Women’s golf traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to finish its fall slate of tournaments at Texas Christian University’s Battle at the Beach tournament.
The Mean Green placed 10th out of 17 teams in the tournament, which featured 10 top 50 teams and several nationally ranked players. Head coach Michael Akers said the tournament showed the team the potential they have to compete with top schools.
“The competition was extremely good, and it was very enlightening for me to watch our players versus their players and see how good we are,” Akers said. “On the outside, you would think that we are a better team just by watching them play — but some of those little details, they did a little bit better and they beat us by a few shots.”
Graduate Audrey Tan tied for ninth on the individual leaderboard. Tan, along with graduate Patricia Sinolungan, who took 50th place, flew to the Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific in Thailand the following day.
Senior Emilie Ricaud had the second-best showing for the Mean Green at the tournament, tying for 29th at four-over par.
“This was my first time going to Mexico, and for me it is always good to be next to the sea because I am from an island, so I was calm and just knew it was going to be a good tournament,” Ricaud said. “I made a few mistakes that cost me a lot, but I also had some really good rounds and had two eagles.” ——–
