After the first 18 holes of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Golf Championship, Olivia Mehaffey is inside the top 10 and the leading player for Arizona State (Sun Devils) who sit in 16th overall on the team standings.
“We really had a difficult front nine today,” said Sun Devils head coach Missy Farr-Kaye. “We played with a lot more confidence on the back nine. We are a young team and are learning more about ourselves every day. I believe in this team and I know they are capable of playing some great golf.”
Mehaffey is currently tied for seventh overall after birdieing five holes including three of six holes between 10 and 15 in her one under par 71 while fellow Irish player Julie McCarthy is in a tie for 46th place after a four over 76, with her Auburn State team in 10th in the team standings.
