Northwestern wins second straight Big Ten women's golf title

For the second straight year, Northwestern and Ohio State shared the Big Ten Championship in women’s golf after shooting a three-round total of 12-under par 852 in the 2016 Big Ten Championships at The Fort Golf Resort. Due to the Big Ten’s tiebreaking procedures, the Wildcats earned the conference’s automatic berth to the NCAA Championship.

The Wildcats and Buckeyes were followed by third-place Purdue (859), and Illinois and Wisconsin, which tied for fourth-place with a team score of 862.

Purdue’s August Kim won the individual Big Ten title, shooting a 9-under-par 207 (69-71-67). Ohio State’s Katja Pogacar finished second (208), followed by Wisconsin’s Brooke Ferrell in third place (209), and Illinois’ Bing Singhsumalee, Iowa’s Amy Ihm and Northwestern’s Stephanie Lau in a fourth-place tie. All six players earned a spot on the Big Ten All-Championships team.

Northwestern’s Hannah Kim was honored with the Mary Fossum Award, honoring the conference’s player with the lowest stroke average (-.76) relative to par this season.
