PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif. - University of Houston junior Raegan Bremer fired a 71 at Palos Verdes Golf Club on Monday afternoon to finish second and qualify for a place at the 2014 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship.
With her impressive total, Bremer became the first member of Houston Women's Golf to compete at the nation's premier amateur event. The U.S. Women's Amateur Championship will be held Aug. 4-10 at Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N.Y.
Bremer's performance was nothing new to Houston fans in 2013-14. With Houston Women's Golf competing in its inaugural season, the Anaheim, Calif., native emerged as the Cougars' leader. She led Houston in seven of 10 events and finished with a 74.72 scoring average and eight rounds of par or better to pace the Cougars.
Bremer was a two-time American Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week selection and etched her name in the Houston records book forever in early April. Posting the only sub-par round on the final day, she earned medalist honors at the HBU Husky Invitational at Sugar Land's Riverbend Country Club, becoming the first individual champion in school history.
Bremer, a native of Anaheim, Calif., posted four top-10 finishes and finished fourth at the American Athletic Conference Championships. She was Houston's lone representative on the All-American Athletic Conference Team.
Under the leadership of head coach Gerrod Chadwell and assistant coach Mary Michael Maggio, the Cougars competed in their first year of existence in 2013-14 with four student-athletes. The coaching duo recently signed four award-winning newcomers and will lead the Cougars into team competition for the first time during the 2014-15 campaign.
