Camryn Carreon Wins the 2022 Women’s Stroke Play

BRYAN – UTSA senior Camryn Carreon rose to victory after being solo second heading into Sunday’s final round at the Women’s Stroke Play. The San Antonio native finished at 3-under par 213 for the 54-hole championship, to clench the title.

“I am feeling pretty accomplished,” Carreon said happily. “This course will give it to you, but I just stuck to my lines and stayed with it. I’m just really happy.”

Carreon started the final round off by birdieing the first two holes, as well as the sixth one, and ended up carding a 1-under 35. As the back nine came, Carreon and second round leader Ellie Szeryk, were neck and neck.

“This was a good match,” said Carreon. “Ellie and I were back and forth a ton, which made it a lot of fun.”

A strong mentality was key for the leaders as they headed into the back nine. Carreon was able to stick to her game plan, resorting back to patience, and dropped four birdies on the back nine, making it seven birdies total for the day.

“I was sticking it pretty tight, trying to stay calm and stick to the right speed on the greens,” Carreon recalled. “When those birdie putts fell, I just used it as momentum.”

This is a championship that Carreon will never forget, as she been striving to etch her name onto the trophy for years. Having her father as her caddy this week just puts the cherry on the top.

“I have been playing this event since high school and have been close, but was never able to win it,” the champion remarked. “It feels awesome to finally win this tournament, especially with having my dad caddying for me.”

The TGA extends its greatest appreciation to the Traditions Club at Texas A&M, including all of its staff and members, for all of their hard work in delivering such a phenomenal championship week.

An additional thank you to General Manager Bill Slade and Head Golf Professional Bryan Minnick for all of their efforts in producing an awesome week at Traditions Club.
