Fort Collins, Colo.- Junior Genevieve Ling sits tied for second following the opening two rounds of the Ptarmigan Ram Classic, the Boise State women's golf team's first tournament of the 2015-16 season.
Ling recorded back-to-back rounds of 1-under-par 72 at the 6,318 yard Ptarmigan Country Club (142, -2). She sits one stroke back of Northern Colorado's Amanda Myers entering Tuesday's final round.
The Broncos stand at seventh in the team standings, having posted a 590 (292-298, +14) through two rounds. Boise State is six strokes back of Mountain West Conference foe San Jose State for fourth place, and 10 strokes back of tournament host and MW foe Colorado State.
"We got off to a great start today," head coach Nicole Bird said. "Sam and Gen made a lot of birdies in the opening 9 holes that gave us a good cushion. They all looked really confident and relaxed and all 5 players hit the ball super solid. We want to continue that tomorrow and improve on putting just a bit. That will help get a few more birdies for everyone and hopefully another solid round to finish."
Long Beach State sits atop the 17 team leaderboard with a 578 (291-287, +2).
Senior McKenzie Ford enters Tuesday's final round tied for 21st with scores of 73-74 (147, +3), while senior Samantha Martin is two strokes back of the top 25 with scores of 71-78 (149, +5).
