Boutier will represent France, while Cangrejo will play for Colombia during the championship. The four-day event features teams of two or three golfers, who each play 18 holes of stroke play over four days. In each round, the total of the two lowest scores from each team constitutes the team score for the round. The four-day (72-hole) total is the team’s score for the championship.
A product of Montrouge, France, Boutier, is coming off a tied for 25th place finish in her collegiate debut at the Cougar Classic earlier this month. The 5-4 freshman is a very accomplished international golfer. She won the European Ladies Amateur with a 16-under-par ledger over the summer, while finishing second in qualifying at the Ladies British Open Amateur.
Cangrejo, who is from Bogota, Colombia, is a two-time letterwinner with the Blue Devils with eight career top 20 finishes. She competed in the North & South Women’s Amateur over the summer and advanced to the semifinals.
