Ally McDonald had just one thing on her mind when she came to Mississippi State, and that was to help the Bulldogs compete at a high level.
The Fulton native has been a big reason why the Bulldogs have made appearances at the NCAA Championship the last two years. She is hoping for a third-straight appearance and a national title in her senior year, but before that comes to fruition, McDonald has some personal business to take care of this summer.
She tees off today at the U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in Pinehurst, N.C. This comes two weeks after helping lead Team USA to a victory in the Curtis Cup, the premier women's amateur golf tournament.
"I am very, very blessed to play in the Curtis Cup and to have qualified for the U.S. Women's Open, but that wasn't my main priority when I came to Mississippi State," McDonald said. "It is so good to see our team excel like we have always wanted."Â
