Baylor Women’s Golf Heads to Mason Rudolph Championship

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor women’s golf gets back to action on Friday at the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Vanderbilt Legends Golf Club in Franklin, Tenn.

The three-day, 54-hole event will be played on the 6,292-yard, par-72 North Course. Friday’s first round begins at 8:30 a.m. CT with players beginning from both the first and 10th tees.

The 15-team field features Baylor, Auburn, Alabama, Central Florida, Chattanooga, Houston, Michigan State, Middle Tennessee State, Northwestern, SMU, Troy, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Yale.

Baylor’s lineup is led by junior Amy Lee, who took ninth place while playing as an individual in the season-opening Dick McGuire Invitational. She’s followed by sophomore Maria Vesga, freshman Fiona Liddell, redshirt sophomore Dylan Kim and freshman Evelyn Arguelles. Senior Maggie Beth Byers will compete as an individual.

Vesga and Liddell are coming off ties for 11th place at the Dick McGuire Invite, while Kim tied for 17th place and Arguelles tied for 25th place, giving BU five top-25 finishers in the tournament. The Bears took third place in the 16-team field.

Arguelles has the team’s first tee time Friday, beginning from the 10th tee at 10:10 a.m. She’ll be followed in 10-minute intervals by Kim, Liddell, Vesga and Lee, respectively. Byers also begins from the 10th tee at 9:45 a.m. Players in the Baylor lineup are paired with golfers from Houston and Virginia, while Byers will play with Vanderbilt’s Antonia Scherer and Chattanooga’s Maddy McDaniel.

Baylor tied for 12th place in a 17-team field at last year’s Mason Rudolph Championship. Kim and Byers are Baylor’s only players returning to the tournament – Kim tied for 47th place at 8-over 224 and Byers tied for 60th at 11-over 227.
