Hannah Wood of Highlands Ranch will take a little momentum into her final semester of college golf.
The Big 12 announced on Wednesday that Wood and Texas’ Sophie Schubert shared the conference’s Women’s Golf of the Month honor for November.
Wood, who qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open last year, earned the award thanks to finishing a season-best fourth place individually in early November at the Battle at the Beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The University of Oklahoma senior, who won the CWGA Stroke Play in 2014, posted a three-round total of 4-under-par 209, helping the Sooners place second in the team standings, three shots behind winner UCLA.
The showing by Wood (pictured in a Big 12/OU graphic) was her second individual top-10 of the fall schedule as she placed sixth in the Schooner Fall Classic in September.
Wood was one of two Coloradans to finish in the top five at the Battle at the Beach as Jennifer Kupcho of Westminster was the individual runner-up at 7-under 206. Kupcho was recognized as the ACC’s co-Women’s Golfer of the Month for October.
