AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State women’s golf team remained focused during the week preparing for the 2013 NCAA Central Regional, May 9-11 at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman, Okla.

The Cyclones, ranked 22nd nationally by Golfweek, are making their fourth-straight NCAA Regional appearance and still looking for their first spot in the NCAA finals. ISU has been close a couple of times, falling five shots shy from advancing in 2010 and 2011.

This year’s NCAA Championship will be contested at the University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga., May 21-24. The top eight teams in each of the three regionals will advance on to the NCAA finals, and if the Cyclones want to get there, they will no doubt need strong play from their senior star Punpaka Phuntumabamrung.

A native of Bangkok, Thailand, Phuntumabamrung is having an outstanding final season with the Cyclones, posting the lowest single-season stroke average (74.2) in school history and leading the team with four top-10 finishes.

The runner-up medalist at the 2013 Big 12 Championship, Phuntumabamrung will be playing in her fourth NCAA Regional (2010-13), equaling the school mark for most regional appearances with former LPGA Tour star Beth Bader (1993-96).

She has familiarity with the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club, tying for seventh at the 2010 Big 12 Championship there as a freshman in the first of her three career top-10 finishes at the Big 12 meet.

There’s more to the Cyclones than Phuntumabamrung, however. ISU’s top-five have stroke averages ranging from 74.2-75.6. All five are currently ranked in the nation’s top-200 according to Golfweek, led by Phuntumabamrung at No. 78.
