EVANSTON, Ill. - The Northwestern women's golf team is spending its spring break in the San Diego area, playing two events on the west coast. The Wildcats first face San Diego State on Thursday, March 28, in a dual before returning to tournament action Sunday-Tuesday at The Farms Invitational, hosted by San Diego State University.
Played in the Par-72, 6,202 course at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., the 15-team field includes eight programs ranked in the top 50 by Golfstat.com. Northwestern is one of those eight teams, coming in at No. 29 in the latest poll. Top-ranked USC and No. 8 Arizona are two of the higher-ranked teams scheduled to compete in The Farms Invitational.
This week is a homecoming for Northwestern junior Devon Brown, who is originally from Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., and attended high school at Cathedral Catholic. Sophomore Brittany Mai is from Poway, Calif., which also is near the San Diego area. Two other Wildcats are from California as sophomore Hana Lee hails from Hacienda Heights (Los Angeles area) while freshman Kaitlin Park's hometown of Tustin is near Anaheim.
Lee, Park and Brown, along with senior Lauren Weaver and freshman Suchaya Tangkamolprasert are scheduled to compete for the Wildcats at The Farms Invitational. Freshman Elizabeth Szokol will play as an individual.
NU has been idle from competition since March 10 when the Wildcats placed sixth at the Clover Cup in Mesa, Ariz. Lee led the way for NU, recording her fourth top-10 finish of the season, tying for fifth with a 1-under 215, which was a stroke off of her career best. She set a new career low for 18 holes, and tied a program record, with a 6-under 66 in the first round of the tournament.
