Women's golf fifth after first round of NCAAs

By Peter Yoon

UCLA will have to come from behind in order to defend its national title in women's golf after an opening-round of four-over 292 Tuesday at the Vanderbilt Legends Course in Franklin, Tenn., left the Bruins six shots behind first-place Alabama at the NCAA finals.

Brianna Do and Erynne Lee each shot even-par 72 to lead the top-ranked Bruins, who are tied for fifth place heading into Wednesday's second round. Lee Lopez shot 72 and Tiffany Lua had a 75 to round out UCLA's scoring. Last year, UCLA went wire-to-wire in winning the school's third national title in women's golf.
