Ellie Slama Continues Outstanding Oregon State Career
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Ellie Slama has solidified her career as one of the greatest golfers in Oregon State history.
The senior from Salem, Ore., recently competed at the Augusta National Women's Amateur and concluded the event with a 9-over 74-79--153 at the Champions Retreat Golf Club.
The entire field played the world-famous Augusta National Golf Club for a practice round on Friday.
It's the third-straight year she was selected to play at the Augusta National Women's Amateur. The 2020 event was cancelled due to the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
"Qualifying for the ANWA is an elite accomplishment for amateur golfers," Oregon State head coach Dawn Shockley said. "The fact that Ellie has qualified both years of the ANWA is extraordinary.
"What she has done in her time at Oregon State has put our program on the map for up-and-coming future collegiate golfers. She has helped us become a mainstay in the national rankings. We're proud of not only how she carries herself on the golf course, but also in school and the Oregon State community."
Slama holds the Oregon State records for career scoring average, top-10 finishes in a season, lowest single-round score and lowest three-round score. She also holds the top three spots on the program's single-season scoring average list.
She was named an All-Pac-12 golfer following her sophomore campaign and became the first golfer in Oregon State history to be named Pac-12 Golfer of the Month.
