    Feb. 9, 2015


    Junior Kyung Kim and freshman Amy Lee each carded 1-over 72s to lead the No. 6 USC women's golf team during the second round of the annual Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge on Monday (Feb. 9) at the Palos Verdes (Calif.) G.C.

    Meanwhile, juniors Kim Santiago and So Young Hwang, playing at the Matador Invitational hosted by Cal State Northridge, both finished in the top 7 Monday at Wood Ranch G.C.

    The Trojans, who began the day in third, six back of leader Baylor, moved to second place after an 8-over 292 left them at 11-over 579 for the tournament. The Trojans tied for the second-lowest round of the day, but lost ground to the red-hot Bears, who remained in first at 2-over 570.

    Kim is now tied for 10th at 2-over 144 (72-72), rallying from an early 3-over start to finish 2-under over the final 13 holes. Lee, who made her Trojan debut Sunday as a first-semester freshman, was even through 12 before finishing at 1-over.

    Sophomore Gabriella Then is tied for 20th at 5-over 147 (143-147) while sophomore Karen Chung is 24th at 6-over 148 (74-74). Sophomore Elizabeth Doty (79-75) and junior Victoria Morgan (76-78), playing individually, are tied for 61st at 12-over 154.

    Final round action begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday with a shotgun start.



    In Northridge, Santiago is tied for first at 3-over 147 (71-76) while Hwang is tied for seventh at 7-over 151 (75-76). Their final round is Tuesday.
