We are 1/3 of the way through the match with #1 Stanford and we lead in 2 matches and they lead in 2 matches and one match is tied. We can do this!

Hey, getting there is the hardest part and they definitely put them in that position to win it all.

That’s all Au fans should ask for in our programs. Golf certainly has answered the call.

Well damn just got home a few minutes ago and came down to the last hole basically feel bad for Telfer hung in there with the #1 team which I thought we would be lucky to win one match. Guess which match I thought we would win Telfer's shows you what I know. Golf is such a great game. Mental mental mental

So proud of this team and I still say we will win a national championship with either men's or women's teams.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – After a come-from-behind victory to beat UCLA in the quarterfinals to start the day, the Auburn women's golf team saw its season come to an end at the NCAA Championship on Tuesday with a 3-2 loss to Stanford in the semifinals. 

"I'm incredibly proud," Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said. "They never quit fighting. We had some mistakes, some tired swings. It's such a long week with the heat and the wind in the afternoon. But what a group. Our seniors, we really appreciate how they've transformed this program. They will be missed."

It was seniors Kaleigh Telfer and Mychael O'Berry who secured the two wins needed to beat UCLA in the quarterfinals. Telfer made eagle on No. 7 to win her match, 3&2, and O'Berry followed in the anchor spot with a 2&1 victory to send the Tigers to the Final Four. 

The duo has made match play in all three postseasons together with two appearances in the semifinals. 

Junior Megan Schofill also won her match against UCLA and then came back in the semifinals and beat Stanford's Sadie Englemann, 2-up, to go 2-0 on the day. Schofill finished as the team's top finisher in stroke play, placing tied for 27th overall. 

As a national semifinalist, Auburn earned an invitation to the 2022 East Lake Cup in November. It's the second time in the last three postseasons the Tigers made it to the semis. 

"It's so hard to get here," Luellen said. "But it's something that is doable for future teams. The girls that are returning, the experience that they'll gain will be able to help with the young ones. We'll be quite young next year, but we've got some really great talent. We'll debrief, and our eyes will be set on Grayhawk 2023."

Thanks to the LADIES for giving us 2 wonderful days of golf...just a couple of shots and we could be playing to the title...BUT I'll say the coverage was 'slanted' to Stanford....they got most of the coverage every day and the 'rest' of the schools only got any 'views' if it involved Stanford....

Anna Foster, Megan Schofill named WGCA All-Americans

AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn teammates Anna Foster and Megan Schofill were both selected by the Women's Golf Coaches Association as Honorable Mention All-Americans following the 2021-22 season, the organization announced Thursday.  

Foster and Schofill each played a part in the Tigers' Final Four run at the NCAA Championship earlier this week at Grayhawk Golf Club. 

Schofill was the team's top individual player in stroke play, finishing tied for 27th overall, and also won both of her matches against UCLA and Stanford in the match play portion. Foster placed in a tie for 40th individually and scored a point in match play vs. Stanford. 

For the season, Schofill finished tops on the team with a 72.35 stroke average – just edging out Foster at 72.36. The duo ranks fifth and sixth respectively in single season history at Auburn in stroke average. They're also top five all-time in most rounds under par in a season. Schofill is tied for second with 14 while Foster is fourth with 13. 

In April, Schofill set the Auburn 54-hole record at the SEC Championship (207) where she finished as the individual runner-up. It was one of two top-five finishes for the junior and one of five tournaments she placed in the top 20.

Foster also had a pair of top-five finishes and was instrumental in helping the Tigers advance to the NCAA Championship with a career-low 67 (-5) in the final round of the Stillwater Regional. At one point, the sophomore shot par or better in 12 straight rounds from September to February. She finished with 17 rounds at par or better on the season. 

This marks the third time in the last four years Auburn has had a WGCA All-American. Julie McCarthy earned Honorable Mention honors in 2019, and Kaleigh Telfer was named a First Team All-American in 2020. It's the first time since 2010 (Cydney Clanton, Candace Schepperle) Auburn has had two WGCA All-Americans in the same season. 

The program now boasts 18 WGCA All-Americans and 35 WGCA All-American honors.
