Women’s golf to make ninth-consecutive NCAA Regional bid


The Texas women’s golf team is gearing up for its ninth-consecutive NCAA Regional bid May 5–7 at the Traditions Club in Bryan, Texas.

The tournament includes 54 holes of stroke play with par set at 72.

Texas was chosen as the eighth seed in the tournament of 18 total teams. Three of these 18 are ranked in Golfweek’s top-10 teams in the nation, including No. 1 UCLA, No. 4 Georgia and No. 10 Arizona.

The Longhorns will look to compete with those top-10 teams in the Texas Regional after an impressive second place finish in the Big 12 Championship. Sophomore Sophia Schubert tied for second at 3-under par, and junior Julia Beck finished in fifth place at 1-under par. As a team, Texas finished 3-over par trailing only Oklahoma State, who dominated the tournament at 8-under par.   

Joining Schubert and Beck will be seniors Tezira Abe and Natalie Karcher, as well as junior Haley Mills.

The six teams with the lowest scores from each region will advance to the NCAA Championships, which will be held in Eugene, Oregon on May 20–25.

Texas will look to build off of its notable Big 12 Championship performance and try to secure a spot in the NCAA Championship after finishing only one spot short of the NCAA Championship in 2015.
