By  | 

KANE’OHE, Hawai’i – Texas A&M women’s golf looks heads to the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational, looking to win the event for the sixth time in program history, hosted at the Kane’ohe Klipper Golf Course March 12-13.

The 54-hole tournament takes place on the par 72 / 6,099-yard track that produced individual medalists for Texas A&M in 2015, 2016 and 2017, plus team titles for the Aggies in 2007, 2009, 2012, 2016, and 2017.

The 12-team field includes Gonzaga, Hawai’i, Houston Baptist, North Texas, Northern Colorado, Seattle, SMU, No. 2 Texas, Texas A&M, UC Irvine, UTEP and Washington State.

All eight Texas A&M golfers made the trip to the island, headlined by the Aggie lineup of Brooke Tyree, Amber Park, Katie Finley, Courtney Dow and Ava Schwienteck. Tyree and Park recently received SEC weekly honors, as Tyree was named SEC Freshman of the Week and Park was named SEC Golfer of the Week on March 6 for their performances in winning matches against Texas State.

Dow and Schwienteck each contributed a match win in the 5-2 match-play victory over Texas State. Finley has played 12 stroke-play rounds this season, finishing par-or-better in four of the rounds.

Elizabeth Caldarelli, Chloe Velasco and Ariana Saenz are competing as individuals in the event.

The tournament begins with a 1 p.m. CT shotgun start Tuesday, followed by 36 holes of play. A team and individual champion will be crowned after a final round of play Wednesday.
