Tyler — UT Tyler women's golfer Laura Lindsey will be featured in the Faces In the Crowd section of the March 31st issue of Sports Illustrated, Ali Fenwick, SI reporter announced on Monday. Lindsey won the Jekyll Island Intercollegiate last weekend in record-breaking fashion.
Lindsey, a sophomore from Montgomery, recorded two eagles at the prestigious Jekyll Island tournament, which featured 9 of the nation's top 25 teams.
Her 68 was the lowest round in the 13-year history of the tournament for a female golfer.

In her short career, Laura has won seven tournaments out of 17 tournaments played.
