Chen 65 Leads USC At Stanford Intercollegiate 2nd Round

    Oct. 18, 2014


    Senior Doris Chen fired her best round as a Trojan with a 6-under 65 to lead No. 6 USC into third after the second round of the Stanford Intercollegiate at the Stanford (Calif.) G.C. on Saturday (Oct. 18).

    The Trojans, the two-time defending champions of the event, moved up from a tie for fourth after the first round and are now 5-under-563 (284-279) and are three back of first-place UCLA, one behind second-place host Stanford.

    Chen, the 2014 NCAA individual champion, had carded numerous 67s in her career, including at this event as a sophomore. But she hadn't put together as clean a round as today with a 2-under front 9 and a 4-under back, totaling six birdies without a bogey. She is now 4-under 138 (73-65), two off the lead.

    Sophomore Karen Chung moved up the leader board and is now tied for 12th at 1-under 141 (72-69) after a 2-under second round. She had four birdies on the day, including four between 7 and 11.

    Junior Kyung Kim is tied for 20th at even 142 (70-72), junior Annie Park is tied for 32nd at 2-over 144 (71-73) and sophomore Gabriella Then is tied for 46th at 4-over 46 (71-75).

    Action concludes Sunday.
