FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

The California Golden Bear women's golf team finished the first round of the Mason Rudolph Women's Championship in a tie for second place with a score of nine-under-par.

The Bears, playing at the par-72 6,281 yard Vanderbilt Legends Course in Franklin, Tenn., took advantage of beautiful, sunny conditions to score a nine-under 279 as a team. The Bears tied with Purdue for second place with both teams just a single stroke behind day one leading LSU.

All four of Cal's scoring players had scores at or below par. Senior Pia Halbig had the team's low round, carding a four-under 68, tying for fifth place. Halbig had six birdies on the day, five of them coming on par-4 holes.

Freshman Nicola Rössler, in her first collegiate round, shot a three-under 69, putting her in a tie for tenth. Rössler had an eagle on the par-5 number seven hole, the first eagle of the season for a Cal golfer. She also birdied one and sixteen.

Junior Daniela Holmqvist, coming off a top-ten finish last week in Colorado, logged a one-under 70. Holmqvist had five birdies including getting them back-to-back on the four and five. Junior Joanne Lee, playing her first round of Cal's 2010-11 season, posted an even-par 72. Freshman Joi Penten was at +3 (75). Both Lee and Pentin had a pair of birdies.

The second round of the 54-hole tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25 with the action wrapping up with a final round on Sunday, Sept. 26. Cal, who started on the tenth tees on Friday, will tee off starting on the first hole on Saturday with tee times beginning at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. Live Scoring will be available through Golfstat.
