There is an elite and exclusive club in the world of college golf where new members are rarely added.
The cost to enter? A once in a lifetime ride. Although no player even crossed the scoring threshold in the 50s, 15 male players signed for a 60, with Lindsey Wilson College’s Sebastian Sandin breaking into the group with a 10-under 60 during the second round of the Lindsey Wilson Invite on Monday. at The Pines at Lindsey Wilson in Columbia, Kentucky.
While no woman has ever signed for a 60 in an official college round, five have signed for a 61, most recently in 2020 courtesy of Denver’s Anna Zanusso at the Westbrook Invitational. Ole Miss’s Julia Johnson did the same in 2019 during Battle at the Beach. While at Gonzaga, Bianca Pagdanganan shot a 61 at the 2017 Pizza Hut Thunderbird Invitational. Prior to that, Colorado’s Esther Lee joined the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational club in 2016. Stanford’s Mariah Stackhouse recorded the first 61 women’s at the 2013 Peg Barnard Invitational.
