    NAPA, Calif. – University of Colorado junior Esther Lee shot a 4-under par, 68 here in the final round of the Silverado Showdown on Tuesday, leading the Buffaloes to a fourth place finish.

    The Buffaloes recorded a 292 or 4-over par in the finale, matching Pepperdine and Ohio State for the best team score of the day, and posted a combined 19-over par, 883 overall score for the event. Colorado was second among the 18-team field in total pars—notching 179 on the 6,206-yard, par 72 Silverado Resort North Course.

    Stanford, who led wire-to-wire, finished at 1-over par (865) to win the event by 13 strokes over second-place finisher Oregon. The Ducks, tournament co-hosts with CU, shot 878 as a team. Pepperdine earned the third place spot with an 880 or 16-over par performance, three strokes ahead of the Buffs in fourth while Ohio State rounded out the top five at 21-over par (885).

    The Buffaloes leave California and will head straight to Arizona as they are set to compete in the Arizona State Invitational this weekend—April 8-10. Colorado then has a week off to prepare for the Pac-12 Championships, slated for April 18-20 in Pleasanton, Calif.

    Congrats to women's golf on another good tournament, as they finish behind only one team rated behind them, while they finish ahead of 3 teams rated ahead of them! Also got to love they tied for low final team round, so they finished strong. (Per the leaderboard, whatever ratings Golfstats uses or calculates, the Buffs were #32, so assume this performance will improve their rating a little.)

    Congrats to Ms. Lee individually also, who's 68 the final round was the lowest score the final round by 2 strokes.

    Note- looked quick at the Golfstat rankings, and WOW is the Pac 12 tough in this sport! Looked like EIGHT Pac teams are in the Top 19, led by the LA schools at 2 & 3.
