Indians golfer doesn’t advance

GIRLS’ GOLF: Burroughs sophomore Emily Tubert ends fine season at the Southern California championship tourney.

November 14, 2007|By Jeff Tully

BURBANK — Emily Tubert can find solace in the fact that she advanced farther in postseason competition this season than she did last year.

She can also take pride that she is the first Burroughs High female golfer to advance to the CIF-Women’s Southern California Golf Assn. Championship.

And she’s only a sophomore.

However, those accolades didn’t do much to take the sting out of the reality that Tubert wasn’t able to advance in the tournament Monday at the SCGA Golf Course in Murrieta.


Tubert shot a five-over-par 77, missing the cut of 74 and a chance to qualify for Thursday’s WSCGA-CIF Women’s State Championship at Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach. She finished in a 12-way tie for 20th place out of a field of 124.

It is the second straight season that Tubert has qualified for postseason play.

“I’m a little disappointed that I won’t be going on to Poppy Hills,” Tubert said. “But as far as I was able to go this season, having golfed for only two years, I am happy with what I’ve done this year. Plus, I’ll have two more years to try and make it [to state].”

While Tubert might have been discouraged with her performance, Burroughs Coach Mike Krose said the player should be delighted with her effort, not only in the tournament, but throughout the season.

“When you take into consideration that more than half the state of California was represented in the tournament, Emily did very well,” Krose said. “That was a very tough field and there were some very good scores.

“Emily was able to improve this season in both [postseason] tournaments. I’m sure she will continue to improve.”

Tubert had one birdie, coming on the par-three No. 10 hole. She also three-putted three times.

“I really didn’t putt all that well,” Tubert said. “I think I only made one putt all day. But I was able to chip in twice, and I was happy with that.”

The tournament winner was Jenny Shin of North Torrance, who fired a 68 to earn low-medalist honors.

“I was in the same group with Jenny, and I watched her win it,” Tubert said. “That was kind of fun.”

Only six players from non-qualifying teams earned a trip to state competition.

Torrance won the team competition with a combined score of 380.
