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.
Illinois claimed its seventh Big Ten title in the last eight years after shooting an event record 838 in the 2016 Big Ten Men’s Golf Championships at Victoria National. The crown marks the Fighting Illini’s 14th in program history, and it gives them the automatic berth to the NCAA tournament.
