Another Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association star and local high school standout is headed to play college golf. Brynn Kort, who recently helped lead the Coronado Cougars to their 3rd-straight Nevada state high school title has committed to Texas A&M.

“The biggest thing I think about is they are a very family-oriented team and we are more than just a score to them,” Kort said. “The coaches care about each of us and that was the biggest thing that drew me to them. I narrowed it down to my top three, which was pretty hard to do and it was a very tough decision. It was between Texas A&M,  ASU and Ole Miss. I took visits to all three and it took a little bit to figure out where I wanted to go, but I knew in my heart that I wanted to be at A&M.”.

Kort will be an Aggie in 2025, so still has some work left to do in high school. Kort won the Nevada State 5A title in 2022. She finished fourth in 2023. She played for Head Coach Joe Sawaia.

“it is amazing to be able to win with your team and I know we all put in a ton of work, so it’s nice to have our hard work pay off,” Kort said. “It was also cool to be part of Coach Joe’s last year. He walked his final holes with me, so that is something I will always remember.”

Kort will also look back fondly on her days with the SNJGA, once they official conclude when she graduates and moves on to college.

“The SNJGA means a lot because they’ve done a lot for me and a lot for everybody and they’ve grown the game a ton,” Kort said. “There is a lot of talent, so it means a lot to be able to play against the girls that I know.”

Kort is now working on her game and will be ready in 2025 when she makes the jump to college. She has clear goals in mind, short term and long term.

“I’m playing pretty well right now and trending in the right direction,” Kort said. “I have a little break between now and December. I have been getting a little bit stronger in the gym and working on my game. I also want to get my World Amateur Golf Rankings up and qualify for the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. Then, once I get to A&M, go win a national championship with my team and be an All-American.”
