BATON ROUGE, La. --- The Georgia women's golf team opened play at the LSU Golf Classic with a 27-over 315 on Friday, placing the 18th-ranked Bulldogs 10th in the team field.

Rocio Sanchez Lobato's 4-over 76 was the best score of the day for Georgia, which also counted a pair of 78s from Emilie Burger and Manuela Carbajo Ré and Abby Johnson's 83. The Bulldogs dropped an 84 from Amira Alexander. Kailey Walsh, who is competing as an individual, also shot 78.

"I feel like we're really not that far away," head coach Josh Brewer said. "We let some very little things turn into big numbers on certain holes today. We'll try to correct that and move up a little bit tomorrow and gain some momentum headed in the right direction."
