COLLEGE STATION, Texas—The No. 30 Texas A&M women’s golf team is looking to improve its conference standing this weekend at the SEC Women’s Golf Championship in Hoover, Ala.
The tournament, hosted at the prestigious Greystone Golf and Country Club, is just the second appearance for the Aggies after joining the SEC in 2012. The tournament boasts some of the top teams in the country and Texas A&M is looking to make an impression.
“Anytime you have the opportunity to play in a field like this, it’s great to see how we compare to the top teams,” Texas A&M head coach Trelle McCombs said. “Last I looked there were 8 teams from the SEC in the top 30. It's anyone's tournament really. I feel very confident in this team and I know they can compete with any team in this conference.”
The par-72, 6,050-yard Founders Course has played host to the tournament in 2013 and will continue through 2016.
“The course set up will be a little different from last year,” McCombs said. “It will be a little shorter but the real defense of this course is the greens. You must be in the right places on these greens; it demands that no matter how short or long you play the course. We are going to do what we've been doing, which is put ourselves in position each day we go out.”
The Aggies are returning to the course after falling in the finals of the Black Bracket to Michigan State at the Liz Murphey Classic. Representing A&M at the tournament are seniors Katerina Ruzickova and Chelsea Mocio and freshmen Marijosse Navarro, Bianca Fabrizio and Andrea Jonama.
The tournament will begin teeing off from the No. 1 and No. 10 holes at 8:30 am (CT). Live scoring for the event will be available at GolfStat.com.
