NCAA Womens Golf: NCAA Women's Golf Championship

The Texas Longhorns were the only Big 12 team to make the cut for the fourth round of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Sunday.

The rest of the Big 12 finished late. Baylor finished 18th, Oklahoma State finished 19th and TCU finished in 21st.


The Top 15 teams move on to Monday’s final round before match play begins on Tuesday, featuring the Top 8 remaining teams in the field.

For Texas to advance to match play, the Longhorns will have to make up the 13-stroke deficit between them at San Jose State and LSU, which are tied for seventh.

Stanford remained in the lead entering Monday’s final round of stroke play.
