    Frogs’ junior Brooke Beeler shot a school record 7-under-par 65 and holds the individual lead, while TCU is in fourth place after Monday’s opening two rounds of the Central District Invitational.

    Beeler’s opening-round 65 broke the previous TCU mark of 66, set by current Frogs’ senior Prisela Campbell at the 2009 LSU Golf Classic. Beeler flirted with the record in November when she carded an opening-round 67 en route to medalist honors at the Alamo Invitational.

    With a 6-under 138, Beeler has a three-stroke lead over LSU freshman Austin Ernst entering today’s final round.

    Beeler’s opening round was highlighted by an eagle on the par 5, 480-yard fourth hole. Starting at hole 6 at the River Wilderness Golf Club, Beeler birdied three of her opening four holes while totaling five birdies in the round.

    Beeler, from Butler, Ill., shot a 73 in second-round play.

    No. 30 TCU’s 36-hole score of 587 is just four strokes behind leader and fourth-ranked LSU’s 583.

    Senior Melissa Loh and junior Rachel Raastad posted a second round 73 and 74, respectively.

    Raastad is tied for 22nd with a 6-over 150. Loh and Horned Frog freshman Sanna Nuutinen are tied for 30th with a score of 151 each. Nuutinen had an opening-round 74.
