After winning its first two tournaments of the season, the UCLA women’s golf team finally had to settle for less, as the Stanford Cardinal blew away the field to take the Oregon State/Nike Invitational in Corvallis, Ore.

Stanford took a commanding 27-shot lead over UCLA into Tuesday’s final round and cruised to the win, shooting 898 for three rounds over the Par 72 Trysting Tree Golf Course. UCLA made up only two strokes, finishing at 918.

Andrea Baxter of Stanford won the individual title, shooting a two-over-par 218.

Jeong Min Park of UCLA continued her recent streak of good play by tying Stanford’s Jamille Jose and Arizona State’s Linda Ericsson for second at 221. In her last three tournaments, Park finished first, third and second.

Other UCLA finishers include Jennifer Choi (tied for 10th), Jenny Park (tied for 12th), Betty Chen (tied for 15th) and Kathy
Choi (tied for 33rd).
