To begin their season, USAO’s women’s golf team traveled to Lubbock, Texas for the Top of Texas Tournament hosted at the Lakeridge Country Club (Par 72, 6119 yards). The 54-hole tournament began Monday, Mar. 11 and concluded the next afternoon. USAO was one of nine teams to compete in the tournament.

USAO took five women to compete including freshman Emma Fields, sophomore Hudson Woloss, sophomore Moriah Shropshire, freshman Adde Glass, and sophomore Alix Schueneman.

As a team, USAO shot 360 (+72), 354 (+66), and 343 (+55) for a total of 1,057 (+193). The Drovers placed seventh out of the nine teams present.

Woloss, the team’s two bag, led the team with a 15th place finish. She had rounds of 89 (+17), 83 (+11), and 80 (+8). As she played more holes, Woloss found a rhythm as she saw two birdies in her second round and three in her third.

“I recently have been changing and working on my swing the few days leading up to the tournament, and it was difficult to keep reminding myself that it’s new and it’s not going to be perfect,” Woloss said on her biggest challenge at the tournament.

Fields, the team’s one bag, tied for 18th as she shot 83 (+11), 90 (+18), and 84 (+12). She sunk four birdies across the last two rounds. Schueneman, the team’s five bag, tied for 34th place after rounds of 95 (+23), 92 (+20), and 84 (+12). Finally, Shropshire, the team’s three bag, had rounds of 93 (+21), 89 (+17), and 95 (+23) for a tied 42nd place finish.

Glass, the team’s four bag, withdrew from the tournament and did not post scores for any of the three rounds.

As a team, the Drovers recorded 11 birdies, with Woloss leading the charge. USAO also recorded 83 bogeys across the four player’s three rounds.

“For the team, I would say short game needs to be consistent. Every green at each course we go to is going to be different than the last,” Woloss said. “But we have to adjust on what those greens and fairways are going to look like at each tournament in order to do better in the next.”

The Drovers will return in April for the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic. The tournament will be hosted at Lincoln Park West in OKC Monday, Apr. 8 through Apr. 9.
