A&M's Szeryk ready for NCAA golf championship

STILLWATER, OK -

Texas A&M senior Maddie Szeryk tees off in the final tournament of her collegiate career, searching for an individual national championship at the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship, May 18-21 at Karsten Creek Golf Club.

“I’m pretty excited, the NCAA Championship is always a fun event to go to,” said Szeryk. “I’m just going to do the same thing I did at Regionals, stick to my game plan and have fun.”

Szeryk, who holds the NCAA career record with 90 rounds of at least even par, tees off on hole No. 10 Friday at 1:10 p.m. One of 132 players to reach the national finals site, Szeryk qualified for the championship by finishing second at the NCAA Austin Regional with a 7-under 209.

Szeryk, already a two-time All-American, finished 13th at last season’s NCAA Championships in Sugar Grove, Ill., marking the seventh time since 2008 an Aggie has finished in the Top 25. No Aggie has finished higher than sixth at the NCAA Championship.

The final event of Szeryk’s stellar collegiate career, she currently holds the Texas A&M career records in stroke average (71.58), birdies (483), eagles (10) and will break the career record for rounds played with her 139th on Saturday. Szeryk, who plays internationally for Canada, will represent the International Team at the Palmer Cup on July 6-8.

The 72-hole tournament, which is contested on the par 72 / 6,328-yard course, features a cut from 24 to 15 teams after three rounds, and to the top nine individuals not on an advancing team. Monday’s final round is televised on the Golf Channel, with coverage beginning at 3 p.m. as an individual national champion is crowned. Live scoring for all four rounds is available on golfstat.com.
