Women's Golf Signs Two
April 30, 2002
EUGENE, Ore. - Oregon women's golf coach Shannon Rouillard has signed Michelle Timpani and Therese Wenslow to national letters of intent to compete for the Ducks next season.
Timpani, a Gig Harbor, Wash., native who is a cousin of current Duck offensive lineman Joey Forster, finished third in the International Junior Golf Tour's 2002 Southwest Junior Championships held 4A championships competing for Gig Harbor High School.
'Michelle's best years of golf are still ahead of her because she only started playing at age 15,' said Rouillard. 'Michelle is a true diamond in the rough. She's excited about the opportunity to play at this level, and her work ethic and commitment to the game will be a tremendous asset to our team.'
Wenslow will become the first Swede to compete for Oregon in women's golf. A native of Bunkeflostrand, Sweden, Wenslow has spent the past three years competing for Klippan's High School, a specialized training school for athletes.
'Therese has gained a lot of competition experience throughout Europe because of her high school,' Rouillard said. 'She is just a solid all-around player. She's a strong hitter and that's exactly what this team needs next year. She is very excited to play in the United States at the Pac-10 level.'
