Arkansas women's golf team advances to NCAAs

Associated Press Published: May 12, 2012

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas' women's golf team has advanced to the NCAA Championship by claiming the last spot from the Central Regional by one stroke.

The Razorbacks on Saturday finished with a 913 with rounds of 310-308-295. The NCAA Championship will be in Nashville, Tenn., May 22-25.

Arkansas began play Saturday in 12th place in the regional at Columbus, Ohio. But its score of 295 was the fourth-highest of the day and enough to put the Razorbacks in eighth place, good enough to qualify for the championship.

The Razorbacks had to wait to see whether Oregon would score lower or force a playoff, but the Ducks' top player missed a birdie opportunity on the final hole and Arkansas advanced.
