The Texas women's golf team is circling the waters once more, this time led by a pair of freshman.
On Friday, July 7, 2023, Farah O'Keefe tees off on the fourth hole during the second round of the 2023 U.S. Women's Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, Calif.
The Texas women's golf team is ready for another NCAA Championship run this spring, thanks to a combination of outstanding rookies and astute veterans.
But first, head coach Ryan Murphy wants to cap the autumn semester on a high note by competing in this weekend's powerhouse Stanford Invitational in California
where the top-ranked Cardinal will host numerous rated teams, including the No. 5 Longhorns.
"I'm happy with what we've done so far this semester, and hopefully we can have a good one at Stanford," Murphy, the women's head coach since 2014, said.
"We have some depth on our team, and we've had some great performances."
O'Keefe and Kim, along with Westlake graduate and senior Bentley Cotton, have competed in all three autumn tournaments thus far.
Selina Liao, Cindy Hsu, and Bohyun Park have also joined the squad this season.
O'Keefe began her collegiate career with two top-five finishes and was just named Big 12 women's golfer of the month.
She demonstrated her poise earlier this month when she was runner-up at the Windy City Classic in Chicago, where she tied Texas' individual 18-hole scoring record with an 8-under-par 64 in the first round.
