OSU finished the first round 8-over par 288 and in a tie for eighth place thanks to Broze’s opening round. The senior knocked in five birdies to help her score 1-under par 71. She’ll enter Monday’s second round in a tie for ninth place and just five strokes behind UCF’s Kaeli Jones for the lead.
Right behind Broze is freshman Stephanie Astrup, who is tied for 20th place at 1-over 73, which is three strokes shy of tying her career lowest round as a Cowgirl of 70 at the Stanford Intercollegiate.
