Minnesota will travel to the Lady Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio for the final tournament of the regular season. The 11-team field will compete at The Ohio State University Golf Club’s Scarlet course Saturday and Sunday. The event can be followed live at golfstat.com

Minnesota comes into the tournament playing its’ best golf of the season. The team has posted back-to-back season lows. At the last tournament, the Rebel Intercollegiate, the team broke the 900-stroke marking shooting a 899. Freshmen, Carmen Laguna and Anna Laorr, have led the Gophers late season charge carding their best scores of their careers.

Coach Michele Redman is ready to see if her team can continue to improve in Columbus, Ohio. “I am excited for this tournament. This is going to be a little bit more difficult field than we have had the past couple of weeks. Now that we have improved, it is exciting to see where we stand against these teams.”

Field: The 11-team field at the Lady Buckeye Invitational includes seven other Big Ten schools. Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern, Nebraska, Penn State. Iowa State, Kent State, and Baylor round out the field. Baylor is the field’s highest ranked team at No. 16. Michigan State won the tournament last year. Both the Spartans and Buckeyes come in as ranked teams.

Course: The par-72 Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University Golf Club will play host to the event. The course went under a restoration project overseen by Jack Nicklaus in 2005-06. The course has hosted many U.S. Open qualifiers over the years. It will play at 6,268 yards this weekend.


 

 

Next week, the Gophers will compete in the Big Ten Championships. The event will take place in French Lick, Ind. The tournament will run April 27-29.
