Baylor’s Lonardi tied for 19th at NCAA Women’s Golf Championship

EUGENE, Ore. – Baylor’s Laura Lonardi is tied for 19th place after shooting 1-under-par 71 in Friday’s first round at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship. The senior from Verona, Italy, is competing as an individual in the tournament, which is being played at Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore.

Lonardi began her round on the 10th tee on Friday afternoon. She made par on the 10th hole, then bogeyed No. 11 before stringing together four straight pars. A birdie on the 152-yard, par-3 16th hole got her back to even-par, but she bogeyed No. 18 to take the turn at 1-over-par.

Lonardi finished strong, making seven pars and two birdies over her final nine holes. She recorded a birdie on the 474-yard, par-5 seventh hole, and closed her round with another birdie on the 398-yard, par-4 ninth hole.

Saturday’s second round begins at 9:30 a.m. CT, and Lonardi will tee off from the first hole at 10:25 a.m. Following Sunday’s third round, the 24 teams and 12 individuals will be narrowed down to the top 15 teams and the top nine individuals whose teams weren’t in the top 15. Those 84 players will play a final round of stroke play on Monday to determine the NCAA Championship medalist. Lonardi is currently tied for eighth among players whose teams aren’t in the top 15 following the first round.

Lonardi is currently fifth among the 12 players competing only as individuals. She trails Purdue’s August Kim (-4), who is tied for the tournament lead, along with Wake Forest’s Jennifer Kupcho (-3), California’s Marianne Li (-2) and Louisville’s Olivia Cason (-2).
