Women’s golf heads to last fall event

Last Time
The Hoosiers had the IU Fall Invitational at Crooked Stick Golf Club. They placed fifth.

The Set-up
The team caps its fall season with a 36-hole stroke play event at the Challenge at Onion Creek in Austin, Texas.

The Context
IU will be among 13 teams, including Texas Tech, Michigan and Xavier. Onion Creek is a par-70 course that had the first Senior PGA Tour event in 1978 and the LPGA Tour Event from 1999 to 2001.

Joining Senior Co-Captain Kristtini Cain in the lineup will be freshman Elizabeth Tong who finished tied for 15th at the IU Fall Invitational, her third top-25 finish this season.

Also competing in the event are junior Co-Captain Kate Coons, junior Rosie Davies, junior Pamela Burneski and freshman Sophie Hayashi as an individual.

Quote of Note
“It’s the third year we have gone down there (Onion Creek), and we’re very excited for this year because it’s the second year on the same course,” IU Coach Clint Wallman said. “We’ll have more of a track record of what we’re doing and how the course plays.”

Notable Number
Three. There have been three weeks of practice since the Hoosiers last event.
