TULSA, Okla.—As a preseason Golf Digest college golfer to watch, junior Noemi Jimenez lived up to her billing, Wednesday, tying for second place at the 2013 Dale McNamara Fall Preview in Tulsa, Okla. The junior shot a three-round total of 4-under 206 for her fourth top-three finish of her career and eighth top-10 finish.

“Obviously, Noemi played extremely steady,” said head coach Melissa Luellen. “Whenever I would walk up to her she would state very clearly what shot she was going to hit. She was very clear and decisive.”

Through out the three-round tournament, Jimenez played incredibly consistent recording scores of 69, 69 and 68. In addition to the Fall Preview, the Tulsa Country Club will host the 2014 NCAA Championships and Jimenez’ understanding of the course will only help her come postseason.

Luellen is obviously sold on her golfer’s ability to go out and compete.

“Her putting is good, chipping is good and she hits it straight. She’s just a great competitor and a wonderful player.

As a team, the Sun Devils finished in seventh place with a three-round total of 19-over 859 (284-293-282). The ASU recorded its lowest round of the tournament on day three with Jimenez and senior Laura Blanco shooting under par. The field for the Fall Preview featured 15 teams ranked in the top-25 in the nation and eight of the top-10 ranked teams.

The course proved to be a great litmus test for the Sun Devils and Luellen was happy with the way the future NCAA Championship course played.

“I think the scores indicate that it’s scoreable if you use your head and have great course management,” said Luellen. “If you try to play too assertive and too aggressive in places you’ll get in trouble. It’s no cakewalk. It’s a great championship course.”

Next up, the Sun Devils compete in the Vanderbilt-hosted Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate, Sept. 20-22 in Franklin, Tenn.
