O’ahu, HAWAI’I – Led by junior Lea Garner’s sixth-place finish, BYU women’s golf took fourth place at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational on Thursday.

Senior Maria Yacaman made major progress in the third round, moving up 34 places to a tie for 22nd (+13). She shot a career-low 70 in the final round.

“I was trying to play well on the last day and wanted us to finish well,” Yacaman said. “I was glad that I was able to improve in this round.”
