No. 14 Women’s Golf Wraps Up Fall Season in Cabo

Arkansas Women’s Golf will finish the fall list on a high note this weekend at the Battle at the Beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hosted by TCU, the tournament takes place at Club Campestre San Jose and includes 16 other teams.

The Battle at the Beach is a 54-hole, three-round tournament over three days. The shotgun start on Friday and Saturday is at 9:00 a.m., while the final round is at 8:00 a.m. (both times CT) on Sunday.

Eight of the programs in the 17-team field are in the top 25 (including Arkansas) according to Golfstat. Arkansas has also faced six of the teams in the field this season. The tournament also includes 10 of the top 50 individual golfers with Miriam Ayora in the mix at number 28.

Ayora will lead the Razorbacks for the second straight tournament. The junior achieved her best performance at the last tournament when she finished the Stephens Cup with a tie in eighth place after posting a 3-under-213 (73-71-69). She has led the Razorbacks in their first three tournaments and has a team-leading 72.67 point average.

Kajal Mistry will follow Ayora at number 2 in the lineup. Mistry also had her best performance of the year at the Stephens Cup after scoring a 1-over-217 (71-74-72). The senior recently competed in her second straight Northwest Arkansas Championship as a sponsor waiver at the LPGA event.

Ffion Tynan will make her season debut for the Razorbacks at No. 3. A native of Llanharry, Wales, she has had a busy summer highlighted by a win at the Welsh Ladies Amateur Championship. Tynan played in six tournaments for the Razorbacks last season. Reagan Zibilski will compete for the fourth time this season, this time in 4th place. The newcomer finished the Stephens Cup in a tie in 29th place (76-71-79=226).

Kendall Todd puts together the lineup for the Razorbacks. Todd played as a singles player at the Blessings Collegiate Invitational and carded a 225 (75-75-75) for 16th place. She is the second highest rated female golfer in Golfstat, ranking 74th in the most recent poll.

Newcomer Meghan Royal will also make the trip to Mexico and compete as an individual. Royal entered the world of collegiate golf at the BCI where she placed 31st with 230 (76-77-77).

The team played on one of the most challenging fields in college golf at the Stephens Cup in Juno Beach, Florida earlier this month. Arkansas finished seventh with an 11-to-875 (299-284-292) that marked a season-low for both 18 and 54 holes.
