Hou Earns WGCA All-America Honors
TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona Women's Golf senior Yu-Sang Hou has been named a Second Team All-American by the Women's Golf Coaches Association following her spring season that ended in the semifinals of match play at the NCAA Championships. Hou's senior campaign peaked in the postseason, which included some of the best rounds of golf in her career.
The native of Taiwan finished her final season as a Wildcat with a 71.72 scoring average over 25 rounds in eight events. Hou began her shortened spring season by shooting par or lower in eight of her first 12 rounds before a strong postseason run. Beginning with the Pac-12 Championships, the senior shot rounds of 71, 68 and 70 to tie her career-low, 54-hole score of 209 on her way to finishing in third place overall.
Hou's flair for dramatic postseason runs continued at NCAA Regionals at Stanford where she shot a blistering final round 66 to advance her team to the NCAA Championships. The third-round score of 66 was the lowest round of her career, put her into fourth place in the leaderboards and bookended the second lowest individual tournament score at a NCAA Regional in program history.
She went on to lead Arizona in scoring in stroke play of the NCAA Championships, and helped make the Wildcats the only team in the nation to advance to match play for a third consecutive championship.
Hou capped her college career with 32 events with 96 rounds plays for a career scoring average of 72.48. She finished in the top ten in 13 of the events she played in and top-20 in 24 of them, which included her individual win at the 2018 Pac-12 Preview tournament in Hawai'i. A Second Team WGCA All-American in 2019 and 2020, Hou was also a member of Arizona's 2018 national championship team.
