Learn Golf From Watching Arizona Wildcats Women Today in NCAA Final Four Match vs. Duke

As we wake up today, the University of Arizona women’s golf team again is in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament.

The 2018 National Champions were led by seniors Haley Moore and Bianca Pagdanganan. The two won both of their afternoon matches Tuesday as Arizona squeezed past USC 3 matches to 2. They advanced to a matchup with Duke in the national semifinal, which can be seen on Golf Channel at 9 a.m., today.

I want you to pay special attention to a couple basic fundamentals as you are watching the broadcast that can help make you a better player in your own golf game.

Pay special attention to how all the ladies finish their golf swings. In every swing, the players will be finishing with their belt buckles facing towards their target as she is doing in the picture above. This is a great tip to pass along to any junior golfer.

The next thing to look for is how the ladies putt. Here is an example of Moore making the match clinching putt to advance Arizona to the Final 4.

It is a very simple motion. Watch how still she keeps he head and how long they hold the finish position with the putter after the ball has been hit.

You can learn a lot by watching these outstanding players and these are great tips to pass on to any junior golfer.
