Wangmahaporn Ties School Record At UCF Challenge

Iowa State University

ORLANDO, Fla. – Iowa State sophomore Chayanit Wangmahaporn tied the school’s 54-hole scoring record with a 209 at the UCF Challenge this afternoon. Wangmahaporn, who fired rounds of 68-71-70 to go 7-under in the tournament, tied for fifth in the medalist race to pace the Cyclones. 

As a team, the Cyclones finished 11th at the par-72 Eagle Creek Golf Club. The Cyclones carded a final-round 299 for an 873 total. Clemson and Miami tied for the tournament title at 850.

The 17-team field consisted of 10 teams currently ranked in the Golfstat top-50.

Wangmahaporn’s performance was the fifth top-10 finish of her career and her opening-round 68 tied for the lowest 18-hole round of her career. Her 209 equals the school record previously set by Chonlada Chayanun (209 at the 2015 Lady Puerto Rico Classic). 

Celia Barquin (70-72-75=217) finished in a tie for 27th and Nattapan Siritrai (76-70-77=223) tied for 62nd. Siritrai’s second-round 70 was her lowest 18-hole mark of the season.

The Cyclones will be back on the links in San Juan, Puerto Rico, at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic, Feb. 12-14.
