Aztec Women's Golf Continues Busy Summer Schedule
Aug. 11, 2009
SAN DIEGO - While the summer may soon be coming to a close, members of the Aztec women's golf team remain busy competing both locally and abroad.
This past weekend, Aztec senior Petra Cole (San Diego, Calif.) tied for second place and junior Samantha Roberts (Carlsbad, Calif.) tied for eighth at the annual San Diego Women's City Amateur Championship. Cole had a two-stroke lead heading into the final round at the Torrey Pines South Course on Saturday, but couldn't hold on, as she logged a final day 82 to end up three strokes in back of winner Christy Fogerty. Cole finished the event with a 54-hole score of 235, while Roberts posted a 241, including a second-round 76.
Reigning Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, SDSU's Malin Enarsson (Gothenburg, Sweden), has continued to represent her home country of Sweden in a variety of tournaments throughout Europe. Later this month, Enarsson will be among just 138 golfers at the International European Ladies' Amateur Championship, Aug. 26-29, at Falsterbo Golf Course on the southern tip of Sweden. The championship will be decided by stroke play over four rounds of 18 holes each day. Only the top 60 golfers will advance to Saturday's final round.
Enarsson helped Sweden to a fifth-place finish at the European Amateur Ladies' Team Championship in Bled, Slovenia, July 7-11. She ended stroke play at 3-over-149 and posted a win on the second day of individual match play in the team's 3-2 victory versus Denmark.
Incoming freshman Christine Wong (Richmond, B.C.) has also been busy in her native Canada this summer, as she was fifth at last week's Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship in Hampton, New Brunswick. Wong will compete in the 2009 Canada Games, Aug. 25-28, on Prince Edward Island, before heading to campus for the start of the school year.
San Diego State begins its 2009 fall campaign next month, returning 10 golfers under first-year head coach Emilee Klein.
