Baylor WG’s Lonardi tied for 46th at NCAA Bryan Regional

BRYAN, Texas – Baylor women’s golf senior Laura Lonardi shot 3-over 75 in Thursday’s first round of the NCAA Bryan Regional at The Traditions Golf Club. Lonardi, who is competing as an individual, is tied for 46th place in the 96-player field.

Lonardi began her round with a double bogey on No. 1, but she got one stroke back with a birdie on No. 3 and then made five straight pars to sit at 1-over through eight holes. She made bogeys on No. 9, No. 12 and No. 17, along with a birdie on No. 14 and pars the rest of the way to finish the day at 3-over. 

Lonardi is currently fourth among the six players competing as individuals and five strokes back of the current cut of 2-under 70.
