end the day on a high note, needing just four strokes to finish the par-five ninth hole, and close the day at 10-over for the tournament.
Kent State's Wad Phaewchimplee continued her hold on the individual lead, shooting one-over on the day to sit at six-under for the tournament, and owns a four-shot advantage on the field. UNLV's Dana Finkelstein is second at two-under, while five others are tied for third at one-under. UCLA has taken over the team lead at 12-over, 588, leading California by one stroke and Florida and Alabama by four strokes.
The final day of the tournament resumes tomorrow with NCAA Championship qualification on the line. The top-eight teams will advance to the national tournament in Tulsa, Okla., in addition to the top-two individuals not on a qualifying team.
