NCAA golf champion Brooke Matthews of Arkansas

When Brooke Matthews posted the photo above on Instagram, she captioned it, "Senior year?? Let’s do this!!" Well, guess what: Brooke is doing it.

Brooke recently won the 2021 Blessings Collegiate Invitational, the University of Arkansas' home tournament in Fayetteville. Matthews led Arkansas to the team championship by a whopping 19 strokes over second-place UCLA. And in the individual competition, Brooke won the tournament for the second year in a row. She carded rounds of 72-66-74 for a 212 total, 4-under par — the only player in the field to break par. Her 66 in the second round was a Blessings course record.

Matthews went into the Blessings ranked No. 18 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, at No. 13 in the Golfweek Amateur Rankings, and at No. 1 in the Golfweek Women's College Rankings.

Matthews' Blessings Collegiate victory came a couple weeks after she won the Charleston Cougar Classic by 13 strokes, setting an NCAA scoring record for women in the process. Brooke fired rounds of 63, 64, 64 to finishing an NCAA-record 25-under par. The previous record was "only" 19-under.

Yep, that is doing it.
