Hawkeyes place Ninth at Lady Buckeye Invitational


The Iowa women’s golf team finished ninth after 72 holes of play in the Lady Buckeye Invitational on April 18-Sunday. The team competed on the Scarlet Course at the Ohio State.

The team scored 306, 302, and 318, leaving the Hawks 8 strokes behind Michigan. 

Freshman Jessica Ip finished with the lowest Hawkeye score, posting 226 (plus-10) for the tournament and shooting 73, 73, and 80 placing her tied for 12th overall. 

Junior Amy Ihm ended with the second-lowest score for the team, shooting a 233 (plus-17). She tied for 35th. 

“Jessica Ip had a good tournament, and I think it will give her some good confidence going into Big Tens,” head coach Megan Menzel said.  “We struggled this week, but we learned a lot, and we will be ready for the conference tournament this weekend.”

The Hawkeyes will next be playing at the Big Ten Championships in Indianapolis at the Fort Golf Resort Friday through April 26.
