Osland 2nd at California State Fair tourney
Kelowna's Megan Osland tuned up for the 2013-14 NCAA golf season with a strong performance at the California State Fair Women’s Golf Tournament in Sacramento, Calif.
Osland, a member of the Cal State University-San Jose Spartans women's golf team, carded a two-day score of 2-under par 142 over the weekend to finish second overall out of 89 players.
Osland, 20, finished third at the same tournament one year ago.
In a field which featured many Div. 1 players from schools such as Stanford, San Francisco, and California State University, Osland was pleased with her final result.
"I am happy that I was able to start off the season with a good finish at this tournament," Osland said.
After a one-over par 73 in the opening round, Osland carded the best round of the tournament on day 2 with a 3-under par 69.
Osland, who is headed into her third season of NCAA competition at San Jose, hopes to push her game to yet another level in 2013-14.
"For the upcoming NCAA I have high expectations for myself because I know that I can achieve big things," she said. "I have been working hard on my game and my swing over the summer in Kelowna with my swing coach Sean Richardson, so I am excited for what is to come this season. After playing in the NCAA national nhampionship at the end of last season, I definitely want to be back in that position with my team again by the end of this season too."
Osland and her Spartan teammates will be in Fort Collins, Colo., Sept. 9 and 10, for the first NCAA Div. 1 tournament of the season, followed by a trip to Vail, Colo. on Sept. 25 and 26.
