Isagawa wins second college title, Ducks finish second
September 22, 2013 - Robert Collias
Cassy Isgawa told me last month at the Maui Open that winning was on her mind for her junior season with the University of Oregon women's golf team.
It took her precisely two tournaments to get that done this season. She won by six strokes in a good field on Saturday, while leading the Ducks to second place in the Dick McGuire Invitational in New Mexico — on a course she had never played before this week.
Isagawa is simply the best women's golfer ever to play for Oregon — her first two seasons have generated the top two scoring averages in school history — and is a two-time All-Pac-12 selection, and was a first-team All-American as a freshman.
Last season, after Oregon wilted down the stretch at regionals and just missed the NCAA tournament the year before, Isagawa led the Ducks to a rare appearance at nationals, where she tied for 23rd.
I know Cassy pretty well — team is always first for her, be it for Baldwin, where she graduated from in 2011, the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team, or now Oregon — and my bet is this is just the beginning, a victory that could lead to many more.
She is that good — and just starting to realize it.
