FORT WORTH, Texas – Baylor women’s golf made a day trip to Fort Worth to take on TCU in two rounds of match play Wednesday at Shady Oaks Country Club, and the Bears swept both matches with a 4-2 win in the morning, followed by a 5-1 victory in the afternoon.

Baylor claimed the afternoon match 5-1 with individual match wins from Nina Lang, Hannah Karg, Elodie Chapelet, Britta Snyder and Rosie Belsham. Lang won 6&5 over Trinity King, Karg defeated Lois Lau 6&5, Belsham claimed a 2-up victory of Sabrina Nguyen, Snyder won 2&1 against Sabrina Iqbal and Chapelet won 1-up against Jennie Park. BU’s only loss in the afternoon was by one hole, as TCU’s Greta Bruner defeated Diane Baillieux 1-up.

BU won 4-2 in the morning session, with wins from Snyder, Baillieux, Belsham and Lang. Baillieux won 7&6 against Valeria Pacheco, Lang won 2-up against Grace Do, Snyder claimed a 2-up victory against Jennie Park and Belsham won 1-up against Bruner. Chapelet lost her morning match to TCU’s Lau 1-up, and Karg lost 3&2 against TCU’s Nguyen.

Lang, Snyder and Belsham all went 2-0 on the day, while Baillieux, Chapelet and Karg split their matches 1-1. Combined, the Bears were 24 holes better than TCU on their way to the 9-3 record, winning the afternoon match by 16 holes and the morning match by eight holes.

QUOTE OF THE DAY 
“Our team gained some really valuable experience today, not only by playing match play, but also by playing a course we hadn’t seen before and playing as well as we did,” head coach Jay Goble said. “We fought for every hole and every shot we could out there. We don’t get many opportunities to play match play, and spending the whole day up here and playing as well as we did on a championship course, that was really exciting to see.”

WHAT'S NEXT 

Baylor next competes April 12-13 in the Houston Oaks Invitational at Golf Club at Houston Oaks, the Bears’ final tournament before postseason play. The 2021 Big 12 Championship is April 18-20 at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas.
