Women's Golf Announces 2021 Spring Schedule
BATON ROUGE – LSU women’s golf head coach Garrett Runion announced Tuesday the 2021 spring schedule, which kicks off Feb. 15 in Melbourne, Florida.
“I am very pleased with the commitment our athletic director Scott Woodward and the SEC office has made to allow us to play a very competitive and safe tournament schedule this spring. The schedule did not change too much and still provides us a challenging spring that will prepare us for postseason.”
LSU will play in six tournaments during the spring starting Feb. 14-16 at the Moon Golf Invitational at the Duran Golf Club. The Tigers will then play in the Icon Invite Feb. 22-23 at The Golf Club of Houston.
The squad will travel to Columbia, S.C. to compete at the Gamecock Intercollegiate at Columbia Country Club March 1-3. The final regular season tournament away from Baton Rouge will be March 19-21 at the UGA Golf Course for the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic.
Twelve teams from the Southeastern Conference will travel to Baton Rouge to compete in the LSU Tiger Golf Classic April 6-7 at The University Club.
Postseason will kick off April 14-18 with SEC Championships. The meet will be hosted at Greystone Golf Course in Birmingham, Alabama.
The University Club will host an NCAA Regional for the fourth time May 10-12. The top teams will advance to NCAA Championships May 21-26 in Scottsdale, Arizona, at Grayhawk Golf Club.
“I am really looking forward to starting off in Florida where two of our players are from (Latanna Stone and Kendall Griffin),” Runion said. “I know they are excited to compete close to home. To have almost every SEC team at our home course and see how they handle it is a highlight of this schedule. This team is ready to get back together to prepare for actual events this spring.”
LSU wrapped up the 2020 fall slate with a No. 3 ranking by Golfstat and No. 4 ranking by Golfweek. The team earned just the second No. 1 ranking in school history during the fall schedule. The Tigers earned a pair of second-place finishes and wrapped up in 10th place at the final tournament.
