Alexandra White finished the 2017 NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship in 14th place with a total score of 225 (+9).

White’s 14th place finish marks her 10th top-20 finish of the 2016-2017 season.

White officially opened the NCAA Championship a day early on Thursday, May 18, following BYU’s policy of not competing in Sunday play. She carded a 74 (+2), which counted as her third-round score.

Friday was cold and rainy, posing several challenges for the players. White was able to fight through the conditions and finish the day with an impressive score of 77 (+5).

Saturday’s round was postponed due to weather.

White started the third round on Monday with a birdie on her second hole, bringing her score to -1. She carded a 35 on the front nine and posted a 39 (+3) on the back nine to finish the last round with a 74 (+2).

“I am so proud and impressed with Alex and her play (last) week,” said BYU Coach Carrie Roberts. “The conditions were extremely difficult and she was so tough. She managed herself and the golf course very well. It was a great way to end her career.”

The BYU women’s golf team made it to the NCAA Lubbock Regional this season, finishing in 12th place.

Last season, the team placed 24th at the NCAA Championships. Kendra Dalton posted the top score for the Cougars at +4, tying for 36th place.
