BYU golf: Garner, Cougars finish in second at Matador Invitational
Lea Garner and the BYU women's golf team both finished in second place at the Matador Invitational on Tuesday.
The Cougars finished at 59-over-par, trailing first place CSU Northridge by 36 strokes and five strokes ahead of third place Cal Poly.
"It was really windy today, but I thought the girls battled and we had a great finish," BYU women's golf coach Carrie Roberts said. "I'm encouraged with how we performed this week."
Garner's second place finish at 4-over-par included three third-round birdies and was four strokes behind first place. Her 72 in the second round was a team best for the tournament.
"Lea has a great mindset right now and has a lot of confidence," Roberts said. "She's been playing great and she knows she has a chance to win every week."
Freshman Alexandra White tied for 12th place to finish 14-over-par, while Annie Yang finished in 21st place at 18-over-par with four birdies on Tuesday. Selu Fotu finished in 28th at 23-over-par with an eagle on the 18th hole, and Maria Yacaman tied in 37th at 29-over-par.
BYU will travel to the Bandit Golf Course in Texas for the Jim West Challenge on Feb. 17-18.
