Making Her Mark

CU's Choi, a 2-time U.S. Women's Open qualifier, notches seventh top-5 finish of her college career

by Gary Baines - 10/2/2018

University of Colorado golfer Robyn Choi has qualified for the last two U.S. Women's Opens and has advanced to Stage II of this year's three-stage LPGA Tour Q-school, so it should come as no surprise that she's off to another strong start this college season.

After placing sixth in CU's season opener last month, the junior from Australia finished third out of 78 players on Tuesday in the Windy City Collegiate Championship in Wilmette, Ill.

Choi (left) shot rounds of 72-69-72 for a 3-under-par 213 total, which left her seven strokes behind Windy City champion Gabriela Ruffels of Southern California.

It was the seventh top-five individual finish of Choi's CU career.

The Buffs as a team placed ninth out of 14 teams in Illinois.

Also recording top-six finishes on Tuesday in local NCAA Division I golf were University of Northern Colorado teammates Nicole Polivchak and Beah Cruz.

Polivchak placed fifth and Cruz sixth in the Rose City Collegiate in Aurora, Ore. Polivchak checked in at 6-over-par 222 and Cruz at 223 as Courtney Vogel of Grand Canyon won with a 5-under 211 total.

As a team, UNC finished third in the 11-school field, four strokes behind winner Portland State.
