In Columbus, Ga., Eunice Yi, of Evans, is in second place after the first round of the Georgia Top 60 Women’s Classic at Green Island Country Club.

The former Lakeside golfer, who will be a freshman on the Georgia Regents University team in the fall, shot 2-over-par 73. She had three bogeys (Nos. 7, 8 and 15) and one birdie (No. 16).

Yi trails LaGrange’s Caitlin Watts, an Alabama-Birmingham golfer, by a shot in the 36-hole event.

Yi is coming off a third-place finish at last week’s Georgia Girls’ Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club.

Former Top 60 champion Laura Coble opened with 77. Fellow Augustan Mary Helen McElreath had 86.

Emily Kurey, of Alpharetta, the defending champion, had 78.
