WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Oklahoma State was declared champion of The Landfall Tradition women's golf tournament early Sunday after Hurricane Sandy dumped heavy rain overnight on the Country Club of Landfall's Jack Nicklaus course.
The No. 14 Purdue women's golf team was awarded a tie for third as the tournament standings were based on just the first round results. Senior Kishi Sinha was the Boilermakers' top individual, tying for third with 71 on the first day.
The 17 teams and five individuals enjoyed good weather during Friday's opening round before running into Sandy's rains and high winds yesterday and completing 9 to 12 holes in difficult conditions. The field was hoping to complete the second round early Sunday, but conditions warranted otherwise.
As a result, OSU finishes with a 293 score, one stroke in front of Duke and two strokes ahead of Purdue and Texas Tech.
Texas Tech senior Kim Kaufman was the medalist with a five-under-par 67 in the first round, matching the tournament record for opening round score.
Last season, the Boilermakers won The Landfall Tradition team title, their second in the event, and Paula Reto was the individual medalist.
Purdue has wrapped up its fall season and will resume competition when it hosts the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Feb. 10 to 12 in Rio Grande, P.R.
