The Badgers placed sixth at the 2014 Big Ten Championships last Sunday in French Lick, Ind. As a team, No. 49-ranked Wisconsin shot a 50-over par (316-305-293) at the French Lick Resort’s par-72, 6,017-yard Pete Dye course. That 293 was the best third-day score of the tournament.
The Badgers were led by freshman Brooke Ferrell, who finished fourth overall at the tournament thanks to a four-under par 68 in the third day. Ferrell’s placing was the best ever for a Wisconsin freshman at the Big Ten Championships and the best overall since 2004.
In total, the Badgers placed six golfers in the tournament’s top 50.
No. 31-ranked Michigan State and No. 25-ranked Ohio State tied to win the tournament, both with a total of 31-over par (895).
Wisconsin will find if its season will continue as the NCAA announces the Division I Women’s Golf Championships on the Golf Channel Monday at 5 p.m.
