Galdiano, Punahou way out in front at girls state golf
May 1, 2013 - Robert Collias
It appears everyone else is playing for second place — including 2012 MIL champion Marissa Uradomo and her Baldwin teammates — at the David S. Ishii Foundation state girls golf tournament that tees off for the final round before 7 this morning at the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course.
Uradomo, who is headed to Indiana State on a golf scholarship in the fall, is alone in third at 4-over 75. Baldwin is fifth, seven shots away from a second-place team trophy. A Maui High team that will return all four members next season is seventh, 10 strokes behind the Bears.
Punahou freshman Mariel Galdiano is ahead of Waiakea's Ciera Min by four shots after Galdiano was the only player to break par, with a 3-under 68 in no-wind, all-sweat conditions on the 6,700-yard layout. Galdiano, 14, qualified for the U.S. Women's Open two years ago as a 12-year-old.
How good is the Punahou team? They lead by 17 strokes, and defending state champion Kacie Komoto fired a 79 Tuesday, which is tied for ninth, but did not count for the Buffanblu's three-player 222 total.
The link to live team scoring is here. I can't find a way to get to the individual leaderboard.
Galdiano, Min, who will play at Gonzaga next in the fall, and Uradomo are the final group off today at 9:54 a.m.
Pick up today's paper for full first-round coverage. I will link my story on the roblog when it is posted later this morning.
