Women’s golf recap: Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational day 2

Shelby Hodges

Not much changed in the second round of the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational for the women’s golf team on Monday. 

Sophomore Natalie Karcher still leads Texas with a second round score of 3-over-par 75 and a total score of 145. But she did drop in the overall rankings from tied for 11th on Sunday to 26th at the end of Monday’s play. 

Freshman Julia Beck and sophomore Tezira Abe are close behind in total score but tied Karcher in today’s round, both shooting 3-over-par 75. Beck recorded two birdies, two bogies and one triple bogie on the 17th hole. The two are ranked 43rd and 64th overall. 

“I think a lot of us are hitting it well,” Beck said. “We’ll get some good night sleep and do the same thing tomorrow.”

Junior Bertine Strauss, who is playing in the No. 1 position for Texas, reported a 9-over-par 81 score for the second round, the lowest finish for the team. 

Hopefully Tuesday’s final round will bring better weather and better scores from the home team to end the invitational on a positive note.
