Josh Brewer had decided to transform the Liz Murphey Collegiate even before the final word came out last fall that the NCAA Women’s Championship would transition to match play in 2015. Brewer, head women’s coach at Georgia, was looking for a way to make the Bulldogs’ home event, one of the longest-running women’s events on the East Coast, look a little different in its 42nd year. The result is a high-stakes, late-season battle among some of the nation’s top teams for trophy, pride and, ultimately, ranking.

In place of a traditional 54-hole stroke-play event, Brewer has ...

Hey Y’all

A lot of things have happened since last time. My play in Hilton Head was a little rough again, but I learned a lot about my game.

My past experiences playing for the USA have been incredible and I know this will be nothing but amazing. To be picked with the group of girls that got chosen is an honor in ...

Arkansas won the LSU Classic for its third team title this season.

Lately, the annual LSU Classic has become Arkansas’ tournament to win. An eight-shot victory March 22 at the University Club in Baton Rouge, La., was Arkansas’ second consecutive victory there, its third in the past four years and also the third team title of the season.

With more and more weeks like these, the SEC has been under Razorback control. Arguably one of the deepest women’s golf conferences in the nation (along with the Pac-12), Arkansas carries the best Golfweek/Sagarin ranking of any program in the conference. That includes Alabama, a team that won the 2012 NCAA Championship ...
