Soo, Milligan off to solid starts for OU women in San Antonio

Oklahoma women’s golf is tied for fifth place after one round of action at the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational in San Antonio, Texas. The Sooners shot 296 (+7) at the par-72, 6,450-yard Briggs Ranch Golf Club.

Junior Julienne Soo carded a pair of eagles, finishing the round tied for fourth place. Soo shot a 2-under 70 and is four strokes out of first.

As a team, the Sooners are five strokes out of second place and 14 strokes behind first-place Arkansas, who entered the tournament ranked No. 1 in the nation.

“We played solid most of the day but struggled coming down the stretch,” said OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell. “If we focus on doing the little things better we’ll be in good shape the rest of the way.”

Freshman Kaitlin Milligan is tied for 16th, shooting a 73 (+1) in a round that featured three birdies. Senior Hannah Wood finished the day with a 75 (+3) and is tied for 29th.

Senior Ana Ruiz is tied in 46th with a 77 (+5) and freshman Hannah Lee is tied for 58th with a 79 (+7).

The Sooners begin the second round at 9:10 a.m. Monday, teeing off of hole No. 1 alongside golfers from Houston and host UTSA. Live scoring is available on BirdieFire.com.
