Boucher Slips to 83rd at NCAA Women's Golf Championships
May 21, 2003
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Kansas State junior Christine Boucher (pronounced boo-SHAY) was not able to make up any ground during the second round at the 2003 NCAA Championships Wednesday at the par-72, 6,300-yard Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex and slipped to 83rd with a 36-hole total of 19-over par 163.
The first K-State women ever to qualify for the Championships, Boucher carded a second-round score of 10-over 82 and had difficulty on many of the same holes as she did during Monday's opening round.
Teeing off on the back nine, Boucher doubled 11 before settling for bogeys on 12, 14 and 16 to make that turn at 5-over. The front nine was no kinder for the junior, who doubled the par-3 No. 5 hole for the second straight day. Bogeys on 3, 5 and 7 followed before she was able to save par on her final two holes of the day.
USC sits atop the team leader board at 32-over par 608. Oklahoma State's Annie Thurman is the individual leader with a two-round score of 3-over 147.
The third round of the 2003 NCAA Women's Golf Championships tees off from the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex at 8 a.m. on Thursday. Play concludes at the Championships on Friday with the fourth and final round.
