Isagawa shoots 76, tied for 7th at Pac-12 golf

April 27, 2012 - Robert Collias
It is championship season, a time Baldwin graduate Cassy Isagawa was born to shine in for the University of Oregon golf team.

She fired a 4-over 76 in the opening round of the Pac-12 Conference women's championships to stand in a tie for seventh place, five shots behind Airzona State's Giulia Molinaro.

Playing a loaded field, the 21st-ranked and seventh-seeded Ducks are fifth after the first of three rounds at 19-over par, just eight strokes off the lead and two behind second place.

Isagawa is currently ranked 11th in the nation by golfstat.com and ninth in the nation by golfweek.com.

If her recent results are any indication, Isagawa could be in position to make a run at her first title, which would be a big one. She fired a 67 in the final round of the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate last week to jump 20 spots, to a tie for fifth. A 1-under 143 finish over the final two rounds at Kapalua last month was three better than the field and moved her from 41st to eighth place after and opening 80.

Here is a preview story from the Eugene (Ore.) Register-Guard where Ducks coach Ria Scott had this to say about Isagawa:

“She’s really good at playing her own game, knowing her strengths, knowing her fade is her money shot,” Scott said of Isagawa. “She’s really good at buckling down, especially when it counts. The look in her eye changes when you tell her she needs to make a putt.”
