GOLD CANYON, Ariz. - Sun Devil Women's Golf opened up the Spring portion of their 2023-24 season at the Match in the Desert on Monday.

Arizona State (-9/279) put together a terrific score on the way to finishing in third place, as all six Sun Devils made contributions in the return from break. Ashley Menne led the way with an outstanding performance, carding a 66 (-6) on her way to earning second place at the 34-golfer event. Five in Maroon & Gold registered rounds at or under par which helped ASU finish with its third-lowest team score of the season.

Menne was the best in entire field in both Par 4 and Par 5 scoring average, as she wasted no time making an impact in her final semester. Paula Schulz-Hanssen's 70 (-2) was the second-best score. She managed to flip a switch after the turn, going four-under over the final nine holes. That included an Eagle on the par-four 14th hole, which she completed in only two shots for her first Eagle of the season. Joining Schulz-Hanssen in enjoying a successful back-nine was Calynne Rosholt, who climbed back to even thanks to a four-under final half. Grace Summerhays (-1/71) was one of four Sun Devils to birdie the 18th hole as she started her Spring off in solid fashion.

QUOTABLES "We did some good things out there," Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye mentioned post-round. "It is a marathon, not a spring. We have a lot of golf ahead of us and there are some things we can work on. There were some great birdies down the stretch and we played 18 very well."

"Very happy to Ashley get off to a fast start during her final Spring," Coach Farr-Kaye added. "She played a great round of golf finishing in second-place with a 66. We will use these next couple of weeks to get ready for our next tournament at Palos Verdes."

UP NEXT Therese Hession Regional Challenge – Feb. 4-6 (Palos Verdes, CA) The former Northrup Grumman Regional Challenge was renamed in honor legendary women's golf coach Therese Hession in 2022. This will be Arizona State's first appearance in the event since 2020. The 29th edition of the event will be held at Palos Verdes Golf Club, a place Coach Farr-Kaye is very familiar with. Back in 2020, Olivia Mehaffey (-5/208) put together three consecutive rounds under par on her way to a second-place finish. She continued her dominance of the Palos Verdes Golf Club, earning silver in a loaded field less than a year after capturing the 2019 Pac-12 Championship at the same location. The Maroon & Gold (-2/282) finished on a high note, putting together the third best round of the final day. Overall, the Sun Devils finished in fifth place in a field with eight of the Top-10 teams in the country and 12 members of the Top-25.

ASU has won the Regional Challenge team title twice (2006, 2009) and has had an individual medalist four times (Juliana Murcia in 2009, Carlota Ciganda in 2011, Monica Vaughn in 2016, Olivia Mehaffey in 2018).

GOLD CANYON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — We have an update on a Gold Canyon couple whose home is literally caving in. Their insurance company says it won’t cover the problem. After our report aired, the company is taking a second look. Farmers Insurance sent a structural engineer to inspect Lynda Hammond’s and her husband’s home.

The couple’s house is falling in, due to what is believed to be a major structural mistake. “Since the ceiling is opened, we have discovered and been told by other experts that the beams are going in the wrong direction,” Hammond said. “They will not hold the weight that we have upstairs. And that has been the problem all along.”

In a previous On Your Side report, Hammond explained how the upper level of their home began to show signs of caving in. A golf ball illustrated how the floor has gradually sloped a few inches. And the flooring on their balcony is splintering because it’s starting to buckle.

To save the home from collapsing, a construction crew placed vertical beams in the garage to give more support. The couple submitted a claim to Farmers Insurance, but that claim was denied because Farmers’ policy says a collapse must be “sudden” and “complete” for it to be covered.

But the couple’s home is collapsing slowly, and that’s the sticking point. “Why else do we have insurance?” Hammond said. “We hire insurance companies to protect us, to give us peace of mind. And that’s what they should do here.”

Due to an on-the-job injury that forced her to walk away from her career in TV news, it’s extremely difficult for Hammond to leave the house. She says her home is more than a sanctuary. In fact, she refers to it as her “Fortress of Solitude.” “I want my house to be comfortable and cozy, which is why we bought it in the first place,” she said. “It’s kind of a bigger house, but it’s still a cozy, comforting place for me to be. And I want that back. I really do.”

Since On Your Side’s report, Hammond says she and her husband have heard from people across the country with words of support. While she appreciates their thoughts, she’s also thankful Farmers is taking a second look at their unusual problem. “I kind of feel like I’ve got to pray to God and and put my faith in God and know that eventually down the road it’s going to be fixed,” she said, “and hopefully it’s not going to be as bad as it looks right now. Because it does look bad.”

Plenty of questions remain here, starting with how could the house pass inspection if major support beams were installed incorrectly? We’re looking into that, and we’ll have more in a follow-up report.

When did you first decide to be a professional baseball player and why? I decided at a very young age I wanted to be an artist and play professional baseball. My first year in high school I was hooked. I had some natural ability and I worked very hard and loved every minute of it.

What is your favorite memory from playing for the Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres or New York Yankees? Cincinnati Reds favorite memory, there are so many, I guess when I was introduced alongside Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan and Dave Concepcion.

LPGA player marries caddie at Superstition Mountain Golf Club before LPGA returns to AZ

GOLD CANYON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — The LPGA is back in Arizona for the first time since 2019.

GOLD CANYON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — The LPGA is back in Arizona for the first time since 2019. Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club, which previously hosted the Tour from 2004-2008, is the site of the Drive On Championship. The course in Gold Canyon also hosted a wedding between a player and her caddie over the weekend. “We meant to get married earlier,” says Mina Harigae. “It just never happened. Couldn’t find the time to do it. Then out of the blue, we’re like, ‘Let’s go get married Saturday at Superstition on the patio.’”

It was an appropriate spot for the couple, rocking matching Air Jordan sneakers to tie the knot. Harigae met her beau, Travis Kreiter, at Superstition Mountain six years ago. She was the first LPGA honorary member at the Golf Club, and he was an assistant pro there. “He ended up taking my money,” Harigae laughs. “The first time I ever played with him.”

Harigae’s winning the money now. She finished second at the U.S. Women’s Open last summer and played on the Solheim Cup team the year prior. She’s come a long way since Arizona’s Family first interviewed her in 2020 when Harigae was playing the minor league Cactus Tour during the pandemic to make ends meet and try to find her game again. “It’s a total flip of my life. Yeah, things have drastically changed,” she says. “My play on the Cactus Tour definitely helped propel me because I was able to shoot the scores I was shooting without feeling like I was doing anything super extraordinary. I was just playing very well, and to be able to play that well for a pretty long period of time. I think that made me feel very comfortable with my game.”

Today, Harigae’s ranked Top 50 in the world. But she might be No. 1 regarding course knowledge for this week’s tournament at her home club. Asked how many rounds she’s played at Superstition Mountain in the last couple of years, Harigae replied, “I can’t even count. I mean, I pretty much played every day last week. So, hundreds. Yeah, hundreds and hundreds.”

As for whether or not the Drive On Championship counts as a honeymoon for the happy couple? “Um, no,” laughs Harigae. “I want an actual honeymoon. But I think it’s really cool to be playing here, like, a couple days later.”
