Oklahoma State Wins Seventh Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship
April 26, 2009

Oklahoma State finished 13 strokes ahead of the pack en route to its seventh Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship crown at The Rawls Course in Lubbock, Texas. Junior Ashley Freeman of Texas A&M won the individual title after a two-hole playoff, the third individual playoff in Big 12 history.

Freeman and Oklahoma’s Kendall Dye ended three rounds tied for first with a six-over par score of 225.

On the first playoff hole, the duo both carded par. The next hole saw Freeman reach the green in two shots. She was long on her third putt before sinking her fourth shot for birdie and the victory. She is the third Aggie in Big 12 history to earn individual honors, following Ashley Knoll (2006) and Isabelle Rosberg (1998).

Senior Pernilla Lindberg and freshman Caroline Hedwall were the leaders for OSU and tied for third in a day that saw wind gusts up to 39 mph. The Cowgirls boasted three of the top five finishers as Oklahoma State won its first league crown since 2005. That year, current head coach Annie Young was also the individual winner. She becomes the first person in Big 12 history in any sport to win a Big 12 Championship team title as both a competitor and a coach.

Links to complete results for all competitors, along with a photo gallery and video recap can be found online via the conference Web site at Big12Sports.com. Big 12 teams will now await selections for the NCAA Championships. Pairings will be announced on Monday, April 27 at NCAAsports.com.
