Golfers
falter in
windy
Illinois
by Andy De Korte
Daily Sports Writer
Strong winds out of the North
bothered the Michigan women's
golf team's quest for a victory in
the Illini Spring Classic. The winds
that are typical for the Illinois
Orange course, coupled with rain,
stripped the Wolverines of another
opportunity to reach its spring goal
of a 320 tournament average.
If the Wolverines had shot a 960,
they would have prevailed by nine
shots over first-place Illinois, who
carded a 969. However, the Wol-
verines could shoot no better than a
327 over the weekend, and finished
fourth (336-327-333=996) in the
Illini Spring Classic. Northern
Illinois (972) and Illinois State
(989) also beat the Wolverines.
The weather proved to be a real
friend to Illinois because of the ex-
perience it has in the wind. Darcy
Chandler, who played the Orange
course four years earlier, was the
only Wolverine who had experience
at Illinois. Not having seen the
course made Friday's practice round
more important than normal. It was
only fitting that the rain delayed
the start of that round.
Commenting on the rain,
Michigan coach Sue LeClair said,
"The rain suits have gotten a real
workout this year."
Donning the Gore-Tex rain suits
for all 36 holes on Saturday, the
golfers did not retire them Sunday
for warmth. Although the rain
ceased, the golfers wore four layers
of clothing: a turtleneck, a vest, a
shirt, and a sweater, to combat the
25+ miles per hour wind and the 40-
degree weather.
"It was very cold and hard to not
get stiff," LeClair said, "but I still
expected them to shoot 80s. They
weren't real satisfied with their
performance and that is good to
know.

"Once again, our short game re-
ally bothered us. But the time of the
year had a large bearing on the per-
formance of the team," LeClair said.
A 79 by Becky Hayes and an 80
by Erica Zonder were the .best
Wolverine rounds of the tourna-
ment. The pair, who won Wolverine
medalist honors in seven of their
eight tournaments this year, took
different paths to their Wolverine-
best 247s.
Hayes carded a disappointing 86
in the first round before settling
down to her final round 79. LeClair
and Hayes had similar views on the
importance of her improvement.
"I pleased with my performance
on Sunday. I fixed something in my
stroke and I started to putt a lot
better," Hayes said. "It is really
important that everything came to-
gether, and I fully expect to break
80 all three rounds in the Big Tens."
Erica Zonder sandwiched her 80
between an 82 and an 85. "I played
pretty good, but I really didn't hit
good or putt good in the last
round," Zonder said.
Kristin Beilstein, the other
Wolverine to earn medalist honors
this season, was the most consistent
Wolverine, shooting 83-82-83=248.
