On Sunday, Feb. 5, the Texas A&M women’s golf team teed off in Orlando, Fla. in the UCF Challenge hosted by the University of Central Florida.
The Aggies had high expectations for this tournament after a recent tournament victory, but after a problematic 2-over-par, in the first round, they had a tough hill to climb in order to win the UCF Challenge.
“[They] really need to change the mindset heading into the final round,” A&M Coach Gerrod Chadwell said before the third round, according to “We have to attack early and not get in a defensive mode. We can’t be worried tomorrow about not losing any more ground, but we have to be aggressive. We know we can have a great round tomorrow, so we are excited to go out and put it together.”
This attitude shift helped graduate Hailee Cooper as she shot 1-under-par, a 71, in the second round. This was Aggie’s best performance in the third round, as the rest of the team shot over-par, other than senior Jennie Park who shot an even 72 on both rounds.
The weak second round and troubling first held A&M back and firmly tied them in ninth place with University of North Carolina Wilmington.
