ST. GEORGE, Utah — Kimberly Dinh, Kris Yoo and the University of Wisconsin women’s golf team began play Tuesday at the BYU Entrada Classic atop the leaderboard and ended there.

UW entered the final round with a nine-shot lead over Minnesota, but left no doubt by closing out the 54-hole tournament with an 11-over 299 through the final 18 holes to finish with a 24-over 888 and claim its second team title of the season.

The Badgers were boosted by Dinh and Yoo, who finished first and second, respectively.

Dinh, a sophomore, began the day leading Yoo by a stroke and didn’t relinquish the lead, carding two birdies during her final-round 74 to finish at even-par 216 and notch her first career individual title.

Yoo also fired a 74 to finish at 1-over 217 to earn the best finish of her career.

Lindsay Danielson gave UW three top-10 finishers; the senior tied for ninth with a 10-over 226. It was the second-best performance of the year for Danielson, who won the Hoosier Fall Invitational earlier this season.
