Texas Tech Women’s Golf Placed Fourth in Onion Creek Tournament
Texas Tech women’s golf placed in the top five in the Challenge at Onion Creek.
The Lady Raiders closed the tournament Tuesday in fourth place after a 6-over-par 286 final round at the Onion Creek Club in Austin.
The final-round card left the Lady Raiders with a 32-over 872 score, just 10 strokes back of team champion Gonzaga. Texas State finished second at 25-over and Kennesaw State came in third, just two strokes in front of Tech.
“This wasn’t our best effort and our players know that,” said Tech head coach JoJo Robertson. “I think we will learn a lot from this, though, and we’ll be ready to go next week in Florida.”
Gabby Dominguez and Hannah Arnold led the Lady Raiders over the final 18 holes, and Arnold finished with Tech’s lowest three-round score, recording a 7-over 217 that left her in a tie for 10th overall, her best career finish.
Kim Kaufman entered the day among the tip-five individuals, but a 7-over 77 final found, her highest 18-hole score this year, dropped her into a tie for 15th.
The Lady Raiders will compete in the Marsh Landing Invitational on April 8th and 9th in Jacksonville, Florida.
The team will compete in the Big 12 Championships on April 19th through the 21st at the Harvester in Rhodes, Iowa.
