June 13, 2006
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Golf Coaches Association of America announced on Tuesday that Arizona State golfer Jennifer Osborn was one of 12 golfers selected for the American team that will be competing against China in the inaugural USA-China Friendship Cup.
Team USA will consist of eight men and four women - all true freshmen - in the matches which will be held July 27-29 at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, Calif.
Osborn finished in the top 10 five times for the Sun Devils in 2005-06, including a first-place finish at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational and a second-place finish at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge. A Second-Team All-American and First-Team All-Pac-10 selection, Osborn also recorded a 12th-place finish at the NCAA East Regional.
The bi-annual Friendship Cup will be held in Beijing in the summer of 2008 just prior to the beginning of the Summer Olympics, and will return to the USA in 2010.
