Women’s golf set for the season opener at Cougar Classic



Charleston, South Carolina – The Baylor Women’s Golf Team will open its long-awaited season Monday morning at the Cougar Classic at the Yemans Hall Club in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Bears are one of seven teams on the pitch that finished in the top twenty-five last season.

Jay Goble is entering his 11th season leading the women’s golf program and is excited to start this season in the Lowcountry.

“I am delighted that the team is starting in Charleston,” he said. “This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year and I know the team loves it very much too. The golf course is amazing.”

Britta Snyder will lead things for the Bears in 2021-22 from first place after a season where she played in all twelve events with a 21-round team at par or better.

Guleen Kaur, 5th year senior, just completed a year leading the team on average by stroke (71.97). Kaur also competed in the Augusta Women’s in April and qualified for the US Women’s Open at the Olympic Club.

Rookie Antonia Matte will make her college debut in third place. Goble loves what he’s seen from the first year and expects Matte to be a key contributor throughout the season.

“She’s playing a really consistent game that you can already tell is going to travel well,” he said. “She’s going to be able to play good golf on a lot of different golf courses.”

Baylor will complete the roster with a lot of experience with junior Hannah Karg in fourth place and second year Rosie Belsham in fifth place.

Baylor will start at 8:30 am Monday and will play 36 holes. The tournament will end on Tuesday with 18 holes starting at 8.45am.
