Keeping score


Score, a birdie on the par-5 18th, for Arizona’s Haley Moore on the first extra hole as she rolled in a 4-foot putt to defeat Alabama’s Lakareber Abe in the anchor match Wednesday to deliver the team title to Arizona. The Wildcats defeated the Crimson Tide, 3-2, in the match-play finals at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla., for the program’s third NCAA title (results). Moore, a junior from Escondido, Calif., went 3-0-0 for Arizona as the Pac-12 Conference claimed a fourth consecutive national title, all in the match-play era (Arizona State, 2017; Washington, 2016; and Stanford, 2015).
