UM women’s golf protects the home course, and makes NCAA tournaments; MSU hardly misses

The Michigan women’s golf team admitted to feeling pressure to perform in the NCAA tournament, given that the Wolverines were hosting a regional tournament.

Michigan felt the heat on Wednesday but kept serving, and finished in a tie for third after the third and final round to advance to the NCAA Championship May 20-25 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Michigan shot 3 times during Wednesday’s third round to finish at 28 over the three days at University of Michigan Golf Course, tied with Arkansas in the last two holes of the NCAA Championships. They outperformed Virginia Tech by three shots for the final qualifying positions.

Top-ranked San Jose State, ranked fifth in the country, moved up to win the 10th over the district. Virginia, ranked eighth, was ranked second after being ranked 13th.

This marks the second year in a row that Michigan, seeded 18th, has advanced to the NCAA Championship and the fifth time in the program’s history. Four of those games have been under current coach Jan Dowling, in eight seasons.
