Season ends for top-seeded women's golf after upset by Arizona

UCLA women's golf was eliminated from the NCAA championship after falling to Arizona in the first round of match play Tuesday. Junior Beth Wu was one of two Bruins to win individual matches

All five individuals won at least one match for the Wildcats over the last two days of match play.

Alabama fans know much about winning championships and if the Tide wins on Wednesday we will call it what it is - a national championship. She won holes 10 through 13 to put the match away, with the final two holes turning into a victory lap for the Taiwanese sensation.

In the quarterfinals against UCLA, Pagdanganan won her match 1 up, her birdie on the 18th hole sending Arizona to the next round.

In an improbable and magical run, the Arizona women's golf team defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 3-2 to win the NCAA National Championship on Wednesday in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Alabama would make things close, extending the match all the way to the 18th hole, but luckily the Wildcats were able to escape, winning one up, and tying the match at 2-2.

Pagdanganan, a 20-year-old sports management junior, finished second in the four-round, stroke play qualifying Monday, her final hole eagle forcing a sudden-death playoff between Arizona and Baylor for the final spot in the eight-team match play phase.

The rest of the teams play the third round on Sunday, but with BYU's Sunday play policy, their Thursday score will be added in before Monday. "It's a national championship, it's not hard to stay motivated".

Trump trade deal comes under anti-China fire
Still, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said China had agreed to dramatically increase purchases of USA farm and energy products. Responding to a reporter's question about the U.S.

First, 132 women teed off in the NCAA Women's Golf Championships.

Moore would win the 17th, and headed to the 18th with a stroke lead, hoping to secure the schools' third championship.

Abe would hit a great shot that would barely miss, setting her up for a chance at a birdie. She didn't make any putts that she felt like she had this week. After her approach shot landed in the thick rough off the right of the green, and she failed to get it on the green after a couple shots, she conceded the hole to Moore. Collectively, they trailed only two holes in the 99 holes they played at Karsten Creek Golf Club.

Of course, drama was theme the last 48 hours for the Wildcats, who needed a playoff just to qualify for the match play portion of the championship. In the four years since the NCAA switched to match play, the No. 8 seed has never advanced out of the quarterfinals. They got the job done today, and they made one more putt than we did. "But ever since that putt, it helped pumped my teammates up and I think that is what helped get us here".

For BYU, the women's team didn't qualify for the championships, but Rose Huang did individually and earned a Top 25 national finish.
