Women’s Golf | May 21, 2024

CARLSBAD, Calif. – No. 4 seeded USC women’s golf finalized its season, as it fell in the final four to No. 1 seeded Stanford 3-1-1 on Tuesday, May 21 at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. 

The Trojans had one player win in the matchup, as junior Amari Avery took home a 2&1 victory. Avery led throughout the match, but ran into some trouble, as she went all square after hole No. 15, but a long birdie putt put her back in the driver’s seat. After she went up one, she added to her total on hole No. 17, as she put herself as the first winner for both matches today. 

Freshman Bailey Shoemaker concluded her debut in the NCAA Championship with a tie thru 17, as she was stopped on hole No. 18 as the match was clinched. However, before that Shoemaker overcame a two-point deficit, as she won both hole No. 16 and hole No. 17. 

Senior Brianna Navarrosa ended her college career in a close dual, as she ended up losing 2&1. Navarrosa fell victim to four-straight hole loses as she went from 1 UP at hole No. 14 to down to two after hole No. 17. 

Sophomore Catherine Park ended her season with a 3&2 defeat. Park earned a one-stroke advantage on hole No. 1 and held that advantage all the way to hole No. 11. However, from then on, the match was controlled by Stanford’s Kelly Xu. Junior Xin (Cindy) Kou was the first finisher of the afternoon, as she lost 6&5.

The Trojans are now 6-7 all-time in NCAA Championship Match Play. 

USC ends its season with four tournament wins, four individual wins and a top-four finish at the NCAA Championships.
