Aggie Women’s NCAA Championship Golf Set

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The 19th-ranked Texas A&M women’s golf team is set to make its first NCAA championship appearance since 2015 at the 6,383-yard, par-72 Grayhawk Golf Club May 20-25.

“We are delighted to be here,” said head coach Gerrod Chadwell. “There was relief and peace for us going through the regionals. Now we’re going to let it go. It’s everyone’s last week here. We were able to ride the course yesterday and see that it is in phenomenal shape. I can’t wait to hit some shots today and see how the course responds.

The format

The first leg of the tournament will begin with 54 holes in stroke play from Friday to Sunday, after which the top 15 teams from the 24 contenders and nine non-progressing teams will advance to the next stage. On Monday, the final 18 holes of stroke play will be played where the top eight teams will advance to match play, as well as the individual 72-hole champion will be crowned.

The National Tag Team Champion will be crowned in match play with teams ranked 1-8 based on stroke play results. The quarter-finals and semi-finals take place on Tuesday, while the championship game is scheduled for Wednesday.

Programming

Chadwell’s lineup includes Adela Cernousek, Hailee Cooper, Jennie Park, Blanca Fernández García-Poggio and Zoe Slaughter. Fernández García-Poggio earned first-team All-SEC honors and leads the team in hitting average of 71.85. Every member of the Aggie lineup has recorded a top 10 this season, including a runner-up performance at Franklin Regional from Park.

Last outing

The Maroon & White pulled off a stunning six-stroke comeback in the final round behind Park’s 8-under 208 and Slaughter’s 7-under 65 in round three. Texas A&M shot 5-under 283 at regional to advance to the NCAA Championship.
