NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma women's golf team stands tied for ninth place after one round at the 16-team, season-opening Lady Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, P.R.  The Sooners carded a 306 (+18) at the par-72, 6,219-yard Championship Course of the Trump International Golf Club.

Georgia leads the tournament after shooting a 292 and is followed by Alabama in second (295) and host Purdue in third (296).
