Maryland women’s golf finished its regular season this weekend at the 40th annual Lady Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio. The Terps finished sixth overall with a team score of +61. Ohio State won the event with a team score of +33.

Sophomore Patricie Mackova, a native of Prague, Czech Republic, had Maryland’s best individual score. On the course’s 6,319-yard, par 72 course, she shot 77 in her first round, a 74 in her second and a 75 in her third and final round. She finished eighth overall at +10, her fourth top-ten finish in the team’s five events this season.

Head coach Kelly Hovland expressed her pride in Mackova’s performance.

“I’m really proud of Patricie’s performance this week,” Hovland said. “She continues to step up in the biggest events against the best competition. I’m really excited to see what she can do in the next couple of weeks of the postseason because I think she still hasn’t played her best golf!”

Two other Terps produced individual scores in the event’s top 30. Junior Maria Vittoria Corbi finished 20th with a score of +16 and sophomore Karla Elena Vásquez Setzer finished 25th with a score of +19.

With the regular season finished, Hovland reflected on her team’s performance.

“The spring has been a challenging season for this group, but they have gotten a ton of experience at the highest level,” Hovland continued. “I’m excited what that will mean for this upcoming postseason and in the seasons ahead.”

Maryland will travel to Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, PA on April 22th-24th for the Big Ten Championship.

“I’m hopeful [the Lady Buckeye Invitational was] a great learning experience for this young team and preparation for the Big Ten Championship next week,” Hovland said. “It’s a short turnaround to get ready for the year’s biggest event.”
