Texas Longhorns Makes Cut at NCAA Women’s Golf Championships

The Longhorns took a big step back on Sunday but managed to slide back up the leaderboard to move on to Monday’s final round

The Texas Longhorns barely made the cut after the third round of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Sunday.

Texas needed to be among the Top 15 teams in order to advance to the final round of stroke play on Monday. Texas started the day in a tie for 11th place, but the Longhorns’ play on Sunday nearly took them out of contention.

Texas finished third round with a 13-over-par 301 on Sunday, as the Longhorns ended up in a tie for 13th place. 

That left Texas with a three-round total of 37-over-par 901. When Texas finished its round, the Longhorns were in 22nd place.

Stanford was in first place after the third round, followed by Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA and Auburn.

After Monday’s final round of stroke play, the Longhorns need to be in the Top 8 to advance to match play on Tuesday. To do that, Texas will have to make up at least 13 shots on LSU and San Jose State, which are tied for seventh.
