MESA, Arizona – The LSU women’s golf team got under par rounds from Ingrid Lindblad and Carla Tejedo Mulet Friday as the No. 17 ranked Tigers stand at 2-under par and tied for second after the first round of the Clover Cup at the Longbow Country Club.

LSU’s 286 puts them in a tie with Clemson just two shots behind TCU at 4-under par 284.

Lindblad, the junior from Sweden, fired a 7-birdie round of 7-under 65, while Tejedo Mulet eagled the par 5 15th and the 17th hole to shoot 3-under on the final nine holes to post a 3-under 69.
