It has been a couple of stellar weeks for the Arizona State women’s golf team.

First a victory at the Darius Rucker in South Carolina. And on the other side of the country (literally) the Sun Devils swept the victory circle in Hawaii at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational.

ASU shot 42-under 822, and while Ashley Menne claimed the individual title, both in record-breaking fashion. Missy Farr-Kaye’s team shattered the program record for 54-hole scoring vs. par by 17 strokes, eclipsing the previous mark of 25 under set in 2022. Menne, who finished at 14-under 202, now has the best 54-hole score vs. par in program history, breaking Brandie Burton’s 35-year-old record.

Patience Rhodes, who finished third, shot 11-under 205. Her 54-hole score is tied for the third best in program history. Also in the top five for the second time in her career was Beth Coulter at 9-under 207, placing fifth. Paula Schulz-Hanssen claimed sole possession of sixth at 8 under.

North Carolina and Washington tied for second at 17 under. Washington’s Camille Boyd finished a shot behind Menne at 13 under in the individual competition.

The 22-under 266 in the second round for ASU is tied for the sixth-lowest 18-hole score in NCAA history. Before Duke’s 24-under performance earlier in the week, it would’ve been tied for fifth.
