2011 Women's Golf Championship Central

The Texas Longhorns claimed the lead after the second round in the 2011 Big 12 Women's Golf Championship with a seven-over par 583 total at the par 72, 6,234-yard course at The Club at Old Hawthorne.

UT's combined score of 583 is the lowest after two rounds in the event's history. The Longhorns fired a one-under 287 in the second round after shooting a 296 on day one.

Iowa State climbed from seventh to second with a round two score of three-under par 285, a record for the lowest second round score in the Championship's history. ISU sits two strokes behind UT with a nine-over 585.

Texas A&M and Missouri are knotted in third place with 12-over par marks of 588.

Texas' Madison Pressel propelled the Longhorns as the sophomore shot a six-under par 66 on the day, including five birdies and an eagle, to finish with a Big 12 Championship record for the lowest individual score in a round. Her 66 is one stroke better than the previous record. On the front nine, she drained a birdie on holes 5, 7 and 8 with an eagle on hole 9, her second in as many days. She also recorded birdies on holes 14 and 17. Her two-day total is seven-under par for a total of 196. Both of her eagles in the event have come on par fives.

Six golfers hold a tie for second with one-under scores of 143. Nebraska's Mary Kate Bird and Iowa State's Prima Thammaraks jumped from 15th with a round two three-under par score of 69, while round one leader Deborah DeVilla (Texas Tech) finished the day even at 72. Jaclyn Jansen (Baylor), Katerina Ruzickova (Texas A&M) and Jessica Wallace (Colorado) also sit tied for second. Wallace shot the fourth-best score of the day with a two-under 73.

Due to additional inclement weather forecasted for Sunday afternoon in Columbia, the format of the final round has been adjusted to an 8 a.m. CT shotgun start. The awards ceremony will follow the final round.
