TORRES SET TO MAKE LPGA TOUR DEBUT

Former Gator Maria Torres will make her first appearance as an LPGA member this week.

She is one of 109 in the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic field. The event in Paradise Island, Bahamas kicks off the 2018 tour schedule. Torres is scheduled to tee off round one at 7:32 a.m. ET along with Tiffany Joh and Hannah Green.

Torres earned full-time status on the LPGA Tour in December after winning a three-way playoff grabbing the last of the 20 spots on tour.

Torres, who was a two-time All-American during her time as a Gator and 2016 SEC Individual Champion, becomes the first Puerto Rican born full-time LPGA Tour player. She will join Sandra Gal as the second Florida player currently on the Tour.

Gal is not in the Bahamas Classic field.
