Oklahoma City University golfer Maddi Kamas and her partner Lua Pousa Dacasa, a freshman at Nova Southeastern University, have been given an exemption by the United States Golf Association into the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship.

The USGA grants some exemptions for teams if both players are ranked in the top 400 in World Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR). Kamas was ranked 400 and Dacasa 250. The 2024 championship is scheduled May 11-15 at famed Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, designed by A.W. Tillinghast.

A sophomore accounting major from Kingfisher, Kamas was named the 2023 NAIA Women’s Golfer of the Year. She  is now a two-time NAIA First-Team All-American, was twice named NAIA Golfer of the Week, was selected as Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Year and was the individual medalist at the SAC tournament.

In 2022-2023, Kamas won three tournaments while also finishing second twice in the teams’ nine total tournaments. She scored an NAIA best 73.50 scoring average and 79 birdies – which is second best in the country. At the 2023 NAIA National Championship at TPC Deere Run, Kamas finished tied for 14th with a total of 306 include a low round of 72 for the Stars who finished third in the team standings.

The accolades follow a breakout freshman season in 2021-2022 when Kamas finished tied for third at the NAIA Championship following three wins, nine top-five showings and four rounds below 70. That season, Kamas won the SAC individual title, and grabbed three SAC player of the week awards and one NAIA golfer of the week nod.
