Gators 20th after Day 1 of NCAA women's golf

Florida was in 20th place, 17 strokes out of the lead, after one round of the 24-team NCAA women's golf championships Tuesday in Albuquerque, N.M. The Gators shot 13-over-par 301.

Hannah Yun, a 16-year-old freshman, shot 1-over 73 to lead UF. Florida State's Caroline Westrup, playing as an individual, shot 72 and was tied for 15th. Southern California (284) led.

"We didn't have a good round," Gators coach Jill Briles-Hinton told the school Web site. "The girls were ready, but I think that they came out a little bit too worked up and too excited. They did get settled down, but it just never clicked for them."
