Second Round 73 Moves Clariss Guce into Tie for 50th

TULSA, Okla. - CSUN's Clariss Guce carded a three over-par 73 on Wednesday in the second round of the NCAA Women's Golf Championship and moved into a tie for 50th with two rounds to play at Tulsa Country Club.

In tough, windy conditions on Tuesday, the CSUN senior opened with a six-over 76 and tied for 54th-place after 18 holes.

Guce was able to trim three strokes off her round Wednesday as she opened on the par-four, 10th hole. After finishing holes 10 through 18 at six-over on Tuesday, Guce played nearly error-free golf on Wednesday with a single bogey (No. 12) and a single birdie (No. 18) to go with seven pars.

She made the turn at even-par and remained there until bogeys on the third and fourth holes dropped her to two-over for the day. After a trio of pars, a bogey at No. 8, her second-to-last hole of the day dropped her to three-over for the day and nine-over for the championship at 149. The Matador senior's low score for 36 holes is 143 which she accomplished three times, most recetly at the Big West Championship.

"Things went a little better today but I still made plenty of bad decisions that put me in difficult spots," said Guce. "But I'll take it, it could have been a lot worse."

Guce will tee-off the third round Thursday morning at 8:25 a.m. off the first tee.
