Wildcats Travel to Texas to Compete in The Bruzzy



MANHATTAN, Kan. – After six days of rest, the Kansas State women’s golf team jumps right back on the road to travel to Argyle, Texas to compete at The Bruzzy hosted by North Texas, Sunday and Monday, at the par-72, 6,421-yard Lantana Golf Club.
 
“What we have been working on is not overly technical,” head coach Kristi Knight said. “It is just a matter of staying in the moment and sticking to the game plan we have worked on.”
 
After taking ninth at the MountainView Collegiate, the same five Wildcats will travel to Argyle. Seniors Reid Isaac and Niamh McSherry will lead the Wildcat lineup after strong performances in Tucson. Isaac, a Texas native, led the Wildcats last week with a 2-over par 218 to tie for 16th. McSherry followed seven strokes behind and tied for 39th.
 
Freshman Napua Glossner will also compete in Texas along with sophomore Haley Vargas and junior Heather Fortushniak
 
“We let some shots get away from us around the green at MountainView,” Knight said. “This is an entirely different type of golf course, so I think in the big picture going forward, what we have talked about is staying in the moment and not getting too emotionally high or low. It’s important to make sure we are diligent and intentional with each golf shot to figure out what we want to do.”
 
This year marks the third Bruzzy tournament after last year’s matchup was cancelled due to the pandemic. In 2019, Baylor took the title, finishing at 10-under par 854. Of the teams in this year’s field, Texas Tech was the next highest 2019 finisher in third place, seven strokes behind the Bears. 
 
“Lantana is a course that has opportunities to score,” Knight said. “At the end of the day, it’s about keeping the ball in play and sticking to our game plan. We need to stay level headed emotionally and not get caught up with ourselves in something that happened on the last hole.”
 
The tournament features 17 teams, nine of which are ranked in Golfstat’s top-50. Oklahoma State comes into the tournament ranked seventh nationally. Big 12 rivals Texas (No. 21), Iowa State (No. 29), Texas Tech (No. 30), Oklahoma (No. 33) and TCU (No. 42) will join the competitive field.
 
From outside the conference, Miami (No. 16), Houston (No. 17) and North Texas (No. 38) round out the ranked teams. The remaining teams include SMU, UTSA, Tulane, Mizzou, Colorado, San Diego State and Fresno State.
 
Kansas State will tee-off in three-somes with two other teams beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. Fans can follow live scoring at www.golfstat.com throughout the event.
