"It's golf and sometimes you don't play your best and it snowballs a little bit. In general it was just a very mediocre week when it came to ball striking and putting for our team, and a mediocre week turns into mediocre scores."
The Lady Bears travel to Franklin, Tenn., to play three rounds at the Mason Randolph Fall Preview which runs Sept. 20-22. Live scoring for the tournament will be available at www.GolfStat.com. Follow @BaylorWGolf on twitter for updates throughout the season.
