Baylor Women’s Golf Heads to ANNIKA Intercollegiate

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor women’s golf is headed to Eden Prairie, Minn. to play in the ANNIKA Intercollegiate Presented By 3M, which runs Sunday through Tuesday.

The 12-team field will play 54 holes of stroke play on the par-72, 6,288-yard course at Olympic Hills Golf Club. Eight of the 12 teams qualified for the 2017 NCAA Championship, including Baylor, Stanford, Furman, USC, Miami, South Carolina, Florida State and Texas. Arkansas, Georgia, Minnesota and UCLA are also in the ANNIKA Intercollegiate field.

Baylor’s lineup is led by sophomore Fiona Liddell, who is playing in the No. 1 spot for the first time in her collegiate career. Senior Amy Lee is at No. 2, followed by sophomore Cheerie Tan, senior Giovana Maymon and junior Maria Vesga. Tan is in the No. 3 spot for the second time in her career, and Maymon is playing in one of the top four spots for the first time since the 2016 Big 12 Championship.

Liddell is coming off a tie for 13th place at last week’s Schooner Fall Classic, including a school-record-tying 65 in the final round. Lee shot two rounds at even-par 71 and tied for 36th place, while Vesga joined Liddell and Lee in counting all three rounds toward the team score on her way to a tie for 47th place. Tan and Maymon tied for 68th place with each posting low rounds of 73.

BU is facing Miami, Florida State and Texas for the second time this season. BU placed behind all three teams at the Schooner Fall classic, trailing Miami by seven strokes, Florida State by 17 strokes and Texas by 19 strokes.

Sunday’s first round is set for tee times from the first and 10th holes beginning at 9 a.m. CT. Baylor players are paired with golfers from USC and Minnesota. Vesga is up first at 9:50 a.m., and she’ll be followed in 10-minute intervals by Maymon, Tan, Lee and Liddell, respectively.
