College golf notebook: Stanford women, Rose Zhang tally another win, Oklahoma men win in Hawaii

Rose Zhang has played in 14 college tournaments. She has won seven of them.

Zhang, the top women’s amateur in the world and sophomore at Stanford, added another trophy to her collection Wednesday, as she won the Pac-12 Preview in Hawaii at Nanea Golf Club. The No. 1 Cardinal also won their fourth tournament of the spring, including three stroke play wins and a match play victory against No. 2 Wake Forest at the Stephens Cup.

Zhang finished at 11-under 208, beating Oregon’s Ashleigh Park by three shots. It’s Zhang’s third victory this season, and she shot under par in all three rounds. The one tournament she didn’t win (Stephens Cup), she finished T-12.

Her third victory of the fall and seventh win of her career.

Congrats, Rose!

Rachel Heck, the 2021 NCAA individual champion, didn’t play for the defending national champions, but Stanford’s lineup is built with depth, and that showed in Hawaii. Freshman Megha Ganne finished at 4 under and T-7, Brooke Seay in 10th at 3 under and Sadie Englemann at even par and T-11.

In the team competition, Stanford bested Oregon by 10 shots. Arizona finished in third at 7 under, one shot behind the Ducks. Arizona State (5 under) and UCLA (2 over) rounded out the top five.

Arizona’s Gile Bite Starkute tallied a third-place finish individually at 7 under. UCLA’s Caroline Canales and Arizona State’s Ashley Menne tied for fourth at 6 under. USC sophomore Amari Avery finished T-7.

Oklahoma men victorious in Hawaii

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma men’s golf team picked up its first victory of the season in Hawaii, capturing the Ka’anapali Classic Collegiate at Ka’anapali Golf Course in Lahaina.

The Sooners shot 19 under in the final round, the lowest single-round score for any team in the event, to pull away from Clemson and win by 12 shots, finishing at 41-under 811.

Leading the Sooners was Jake Holbrook, Drew Goodman and Jase Summy. The trio each finished tied for fifth at 11-under 202. Holbrook and Goodman shot 5 under in the final round while Summy carded a 4 under score. Stephen Campbell Jr. shot 8 under and finished T-10 for the Sooners, as well. Patrick Welch finished T-17 at 6 under.

Death. Taxes. OU winning on Maui.
