The Idaho women’s golf team finished the San Diego State March Mayhem tournament with a win in the 13th place bracket.
In match play, players for each team faceoff in head-to-head competition with every hole accounting for a point. At the end of the round, the player who wins the most holes will provide their team with a single-point. All square means the round ended in a tie.
