Women's golf to compete in Irish Invitational

The IU women’s golf team will participate in its third of five fall tournaments this weekend at the William K. Warren Irish Invitational in South Bend.

The Hoosiers are coming off a 15th-place finish at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational and look to rebound in South Bend, the site of this years regional meet.

“It’s going to be a really good chance to see what the golf course is going to play like,” IU coach Clint Wallman said. “Also, the field will be pretty solid.”

IU will be joined by 12 other schools, including three Big Ten teams. The tournament will begin Saturday with 36 holes and end with an 18-hole round to finish Sunday. IU will be paired with Maryland and Kentucky on the first day.

“I’m expecting a regional-type setup,” Wallman said.

The Hoosiers will be led by sophomore Kate Coons in the No. 1 spot, followed by fellow sophomores Pamela Burneski and Jacqueline Yanch. 

Also participating for IU will be junior Kristtini Cain and Lindsay Gahm. Senior Lauren Giesecke will compete as an individual.

Gahm, a freshman from Louisville, Ky., will be making her collegiate debut this weekend.
“I think this golf course really fits her game,” Wallman said. “She hits it a long way, and I’m really excited to see her play.”
