THE WORD ON THE CANES
The Miami women’s golf team has been a model of consistency throughout the 2016-17 season as it has finished in the top three in five of its six tournaments this year. The Hurricanes are coming off a fifth-place finish last week at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate, which marked the only time this season Miami has not finished in the top three of a tournament.

Miami enters this week’s Hurricane Invitational with a team average of 288.53 strokes per round.

The Hurricanes posted an impressive 2016 fall season during which they posted three top-three finishes, including a dominating performance at the Mary Fossum Invitational, as Miami won by 40 strokes. The Hurricanes finished the fall campaign with a 286.22 team average.
 
DEWI CONTINUES TO DOMINATE
The Canes are led by sophomore standout Dewi Weber, who has posted top-10 finishes in eight of her last nine tournaments dating back to the 2016 spring season. Weber is currently ranked No. 14 by Golfstat.com and is the fifth-highest ranked women’s golfer in the ACC.
Additionally, Weber claimed individual crowns at two of the three tournaments in the fall, winning outright titles at the Mary Fossum Invitational and the Betsy Rawls Invitational.
