MAINEVILLE, Ohio (Purdue Sports) — The Purdue women’s golf team sits tied for fifth place after the first 18 holes of the 2018 Big Ten Championships, shooting five-over par, 293 at TPC River’s Bend. Junior Ida Ayu Indira Melati Putri paced the Boilermakers, shooting one-under par, 71, and sits tied for fifth in the individual standings.

The Boilermakers turn in their ninth team score in the last 11 rounds at five-over par or better, and made 14 birdies Friday, tied for second most in the field. Purdue is tied with Northwestern in fifth, sitting 10 strokes behind team leader Michigan State, which shot five-under par, 283, and is just four strokes out of third place.

Putri had a slow start Friday, playing the front nine at two-over par despite a birdie on No. 4. She came roaring back on the back nine, draining back-to-back birdies on No. 11 and No. 12, and sinking two more on No. 17 and No. 18 to close out her ninth round of the season at par or better.

Fellow junior Covadonga SanJuan came in just behind Putri, shooting even-par 72 with three birdies on the day. After a bogey on two she played the next nine holes at three-under par, including back-to-back birdies on No. 10 and No. 11. Senior Marta Martin and freshman Inez Wanamarta tied for the third and fourth team scores of the day at three-over par, 75. Martin was pretty consistent, making 13 pars on the day, while Wanamarta had to overcome a slow start and shot two-under par on the back nine to qualify a team score.

Ohio State’s Jaclyn Lee holds the individual lead at six-under par, 66, making a pair of eagles, while Michigan State’s Allyson Geer is one shot back at five-under, 67.

Play resumes Saturday at 10:24 a.m. ET, as the Boilermakers will play the second round with Northwestern and Illinois.
