University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa women’s golfer Mayumi Umezu placed third at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational following the final round on October 26.
The sophomore shot 5-under 67 at the Kapolei Golf Club to finish the three-day tournament at 4-under 212. The third place finish was the best of her collegiate career and her 212 total was also her 54-hole low. Umezu carded six birdies in her final 18, including a stretch of three straight on her front nine to post the tournament’s best score of the day.
Hyeonji Kang birdied her final three holes to finish with a 2-under 70 and solo fifth place at 2-under 214 for the tournament and her career 54-hole low.
Freshman Wendy Song also shot 70, a new single round season-low, to finish in a tie for 35th place at 228. Also competing for the Rainbow Wahine were Monica Johnson (233, t-49th) and Kralyn Salazar (265, 78th). Focus Jonglikit (236, t-61st) and Ting-Yu Liu (252, 75th) competed as individuals.
