OPELIKA, ALA. – South Carolina senior women’s golfer Adrienne Gautreaux is in a tie for 18th place after finishing with a 1-over-par, 73 in the first round of play at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in Opelika, Ala. The 72-hole event is being contested at the par-72, 6,214-yard Grand National Lake Course.
Gautreaux is competing in the NCAA Championship for the third time in her career, but the first as an individual.
Gautreaux, a native of Mabank, Texas, began her opening round on the par-four tenth hole and carded a birdie on the par-five 12th hole, before finishing her outward nine with a 1-over-par 37. Following a bogey on the par-three third hole, Gautreaux bounced back with a birdie on the par-four sixth hole to finish her round at 1-over-par, 37-36-73. That total ties her with 15 other players in 18th place and is just four shots off the pace of individual leader Allison Hanna of Ohio State, who carded an opening-round score of 3-under-par, 36-33-69.
The NCAA Championship will continue on Wednesday with the second 18 holes of competition. Gautreaux will begin her second round on the first hole beginning at 2 p.m. Full tournament results and live scoring of the event are available at www.golfstatlive.com.
