    Although the Ohio State team fell short in qualifying for Monday’s round of 15 teams, Buckeye Golf was not yet done for the season. Rio Watanabe completed her first three rounds in even par 216 strokes, which placed her in T-15th place. This qualified her to compete for the individual title.

    Rio began her round in her typical aggressive fashion birdieing 2 of her first 4 holes and finishing her front 9 score of -1, 36. However, she could not maintain her momentum and shot a +1, 36 to finish her 72 holes in even par for the tournament. This was good enough for 17th place overall, a very good showing.

    Rio played very well in the post-season (Big Ten Championships, NCAA Regionals and NCAA Championships). How well?

    • She was under par in 6 of her final 10 rounds.
    • For these post-season rounds, she averaged 71.4 strokes

    This was a clutch post-season performance. With nearly everyone returning next year, the 2016-2017 season will be fun.

    Go Buckeyes!
