By Kyle Faraday

Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona women's golf team finished a disappointing fourth this weekend at the PING/ASU Invitational in Tempe.

The Wildcats held a three-stroke lead entering the third and final round on Sunday, but posted a team total of 299 (+11) to fall into a fourth-place tie with Stanford.

Southern California carded a three-day total of 889 to win the tournament, four strokes ahead of Arizona State, the host school. Texas Christian finished third with a team score of 895.

Freshman Lorena Ochoa led Arizona in scoring, finishing the tournament in a tie for third place at 218 (+2). Ochoa was also holding the individual lead entering the final round of play, but was not exempt from Sunday's collapse. She posted a 75 (+3) and finished two strokes off the pace of Stanford's Stephanie Keever, who carded a final-round of 69 to finish at 216 (E).

Also scoring for the Wildcats was freshman Natalie Gulbis with a 225 (+9), sophomore Laura Myerscough at 227 (+11), and junior Cristina Baena at 230 (+14). No UA player shot better than a 73 in the final round.
