    BOULDER – Junior Alexis Keating shot a program record 66 in the final round of the 2015 Pac-12 Championships here Wednesday at the Boulder Country Club and led the University of Colorado women’s golf team to a school best fifth place finish.

    As a team, the Buffs shot 1-under par (283) on the last day en route to an 868 (296-289-283) or 16-over par final score. CU was paired with top-ranked USC and defeated the Trojans by eight strokes. CU’s 1-under par 283 was one of only three subpar team rounds posted throughout the entire tournament. It’s the best round recorded at a conference tournament in school history and the fifth lowest round ever on record. Additionally, CU’s 54-hole total of 868 is the school’s best postseason performance and fifth best overall.

    “Our team played solid,” said Colorado head coach Anne Kelly. “Today I think was one of our best days ever. Everybody played solid and it was a real team effort. I just couldn’t be prouder of them.”
    ...
    Keating’s blistering final round 5-under par 66 matches a school record and is the lowest score recorded on a par 71 in program history. She tallied seven birdies on the day, which tied the school record for third most all-time in a single round. The Elma, Wash. native finished the meet with a 3-under par 210 and tied for fifth place overall, which is the fourth best individual finish in school history at a conference tournament.
    ...
    Sophomore Esther Lee secured her ninth top 15 finish this season in only 10 tournaments, tying for 12th place overall while posting a 2-over par 215, which is the school’s third best 54-hole score on a par 71. Lee, who became the first Buff named to the All-Pac-12 First Team, which the conference announced following the conclusion of the championship, shot an even-round 71 on Wednesday, which included four birdies and 10 pars.

    Notes:

    • Keating’s 210 is the second lowest score on a 54-hole, par 71, just four strokes behind the record 206, which was set earlier this season by Lee at the Bay Area Intercollegiate and her 210 sets the record for best 54-hole score in a conference tournament, breaking the previous record, 213 set by Jenny Coleman in 2013.
    • Keating shot 32 on the back nine, which ties the school record for second-lowest nine-hole score
    • Keating’s fifth place finish is just the sixth top five finish recorded by a Buff in a conference tournament in school history
    • CU’s final round 283 is second best in school history, just four strokes shy of the record 279 set at the 2012 NCAA Regionals, which the Buffs hosted at Colorado National

    Congrats to the Women's team for a great finish! Good luck at NCAA Regionals (I assume they're safe to be selected?) in a couple weeks.

    Next up golf-wise for the Buffs are the Men's Pac 12 championships in Pullman starting next Monday.
