Ames’ Snyder shines in college debut
It didn’t take long for Ames’ Britta Snyder to feel right at home in college golf. But then again, she’s no stranger to competing on the biggest of stages. The Baylor freshman made her college debut this week at the Schooner Fall Classic where she finished in a tie for third, at -1, 209. Her tournament rounds of 67, 70, 72, which saw her amass 13 birdies and an eagle, helped Baylor capture their first team title of the season.
Snyder is continuing her strong play from the summer where she won her fourth AJGA title, at the D.A. Points Junior Open and finished runner-up at the AJGA Gateway First Bank Tulsa Junior. She was also slated to compete in her third USGA Women’s Amateur Four-Ball this spring, before the tournament was cancelled due to precautions surrounding COVID-19.
Baylor’s 54-hole score of -7, 833 set a new school record and set the tone for the remainder of the season. They compete next at the Betsy Rawls Invitational, October 10-11, at the University of Texas Golf Club.
