The confusing science of golf

The science behind golf can be so convoluted that many refuse to acknowledge it, but get your head around technology and you can use it to your advantage and achieve astonishing results
Olivia Mehaffey was a star performer once again as the Sun Devil Women’s Golf team wrapped-up the 25th edition of the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge at Palos Verdes Golf Club.

Sun Devil senior Mehaffey (-5/208), was brilliant all tournament long, putting together three consecutive rounds under par on her way to an individual second-place finish. She continued her dominance of the Palos Verdes Golf Club, earning silver in a loaded field less than a year after capturing the 2019 Pac-12 Championship at the same location. For Mehaffey, it represents her 11th appearance in the Top-Five of an event and 20th Top-10 finish as a collegiate.

Not to be outdone, the performance of Alessandra Fanali was equally as spectacular. The sophomore shot the lowest round of the day (-5/66), making her way 22 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 12th. Not only was Fanali’s round a career-low, she carded one of only five 66’s in the tournament. It is already her sixth Top-15 finish and sixth round in the 60’s of her young career.
Arizona State continued to show improvement as the tournament progressed, lowering their score each day. The Maroon & Gold (-2/282) finished on a high note, putting together the third best round of the day by any team. Overall, the Sun Devils finished in fifth place in a field with eight of the Top-10 teams in the country and 12 members of the Top-25.
