NCAA golf: All is well for Oregon, Texas, Texas and Georgia

When Valeria Pacheco didn’t see her father, Javier Pacheco, establish her on Wednesday for the final round of the NCAA Albuquerque Women’s Golf Regional Course at the UNM Championship Course, she wasn’t too worried even though he was on the previous course. tow days.

Pacheco, who helped her 72nd TCU equal by one stroke to fourth and final for the team at the NCAA Women’s Championships from May 20-25 in Scottsdale, Arizona, was told that her father was having trouble at work.

This was not exactly the truth.

“He’s doing good,” Pacheco said. “He was out of surgery about an hour ago. He just called me. I didn’t even know. They told me he had an emergency at work because he was supposed to be here (Wednesday) but he was actually in the hospital for surgery.”

When they first spoke after Wednesday’s tour, he was still reluctant to tell his daughter that his gallbladder had been successfully removed and that he was resting at UNM Hospital.

She said, ‘At first I was like, ‘Hey, how are you, how’s it going, we did it.’ And he said, ‘I know. Congratulations.’ Then he examined me and I saw that he was in the hospital. I said, “What happened?” But he is fine.”

Papa Pacheco is expected to remain in hospital on Wednesday night before returning to his home in South Florida today.

It was a happy ending for the Horned Frogs as well as the championship winner and Oregon No. 2 – who won for the fifth time this season. Briana Chacon helped the Ducks make a 4-under 860, three-shot lead over the Texans, led by former men’s lobo player Ryan Murphy. They became the first two teams to shoot equals during the tournament’s women’s post-season event. Chacon went to Wire to win her first collegiate championship, and her 9-under 207 was her best single result from three post-season rounds on the course.

“I think I told my coach on the last hole, finally, it took three years to get my first singles win, but yeah, I thought it would definitely come sooner rather than later,” Chacon said. “I was making a drastic change at the beginning of the (school) year, and it took a while to finish it. Now I feel confident and feel good about my swing.”

Georgia (2-over) took third place.

Meanwhile, UNM “Jenny” Lirtsadoadana and Lauren Lehigh were vying for one of the two spots that go to individuals who aren’t on a qualifying team.

They both finished the game 2-over 218, by one stroke behind Sam Houston’s Vieira Permata Rosada in last place.

“I think, as usual, nothing takes the place of experience,” said Lobos coach Gil Trujillo. “If you don’t come ready to play; in your head, physically, mentally, you can be a little tired – the wind, the dust, the fire, the smoke, you have to somehow overcome it all. And I hope they both understand that. That’s part of the national championship.” You can’t bring a B or a C game. You have to bring an A-plus to get to where you want to be.”

While Lertsadwattana struggled on the greens, putting up five holes to finish at 3-over 75, Lehigh rounded up 15 parcs with two ghosts and birdies to finish with a 1-over 73 that could have been much better.

“It’s been a bit of a struggle situation all week. I finally started hitting my lines (Wednesday) and I felt good,” Lehigh said. “I was an inch from here and an inch there. I was just there.”

Lertsadwattana was actually restricted to the final three holes to go into, but she veered on 16 and 17 to get out of the fray.

“I kind of thought the one-shot on the last three holes was going to really matter, but then I just couldn’t put in the hits,” she said. “The coaches never told us how close we got to the streak. I would say I played under a lot of pressure (Wednesday). I feel like I can play under pressure a lot at the moment, but maybe I’m a little tired now.”
