Clariss Guce Finishes First Round of NCAA Championship at Six-Over 76

TULSA, Okla. - CSUN senior Clariss opened the NCAA Championship Tuesday carding a first round six over-par 76 and is tied for 54th heading into round two on Wednesday at Tulsa Country Club.

The trio of players opened with 67 to lead the field while the Matador senior is right in the middle of the pack.

Guce opened on the first tee and after a bogey on the first hole went on to par the next four holes. But bogeys on the sixth and ninth holes dropped her to three-over at the turn. A bogey on No. 10 was countered by a birdie on the par-four 11th kept Guce at three-over through 13 holes but bogeys on three of the final four holes dropped her to six-over 76 for the day.

"It was a tough day with the wind," said Guce. "I ddn't play well and gave away too many shots on the green but learned a few things that could probably help for tomorrow."

Guce is scheduled to tee off round two at 10:45 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee.
