No. 3 Stanford, with its complete team, begins postseason play on Monday when it travels to the 2019 Pac-12 Women’s Golf Championship at Palos Verdes Golf Club.

Junior All-Americans Andrea Lee and Albane Valenzuela sat out the Silverado Showdown after participating in other events.

Lee played in the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur and Valenzuela was one of two amateurs to make the cut in the ANA Inspiration, the LPGA Tour's first major championship of the year.

“We are excited about going back to Palos Verdes after our win there in February,” Stanford coach Anne Walker said. “The course will play differently and the wind looks like it will be up, so we are looking forward to the challenge ahead and doing our homework on Sunday so that we are ready come Monday. Andrea obviously has a ton of home course knowledge at Palos Verdes and we will lean on her for that as we prepare.”

The Cardinal has posted five top-five finishes, including each of the last four events. The Cardinal has won at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge and the Bruin Wave Invitational.

Lee (71.38 avg) and Valenzuela (72.44 avg) pace the Cardinal. Lee has posted a pair of wins this season, eight for her career, which equals the school record mark with Mhairi McKay (1994-97). Valenzuela has one win and three top-10 finishes this season.

The Cardinal is looking for its first conference title since 2014 and its third overall.
