Texas A&M Tees Off In Argyle For Bruzzy Challenge

By  | 

ARGYLE, Tex. - Playing some of its best golf of the season, Texas A&M’s women’s golf team heads to the Bruzzy Challenge at Lantana Golf Club Monday.

The two-day, 54-hole tournament takes place on the par 72 / 6,421-yard track that is rated as one of the Top 50 Golf Courses in Texas by the Dallas Morning News.

Three ranked foes, No. 2 Texas, No. 19 TCU and No. 20 Miami, highlight the 15-team field. Rounding out the field are host North Texas, Baylor, BYU, Houston, Iowa, Kansas State, Maryland, Missouri, Ole Miss, SMU and Texas Tech.

The Aggies have finished fifth-or-better in each of their last three stroke play events, including a 5-under score at the MountainView Collegiate in Saddlebrooke, Ariz. the last time out.

Ava Schwienteck leads the Texas A&M lineup after a season-best ninth place finish at the MountainView Collegiate. Schwienteck turned in a final-round 6-under 66, the best round by an Aggie in two seasons, on the way to a 4-under 212. Amber Park returns to the lineup after securing her fourth top-10 finish of the season with a 3-under 213 in Arizona.

Courtney Dow holds the team’s second-best stroke average at 73.39 entering the event, only trailing Park’s 73.26. In the 2018-19 season, Dow has two top-10 finishes and won the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational.

Brooke Tyree shot an even-par 216, matching her best 54-hole score of the season in the last event. She enters the Bruzzy Challenge with a 74.61 stroke average, which ranks sixth all-time for Texas A&M freshman season stroke average. Katie Finley completes the Aggie lineup, having posted four par-or-better rounds this season.

Texas A&M’s Chloe Velasco is in the event as an individual, playing her fourth tournament of the season.

Texas A&M begins the tournament with two rounds on Monday, starting at 8 a.m. in a shotgun start. The final round is held Tuesday.
