Houston sophomore Karen Fredgaard claimed the first title of her college career on Feb. 2 at the UCF Challenge. On a cold, windy week at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, the Denmark native went 7 under for 54 holes to win the individual title by two shots over Wake Forest’s Lauren Walsh.
Fredgaard pieced together rounds of 70-67-72. He second-round 67 included seven birdies in her first 14 holes before she cooled off with two bogeys to close. Fredgaard closed well on the final day, battling back from 2 over on the front nine with three birdies on her back nine.
Before the UCF Challenge title, Fredgaard’s previous best finish in a college-golf tournament was a runner-up at the White Sands Invitational in October 2019.
