Stanford women golfers will be out to defend their co-title

 

The annual Stanford Intercollegiate, which showcases many of the best women's golfers in the country, will be played Sunday through Tuesday at Stanford Golf Course. This year's 17-team field includes five programs ranked in the top 10, including No. 1 USC, No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 Northwestern, No. 6 Arizona and No. 9 Stanford.

Hosted by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Stanford is the defending NCAA champion, beating Baylor last season in the match-play finals for the first title in program history.

In last season's Stanford Intercollegiate, the Cardinal shared the crown with USC, both finishing with 54-hole scores of 15-under-par 837. Bronte Law of UCLA won medalist honors with an 8-under-par total of 205 and is back to defend.

As has been the case throughout the fall, Stanford will be represented by senior All-Americans Lauren Kim and Mariah Stackhouse, juniors Casey Danielson and Quirine Eijkenboom and sophomore Shannon Aubert.

Tee times begin Sunday and Monday at 8:30 a.m. and Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. off the No. 1 and No. 10 tee. The public is invited to attend and admission is free.

In addition to UCLA's Law of UCLA, the field also features 2012 winner Kyung Kim of USC. Four players are ranked in the top 10 in the country individually, including Karen Chung of USC (2), Jessica Vasilic of Arizona (3), Stephanie Lau of Northwestern (6) and Tiffany Chan of USC (10).

In last year's tourney, Stackhouse sank a 33-foot birdie putt on the final hole to help host Stanford (282-280-275) earn a share of the team title with two-time defending champion USC (284-279-274).
