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

The Bears are one of seven teams in the field that finished in the top 25 last season.

Jay Goble is entering his 11th season at the top of the women’s golf program and he looks forward to starting this season in the Lowcountry.

“I’m excited about the team’s start in Charleston,” he said. “This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year and I know the team is enjoying it too. The golf course is fantastic.”

Britta Snyder will lead the Bears from number one in 2021-2022 in a season in which she played in all twelve events with a team lead of 21 rounds at par or better.

Fifth grader Guleen Kaur comes off a year in which she led the team on the stroke average (71.97). Kaur also competed in the Augusta Women’s in April and made it to the United States Women’s Open at the Olympic Club.

Freshman Antonia Matte will make her college debut in third place. Goble likes what he’s seen from the freshman and expects Matte to be an important contributor throughout the season.

“She plays a really consistent game that can be said to travel well,” he said. “She will be able to play good golf on many different golf courses.”

Baylor will round out the line-up with a lot of experience with junior Hannah Karg in fourth place and second Rosie Belsham in fifth place.

Baylor will tee off at 8:30 a.m. on Monday and will play 36 holes. The tournament ends on Tuesday with 18 holes from 8.45 a.m.
