Curtis leads Badgers in Opening NCAA Regional round

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

A career-best round from Wisconsin senior Gabby Curtis has the Badgers in 6th place overall after the first round of the NCAA Madison Regional at University Ridge Golf Course on Monday.

Curtis shot a career-low 67 and is tied for first after the first day of competition. She made six birdies over her last 10 holes, seven birdies overall. Her 67 is the second-lowest round by a Badger in NCAA Regional competition and the second lowest by a UW women's golfer at University Ridge (Jessie Gerry shot a 66 in the 2008 Badger Invitational).

Seniors Lexi Harkins and Becky Klongland both shot 1-over par 73s and are tied for 26th place. Junior Jessica Reinecke finished day one in a tie for 66th at +5, while senior Aya Johnson was one shot back.

Wisconsin's 290 was the best score for a Big Ten team, two shots ahead of Illinois, three up on Ohio State and four ahead of Northwestern.

Tomorrow's second round tees off at 8 a.m. CT. Wisconsin will tee off on the first hole starting at 8:54 a.m.
