Purdue Women’s Golf In Sixth Before Final Round at NCAA Championships

The women's golf team is close to reaching match play for the NCAA title.

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

A second national title for Purdue women's golf is unlikely, but still possible as the final round of the NCAA championships in Bradenton, Florida. The Boilers made the cut as one of the top 15 teams into the final round today. They sit in sixth place in a tight grouping of teams where third place and 12th place are separated by 15 strokes:

1.       Duke +30

2.       USC +34

3.       Arizona +41

4.       Tennessee +46

5.       Baylor  +46

6.       Purdue +47

7.       Stanford +48

8.       Washington +50

9.       Cal-Davis +51

10.   Northwestern +52

11.   Arkansas+55

12.   Texas Tech +56

The final round gets underway today and Purdue probably has a very good shot of getting as high as third. Nay higher and they would need USC and Duke to falter quite a bit. What has helped has been consistency. Purdue has gone 307-302-302 for their three rounds.

UPDATE: I was unaware of this, but the top 8 finishers today will advance to match play for the title, so Purdue is in great shape.

UPDATE #2: Sports suck
