Texas A&M’s Park, Tyree earn weekly honors from SEC

By  | 

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Texas A&M sophomore Amber Park earned SEC Women’s Golfer of the Week and Aggie Brooke Tyree earned SEC Women’s Golf Freshman of the Week, the league announced Wednesday. Park and Tyree each won matches for the Aggies in a 5-2 dual-match victory over Texas State Saturday at Miramont Country Club.

Park defeated the Bobcats’ Anne-Charlotte Mora 2 Up, in the day’s most compelling match. Park found herself 4 Down after 10 holes, then eagled the par-4 11th to start her comeback, winning six of the last eight holes. This is Park’s first career SEC Golfer of the Week honor after earning a freshman of the week honor last season.

Tyree earned the clinching point for A&M, defeating the Bobcats’ Sasiskarn Somboonsup 3&2. With Tyree 2 Up on the 16th hole, she made an uphill chip from 40 feet away for birdie, clinching the match after an attempt by Somboonsup to hole out a chip herself. It is Tyree’s first SEC Freshman of the Week honor, and she is the fourth Texas A&M golfer to win the award.

The Aggies return to action March 12-13 at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in Kane’ohe, Hawai’i.
