    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Six Northwestern golfers, three each from the men's and women's Wildcats squads, have been named 2014-15 Big Ten Golfers to Watch, the conference office announced today.

    On the women's side, freshman Sarah Cho (San Diego, Calif./Torrey Pines) joins returning All-Big Ten honorees junior Kaitlin Park (Tustin, Calif.) and senior Hana Lee (Hacienda Heights, Calif./Wilson) on the Big Ten list. For the men, junior Josh Jamieson (St. Andrews, Scotland/High School of Dundee) and a pair of talented newcomers in Charles Wang (Beijing, China/Sarasota Christian School) and Dylan Wu (Medford, Ore./St. Mary's School) comprise NU's representation.

    Every single one of these Wildcats -- including the three who have yet to swing a club while wearing the N logo -- has had great accomplishments over the summer, which yields hope for a hot start to the 2014-15 collegiate season.

    For the women, Cho advanced to the Round of 32 at the 2014 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links, Lee claimed medalist honors at her U.S. Women's Open Qualifier and Park swept two Mission Hills Q-School Prep events, winning medalist honors in both against talented fields comprised of amateur and professional golfers.

    For the men, Jamieson had a summer to remember. After taking third in the Scottish U-21 Championship, he won six matches including a quarterfinal tilt against reigning British Amateur champion Bradley Neil to advance to the semifinals of the Scottish Amateur Championship. As for the newcomers, Wang opened the 2014 Florida Open with a 6-under 66 before finishing as the low amateur at the event and Wu enters school after showing the ability to go low with an eight-birdie, 5-under 65 at the 2014 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship this summer.

    The Northwestern women and head coach Emily Fletcher are coming off their second-straight 15th-place finish at the NCAA Championships and open the year Sept. 15-16 at the Dick McGuire Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M. The Wildcats host their annual home event, the Windy City Collegiate Classic, Oct. 6-7 at Westmoreland Country Club in Wilmette, Ill.

    The Northwestern men advanced to their 15th NCAA Regional field in head coach Pat Goss' 18-year tenure last season. The `Cats begin this year Sept. 21-22 at their home tournament, the Windon Memorial Classic, at Evanston Golf Club in Skokie, Ill.
