WOMEN’S GOLF PROGRAM: A Brief History
Lady Razorback Golf is a relatively young program, starting in 1995-96. The best finish (5th) in the Southeastern Conference Championship came in 1999. The following season, the team made its first appearance in the NCAA postseason. Last year (2004), in Coach Hester’s second season, the young team was led by two sophomores and received the program’s third NCAA Regional bid. The team is two for two since Hester’s arrival to Fayetteville and ended the 2003-04 season ranked 31st in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings.
The U of A golf team boasts the reigning Kansas State Amateur Champion (Courtney Mahon, JR), the Arkansas State Amateur Match Play Champion (Gena Johnson, SR), and Arkansas State Stroke Play Champion and U.S. Amateur Finalist (Amanda McCurdy, JR).
