Stanford Readies for Pac-10 Championships
April 16, 2010
STANFORD, Calif. - The first of three 'majors' on Stanford's schedule gets underway on Monday at the Eugene (Ore.) Country Club with the playing of the Pacific-10 Conference Championships.
Teams will play 18-holes, Monday through Wednesday on the par-72, tree-lined Eugene Country Club, which will play to 6,203 yards for this event. Tee off times begin at 8:30 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday and 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
With four of the top 10 teams in women's golf residing in the conference, the competition level will serve as a solid barometer for the Cardinal as they look forward to the NCAA West Regionals at Stanford Golf Course.
UCLA and Arizona State are ranked first and second, respectively, in the Golfstat national poll, while the teams flip places in the poll released by Golfweek. USC is ranked fifth in both polls while Arizona is ranked seventh by Golfstat and sixth by Golfweek.
Stanford is ranked 14th by Golfstat and 13th by Golfweek.
Freshman Sally Watson, coming off a solid eighth place finish at the PING/ASU Invitational last week in Tempe, is Stanford's top-rated individual player, checking in at No. 28 in the Golfweek rankings.
Stanford, which finished sixth at last year's Pac-10 Championships held at Stanford Golf Course, last won the conference title in 1999. The Cardinal finished second the last time the event was held at the Eugene Country Club in 2000.
