Redshirt freshman Jinyu Wu finished day one of the 2022 Pac-12 Women’s Golf Championships tied for 9th place. After shooting a one-over 73 during the first round, she will now look to catch up to USC’s Brianna Navarrosa, who shot a 70 and sits at the top of the leaderboard.
The Pac-12 tournament this year is held at Eugene Country Club in Oregon. Wu is joined by seniors Darcy Habgood and Amy Chu, junior Jiye Ham, and freshman Madelyn Gamble for this tournament. These five make up a team that are currently tied for ninth with Arizona who also shoot a 17-over, 305 as a team. Stanford sits at the top of the team leaderboard after shooting a combined 290 after day one.
Originally from Shanghai, China, Wu began the day on the tenth hole and shot par for her first five holes before going bogey-birdie-birdie-bogey to finish out her first nine. She finished out her round with two more bogeys and a birdie to finish one-over.
There are currently five golfers who sit tied for ninth at 73, four are tied for fifth at 72, three tied for second with a 71, and Navarrosa atop the leaderboard with the 70.
Wu will tee off today at 10:41 am with Arizona’s Carolina Melgrati, who also shot a 73 Monday, and California’s Mika Jin who shot a 77 and is tied for 37th.
