In final-round play last year, Annika Clark equaled a career-low round with a 69. She recorded three consecutive birdies and five in a six-hole stretch. The Highlands, Texas, native finished at 1-over 217 for the second best 54-hole score of her career.

Emmy Martin totaled five final-round birdies in finishing at 1-under 215, the second-best score of her career. She tied for 20th individually.

Quotable
“We are so ready to begin tournament play,” TCU head women’s golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said. “We’ve had a great two weeks of practice, workouts and mental training. We’re really excited to get started and have fun with our journey.”

The Lineup
TCU’s lineup features Emmy Martin, Grace Do, Annika Clark, Brooke McDougald and Tiffany Breitenwischer.

Noting the Horned Frogs
* Emmy Martin earned All-Big 12 honors last year as she set a TCU season record with a 72.9 stroke average. She had seven consecutive top-13 finishes, including three in the top 10, as part of eight top-20 results on the year. Her 13 rounds of par or better were one shy of a TCU mark. The senior from Odessa, Fla., had a team-best 81 birdies on the year.

* Annika Clark’s 74.6 career stroke average is a TCU record for players who have completed at least two years in the program. Her 74.3 mark in 2016-17 placed eighth for a season in TCU history. The junior from Highlands, Texas, was named to the 2017 Big 12 All-Tournament Team after tying for seventh with a 5-over-par 221.

* Brooke McDougald will be playing in her hometown of The Woodlands, Texas. The 2017 First-Team Academic All-Big 12 selection saw action in nine of 11 tournaments last season.

* Tiffany Breitenwischer played in the final three tournaments last season. The senior from Coppell, Texas, carded a career-low 73 in the final round of the NCAA Regional.

* Grace Do, the lone freshman in the lineup, will be making her collegiate debut. Like Breitenwischer, she is a graduate of Coppell High School.
