TEMPE, Ariz. – No. 10 Stanford put the finishing touches on its regular season Sunday with a seventh-place finish at the PING/Arizona State Invitational. Swinging alongside seven of the country’s top-10 programs among the 15-team field, the Cardinal shelved its 10th top-10 finish in as many events.
Four Cardinal finished in the top-50, led by 12th-place Casey Danielson (71-71-74). Lauren Kim (71-71-75) was one stroke behind Danielson to finish tied for 17th.
Tied for 27th was Mariah Stackhouse, who went 77-70-72 for 3-over. Mariko Tumangan (76-73-75) tied for 47th.
The event served as a final tune-up before the Pac-12 Conference Women’s Golf Championships (April 25-27) in Corvallis, Ore.
“We had one good day and two average days,” said Anne Walker, Stanford’s Margot and Mitch Milias Director of Women's Golf. Casey and Lauren were once again steady and consistent. We have some time before the Pac-12 Championships to practice and polish up our games.”
The three-day, 54-hole tournament at the par-72, 6,223-yard Karsten Golf Course was won with an 11-under by South Carolina (288-280-285). Washington, Duke and host Arizona State tied for second at 5-under. Arizona (+4) and UCLA (+8) finished ahead of Stanford (295-285-296), which totaled a 12-over.
Danielson’s birdie on three and bogey on nine left her at even-par until a double bogey on 18. She was even-par for the tournament. Kim was 3-over Sunday and 1-over for the event.
Stackhouse had two birdies and as many bogeys to finish at even-par in her third round.
Starting her round with bogeys on two and four, Tumangan put together birdies on three of the next six holes to move to 1-under. Four bogeys on the back nine left her at 3-over for the day and 8-over through three rounds.
Quirine Eijkenboom (86-86-76) was 10 strokes better Sunday than each of her two previous rounds.
Duke’s Celine Boutier won the tournament at 8-under, holding off a final-round 66 from second-place Noemi Jimenez of Arizona State for a one-stroke win.
