Catherine Park Shatters Pac-12 Record, as USC Women’s Golf Finishes Second

Women’s Golf | April 23, 2024

PULLMAN, Wash. – Sophomore Catherine Park picked up her third win of the season and second consecutively, as USC finishes second at the final Pac-12 Championship on Tuesday, Apr. 23, at the Palouse Ridge Golf Course. 

Park decimated the rest of the field as she posted a Pac-12 Tournament record 15-under-par and won the tournament by five strokes. The sophomore cruised towards the win, as she finished out strong with a birdie-eagle combo on holes No. 17-18. That final push carded her a 67 (-5), as she scored 70-64-67 in three rounds. 

Senior Brianna Navarrosa followed her as she posted her second top-five finish of the season. Navarrosa carded her best 18-hole performance in the third round, as she posted a 66 (-6) and ended her tournament seven-under-par. That performance shot her up five spots in the rankings, as she finished tied for fourth overall. The senior was carried by an Eagle on hole No. 5 and posted three birdies in the last four holes. 

Junior Amari Avery sat third on the squad, as she ended up in a tie for 16th. Avery overcame her tough first round (77) and posted back-to-back under-par rounds as she ended the tournament one-under-par. 

The last two pieces in the Trojans lineups were junior Xin (Cindy) Kou and freshman Bailey Shoemaker. Kou carded a 75 on the final day to put her six-over-par for the tournament and put her in a tie for 37th. Shoemaker carded a 74 as she was seven-over-par, putting her in a tie for 40th. 

The Women of Troy will see what fate awaits them in the postseason. The NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Selection Show will be held tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT on the Golf Channel.
