On the links, Corpuz posted a pair of wins as part of an incredible start to her senior season, posting six straight top 4 finishes, the best at USC in two decades. A 2021 ANNIKA Award finalist, she led USC in rounds in the 60s (six), rounds of par or better (15) and rounds under par (14), all career best efforts.
Corpuz, who reached No. 1 in the Golfweek rankings in mid-April, finished her career with 16 rounds in the 60s, fourth most in program history. Her 14 rounds under par are USC's most since Annie Park had 19 and Kyung Kim had 18 in 2014. Her career average of 72.90 is 13th best on USC's career list.
