Monday May 19, 2014Gators Return to Oklahoma for 2014 NCAA Championship
The Florida women’s golf team will travel to the state of Oklahoma for the second time in two weeks. But this time, it’s for their fourth-straight NCAA Women’s Golf Championship. This is the team’s 24th appearance at the championship event in school history.
Last spring, the UF women placed 17th out of the 24 teams participating with a final score of 1205 (53-over). Junior Camilla Hedberg will compete in her third-consecutive NCAA Championship as senior Elcin Ulu will participate in her second donning the Orange and Blue.
Starting tomorrow morning, the Gators will compete for their third NCAA Championship title (1985 and ‘86).
Head Coach Emily Glaser Says: “We got our first look at the course yesterday and it is a great venue for this week's championship. As you might expect in Oklahoma in the spring, the winds are forecasted to be strong early in the week. Patience will be a big key to our success. If we can do this and limit our mistakes, we will have a good tournament.”
The tournament is being held at the par-70, 6,194-yard Tulsa Country Club, May 20-23.
