STANFORD, Calif. — Jennifer Koga shot a 5-over par round of 76 during the first round of the NCAA Stanford Regional on Monday at Stanford GC. Koga is tied for 46th with two rounds remaining in the tournament.

Competing as one of six individuals in the field, Koga opened her round with a par on No. 1 before bogeys on the par-4 second and par-3 third moved her to 2-over. She parred her next four holes and made the turn at 3-over with a bogey on the par-3 eighth and a par on No. 9.

The sophomore parred the first three holes on the back side of the course to remain at 3-over. She then bogeyed the par-4 13th and birdied the par-3 14th to stay at that number. Three consecutive bogeys on Nos. 15-17 came before a birdie on the par-4 18th.

The 12-team field is led by 14th-ranked LSU which finished the first round at 5-under. The Tigers are trailed by #12 USC (4-under) and top-ranked Stanford (1-under) in the top three. The top four teams and the next two individuals from non-advancing schools will move on to the NCAA Div. I Championships in Scottsdale, Ariz.

LSU Latanna Stone holds the individual lead with a first round score of 67. Iowa State’s Ruby Chou is second at 68 while five others shot 69.
