SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Allysha Mae Mateo and Alexa Udom sit in the top-25 after the opening 36 holes of the San Diego State Classic at the Farms Golf Club on Monday as BYU sits in ninth.
“The Farms Golf Club is a really difficult golf course that got the best of us today,” said BYU head coach Carrie Roberts. “We struggled throughout the first round and didn’t respond as we hoped. We’ll get back to work and figure out how to post a solid score tomorrow.”
Allysha Mae Mateo led the way for the Cougars on day one as she sits in a tie for 15th. The senior carded rounds of 76-75—151 for a 7-over-par 36-hole total. Alexa Udom shot 79-75—154 on day one to secure a tie for 24th going into the final round tomorrow.
