WACO, Texas – Baylor’s No. 1 nationally-ranked women’s golf team returns to action at the ICON Invitational, which tees off Monday at Golf Club of Houston.

The Bears will take on a 15-team field in the two-day, 54-hole tournament played on a par-72, 6,392-yard course. Both days will be 8 a.m. CT shotgun starts, with teams continuing play for a second round on Monday.

The field includes 14 top-50 ranked teams, including six top-17 ranked programs. No. 1 BU takes on No. 3 LSU, No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 11 Kent State, No. 12 Houston, No. 17 Northwestern, No. 29 Texas Tech, No. 30 Michigan State, No. 33 Texas, No. 34 TCU, No. 36 North Texas, No. 39 Texas A&M, No. 42 Purdue, No. 50 Texas State and No. 62 SMU.

Baylor’s lineup is led by redshirt freshman Hannah Karg, who is coming off her career-first individual title at the Trinity Forest Invitational. She’s followed by Elodie Chapelet, who won the Cowgirl Classic in the fall. Freshmen Rosie Belsham and Britta Snyder are in the Nos. 3 and 4 spots, respectively. Gurleen Kaur, who won individual titles at each of the Bears’ first two 2020-21 tournaments, rounds out the lineup. Nina Lang and Diane Baillieux will compete as individuals.

Baylor claimed a 31-stroke victory at the Schooner Fall Classic and Kaur won the individual title. BU then followed with an 11-stroke victory at the Betsy Rawls Invitational, where Kaur again won medalist honors.
