This tournament has an outstanding list of teams participating and should be a good test for the golf team.

I am looking forward to following this one. The ladies had an outstanding performance with a win a couple of weeks ago against a pretty good field.

After the 1st round, Coogs are tied for 6th place. Only 8 stokes from 1st place. Outstanding field.

Coogs holding their own. Wouldn’t be surprised if they have an outstanding weekend and come away with a win!

Going by last year’s Golfstat rankings:

Texas - #1
Florida State - #9
Illinois - #16
Oklahoma - #20
Baylor - #27
TCU - #28
Houston - #30
Miami - #31
Clemson - #34
Louisville - #37
Alabama - #39
Miss State - #42
Texas A&M - #58
Notre Dame - #76
Texas State - #83

This is almost what an NCAA Regional would look like.

We finish in 8th. Very good start to the season for our ladies . Among other teams OU shot 16 over today. I think they were in 1st place before that blowup.

The stats revealed that we were near the top of the field with birdies, average on par 3 and par 4 holes, and last in the field with shooting pars and par 5. Normally a par 5 is an opportunity to improve the team score, so I would analyze how we can improve our par 5 opportunities.

Solid showing for this young team in a tough early season tournament.
