Maryland women’s golf junior Patricie Mackova secured the individual title at the Yale Invitational this past weekend. The team followed suit with a strong performance, finishing in second place in the 15-team tournament.
“It feels great to win the Yale Invite individual title,” Mackova said in a release. “I had some good rounds in the past but never put together three good rounds until now. I struggled a bit today on holes 10-14, but I managed to come back. There were a lot of scoring opportunities on this course, so I took advantage of that. I still see some room for improvement, especially on the greens, but I’m looking forward to the next tournament.”
Mackova had an overall score of 205 — eight strokes under par. The Czech Republic native left the rest of the competition in the dust, as the tournament’s second-best individual score (Harvard’s Meiyi Yan) was three strokes behind her.
The Yale Invitational, which concluded on Sunday, marked Mackova’s first win of her collegiate career. She also led the tournament with 15 birdies.
Three other Terps — senior Maria Vittoria Corbi and freshmen Nicha Kanpai and AnPhi Le — finished in the top 20 of the tournament.
