Junior Sierra Brooks is in first place at Cougar Classic with a 7-under opening round. 

Men’s, women’s teams begin seasons

The women’s team was ranked 12th in the nation, and junior Sierra Brooks was named a Golfweek Preseason Second-Team All-American heading into the first tournament of the fall season. Both have proven themselves to be worthy of their preseason praise following their first day in their opening competition. The Gators are in the lead at the Cougar Classic after one round and Brooks is atop the individual leaderboard.

Sophomore Andy Zhang finally broke through and won his first individual championship in 2018.

A bolt from the blue: Zhang wins individual SEC championship

On the third playoff hole of the SEC Championship, UF sophomore Andy Zhang had a chance at individual victory over Ole Miss’ Cecil Wegener with a putt just a couple feet away from the hole. He calmly sank the putt, pumped his fist, shook Wegener’s hand and embraced his coach, J.C. Deacon. “You got it, you won,” Deacon said in between Zhang’s “Oh my God.”
