THE RUNDOWN 
DALLAS – Baylor women’s golf remained perfect for the 2020-21 season by sweeping the team and individual titles at the Trinity Forest Invitational. BU shot 1-under-par 287 in Tuesday’s final round to claim a 13-shot victory, while redshirt freshman Hannah Karg shot a final-round 4-under 68 to win medalist honors by one stroke at 5-under 211.

The title was the Bears’ fourth in as many tournaments during the 2020-21 season, following the Schooner Fall Classic, the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational and the Cowgirl Classic. BU players have also won individual titles at all four events, with Gurleen Kaur winning at the Schooner and Longhorn, Elodie Chapelet winning at the Cowgirl and Karg winning at Trinity Forest.

Baylor (-1) claimed head-to-head victories over Oklahoma State (+15), Texas (+27), Kansas State (+39), Texas Tech (+40), SMU (+42), Tulsa (+43), UTSA (+44), Washington (+52), Nebraska (+52), BYU (+54), Chattanooga (+64), Memphis (+68) and Missouri State (+65).

Four Bears claimed top-10 individual finishes, led by Karg’s first-place result at 5-under 211. Freshman Rosie Belsham shot a final-round 1-over 73 to tie for third place at 3-over 219, while Chapelet joined her in third place after shooting 2-over 74 in the final round. Freshman Britta Snyder carded even-par 72 in the final round to tie for ninth place at 5-over 221, and Gurleen Kaur tied for 23rd place at 11-over 227.
