The University of Georgia alumna recorded her first pro win at the inaugural Copper Rock Championship in 2021 and is back at Copper Rock Golf Course eager to defend her title. Tardy opened the 2022 season with three consecutive missed cuts but is hoping to build momentum from a tie for 58th at the Casino Del Sol Classic earlier this month. She heads off No. 1 tee at 10:15 a.m. MDT in Thursday’s first round.
Fresh off a three-week break, Srinivasan will look to continue her strong start to the season. The Furman University alumna has not finished outside the top 12 in three events played and that includes a career-best tie for fifth at the IOA Championship presented by Morongo Casino Resort & Spa. After a rookie year shortened by coronavirus, Srinivasan is finding the form that led to her selection as the 2020 ANNIKA Award winner.
A 2021 Epson Tour champion at the Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic, Broze is settling into a groove in her second season on the “Road to the LPGA.” She opened the 2022 campaign in Mesa, Ariz. for the Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic with a tie for 55th performance. The Oklahoma State University alumna followed it up with back-to-back top 5s including a tie for fourth in the Casino Del Sol Classic. If the trend continues, Broze will find the winner’s circle sooner than later.
