White, Huang top-10 finishes, Cougars in third after day one
"We just didn't have our best stuff today," BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. "We feel very fortunate to still be in it. The wind was swirling all day, which made for difficult decisions. The solid play by Alex (White) and Rose (Huang) in the second round put us in a position where we can still win this thing."
Through incredibly windy conditions, BYU shot +27 (307) in the first round as a team. The Cougars bounced back, firing +11 (291) in round two. BYU's second round 291 was the second lowest team score of the day. Tulsa carded 288 in the afternoon for Monday's lowest round.
Huang and White led the Cougars, tying for fourth and sixth place, respectively. Huang fired a 70 in the second round after shooting a 75 in the morning round. White carded a 76 in round one, also responding with an even-par second round.
Lauren Atkinson and Brooklyn Hocker are tied for 28th place through 36 holes. Atkinson fired 76-79, while Hocker carded 80-75. Both sit at 15-over-par. Kendra Dalton rounded out the scoring for BYU, shooting 17-over-par.
BYU women's golf will play the third and final round of the Dale McNamara Invitational on Tuesday. Play will resume at 8 a.m. CDT, with the Cougars starting at 8:50 a.m.
