NEW YORK CITY -- The Texas A&M men's and women's golf programs are ranked among the nation's best in Golf Digest's third annual College Golf Guide, which is featured in its September issue.
The Aggie men's program, led by Head Coach J.T. Higgins, is ranked as the best in the Big 12 Conference and No. 15 nationally. The A&M women, under first-year Head Coach Trelle McCombs, is rated second among Big 12 schools and is No. 20 nationally.
Both programs are rated among the top 10 percent in the nation in
facilities/coaching and scoring average, and are among the top 20 percent for climate.
The College Golf Guide is designed to help high school students find the
right school for their needs. There are three separate rankings that
comprise the Guide: Balanced ranking, for students who place equal emphasis on school and sports; Golf First ranking, for students with dreams of playing golf professionally; Academics First ranking (available exclusively online), for students who are focused on education but still desire to play competitive golf. The Balanced ranking is the best indicator for the majority of young men and women heading off to college.
