Pullman, WA -
What's Happening This Week: The Washington State women's golf team heads to Oregon to tee up against familiar competitors in the Oregon State Invitational in Corvallis, Ore., held at the par72 6,260 yard Trysting Tree Golf Club...the two-day tournament will begin Tuesday, Sept. 18, with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. with 36 holes of play and will end with the final 18 holes Tuesday, Sept.19.
The Field: The 18-team field will include: Boise State, Denver, Long Beach St., Fresno St., Colorado, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Cal Poly, UC Riverside, Eastern Washington, Idaho, , Nevada Reno, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Portland, Portland State, and Washington State.
Head Coach Walt Williams, On WSU's Team: "I think Amy [Eneroth] has a chance to win every time she goes out there. Tracy Borders is a very solid player. Diana Hong, I haven't seen in competition just yet, but she's certainly playing very well in daily play and can be a very special player with a little bit of experience and maturity. Our team is very talented, but also very young. So I'm not exactly sure what to expect."
Williams, On The Trysting Tree Golf Course: "We have been there a lot of times with both the men's and women's teams, so we are pretty familiar with the course. It's a very good golf course with very tough greens with a lot of undulation. Outside of the tricky greens, the course is very straight forward."
Last time at Trysting Tree for the Cougars: All of the experienced golfers that WSU is sending to the tournament finished in the top 25 last year at the Trysting Tree Golf Club...Oregon native Tracy Broders a sophomore at the time, tallied her first Top-10 finish of her career, shooting a 8-over 224 for the tournament leaving her in a tie for tenth place...Amy Eneroth a freshman took her first top-25 finish away from the tournament shooting a 14-over 230 tying her for 25th...Brooke Henderson a sophomore rounded out the cougars with a top-25 finish of her own, firing a 12-over 228 knotting her at the 18th position...Diana Hong and Mandy Parsons will be making their WSU debut Monday.
