Five Toledo women’s golfers are off to good starts to their summer golf season, highlighted by four first-place finishes and junior Pinyada Kuvanun qualifying for the 2017 Summer Universiade.

A 2016-17 second-team All-Mid-American Conference honoree, Kuvanun posted rounds of 70-71-72-72 to earn the right to represent Thailand in the tournament being held Aug. 19-30 in Taipei, Taiwan. Kuvanan also placed second among amateurs at the Singha Phuket Open with rounds of 73-72-70.

Junior Pinyada Kuvanun has qualified for the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei, Taiwan.

Another second-team All-MAC recipient, junior Pimchanok Kawil, has notched first-place showings at a Thailand Golf Association event (73-74) and the Chiang Mai Team Qualifier (73-67).

Toledo’s remaining first-place finishes came from junior Natcha Daengpiem at the A-Class Open (73-76) and sophomore Saranlak Tumfong at a Thai LPGA Qualifier (72).

“I’m very excited with the results we are having on the golf course,” Head Women’s Golf Coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. “Our team is working very hard, and I can’t wait to see what the fall looks like for our team.”

Toledo will open its 2017-18 campaign at Ball State’s Cardinal Classic on Monday-Tuesday, Sept. 18-19.
