Kazakhstan’s Anna Streltsova carded rounds of 110, 113, 113 and 107 at the Asian Games women’s golf tournament, totaling plus-155 to finish 174 shots behind the winner in Incheon, South Korea, on Sunday.

Streltsova finished in last place out of 33 golfers (leaderboard here). The woman directly above her in the standings was countrywoman Inna Khegay, who fired 106, 111, 106 and 112 for plus-147. In all, five women finished more than 100 shots over par after 72 holes.

Golf returns to the Olympics for the first time in 112 years in Rio de Janeiro in two years.

The women’s field will include 60 players, with no more than four players per nation ranked in the top 15 in the world and two players per nation if it must reach outside the top 15 until the field is filled.

Kazakhstan has no players in the current Rolex Rankings that will be used to determine the field.

If the Olympic women’s golf field took the current rankings, the U.S. entries would be top-ranked Stacy LewisMichelle WieLexi Thompson and Cristie KerrPaula Creamer, ranked No. 14, would not make the field, which will likely dig past No. 400 to fill out.
