Oklahoma women’s golf opened the Magnolia Invitational with a 1-over 289 on Sunday in Starkville, Miss. The Sooners are tied for third place and are just one stroke out of first place with two rounds remaining at the par-72, 6,320-yard Old Waverly Golf Club.
Mississippi State and Kennesaw State lead the event after each posting an even-par 288.
“We did a lot of good things on day one,” said OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell. “Old Waverly is a championship-style golf course and we need to stay committed to our game plan in the next two rounds. We’re excited to get back out there and continue competing tomorrow.”
The Sooners were led by freshman Libby Winans and sophomore Kaitlin Milligann, who combined to card eight birdies and each finish with a 71 (-1). The pair is tied for third place, three strokes behind leader Kathleen Gallagher (68, -4) from LSU.
Sophomore Hannah Lee shot an even 72 to finish the round tied in 12th place. Sophomore Sydney Youngblood carded a 75 (+3) and is tied for 33rd while freshman Mikhaela Fortuna is in 45th with a 77 (+5).
