Eagle Classic Tees Off at Richmond Country Club

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The LPGA Futures Tour features some of the best up-and-coming women's golfers and that tour has made its way to the Richmond area this weekend.  The Eagle Classic teed off at Richmond Country Club on Friday with players battling for $100,000 in prize money.

One local player was getting her first shot against the pros.  15-year old Lyberty Anderson just completed her freshman year at Manchester High School and hit the links with the other golfers today.  Anderson shot an even par 72 for the day and finished the round tied for 41st.  She'll tee off at 1:20pm on Saturday afternoon.

Min Seo Kwak of South Korea finished the first round atop the leaderboard after firing a 65, one stroke ahead of Daniela Iacobelli.  Current tour money leader Kathleen Eckey finished the day at -2, good enough for an eleventh place sitting after one day of play.  Jill Hinton, head women's golf coach at the University of Richmond, shot -4 today and is just three strokes off the lead.  She will begin her second round at 12:30pm on Saturday.

Second round action will get underway at 7:50am at Richmond Country Club, with the final round teeing off on Sunday.
