Experience should be on the WKU Lady Topper Golf team’s side this coming week as the program competes in the 40th Annual FIU Pat Bradley Invitational.

WKU will be one of 15 teams competing Sunday through Tuesday at the par-72, 6,288-yard Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

Teams will play 18 holes each day with rounds beginning at 7 a.m. CT on each of the first two days. The final round will begin at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday with a shotgun start.

The Lady Toppers notched a strong result in this event last year, tying for second in the team competition. Georgina Blackman tied for seventh individually in the tournament a year ago with a 1-under 215 tally, which was the best three-round score of her career.

Katie Story and Mary Joiner also both tied for 13th last year in the event. Blackman has a history of strong results in the tournament with a fourth-place finish in 2015.

Blackman, Story and Joiner will all be in action in Florida this coming week, along with sophomore Abigail Smee and freshman Megan Clarke.

WKU is coming off an 11th-place finish earlier this month in a stacked field at Kentucky’s Bettie Lou Evans Invitational. The Lady Toppers’ best performance this season was a second-place effort out of 17 teams at East Carolina’s Pirate Collegiate Classic.
