Alabama Concludes Memorable Season at 2022 NCAA Women’s Golf Championships

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The University of Alabama women’s golf team competed in their final round of the season Sunday, after playing 54 holes at the 2022 NCAA Women’s Golf Championships at the Grayhawk Golf Club Raptor Course (par 72, 6,340 yards) in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Crimson Tide put together a 14-over-par 302 in the third round, producing a 52-over-par 916 tournament total for 24th place.

The top 15 teams advanced to the fourth round of stroke play, which will take place Monday, with the cut line at 39-over-par 903.

The Crimson Tide got off to a convincing start at the NCAA Championships Friday, sharing eighth place at the end of the first round, recording a 10-over-par 298, despite hitting into more than 10 mph winds and in near 100-degree temperatures. However, the lineup had to turn around less than 13 hours later and do it all over again. Alabama made early mistakes in the second round and never really generated enough momentum, resulting in a 28-over-par 316 Saturday.

UA was going to need to go just one over in the third round to make the eventual cut, and despite shedding off 14 strokes from its previous round, its 14-over-par 302 Sunday fell short.

The freshman, who just joined the lineup at the start of the spring season, paced the Tide at the end of the tournament with rounds of 72, 81 and 73, resulting in a 10-over-par 226 for a share of 63rd place. The rookie turned in two of the Crimson Tide’s lowest results with her first- and third-round scores, just one week after being selected to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Team.

Just behind her, Angelica Moresco was consistent throughout the three-day stretch, recording rounds of 77, 75 and 76 for a 12-over-par 228 tournament total and tied for 75th place. Sunday’s 18 holes marked her final round as a member of the Crimson Tide women’s golf team, after five favorable seasons at the Capstone.

Veterans Polly Mack and Emilie Øverås concluded the tournament tied for 106th place on scores of 17-over-par 233.

Mack, liked Moresco, walked her final 18 holes in a Crimson Tide uniform Sunday. The fifth year, who has immediate eligibility to compete on the EPSON Tour, capped her three-year career at Alabama being named a top-10 finalist for the ANNIKA Player of the Year and Women’s Golf Coaches Association Player of the…
