Husky Women's Golfers Travel to Scotland
Sept. 11, 2003
Seattle - The Washington women's golf team heads to Scotland for a week of play at some of that countries finest golf course as a tune up to the 2003-04 season. The Huskies are scheduled to depart Seattle on Friday, Sept. 12 and depart for the States on Monday, Sept. 22. The Huskies will headquarter in Dundee while in Scotland.
A total of seven players will make the trip to Scotland. In addition to veterans Sung Ea Lee, Paige Mackenzie and Lindsay Morgan, Washington will travel four freshmen. Ashley Bickerton, Courtney McCracken, Amber Prang and Amy Wang will be representing the Huskies for the first time.
For Mackenzie, the trip will be a return to the sport after missing most of the last season due to a back injury. She started playing again in August.
'I know Paige is excited to get back on the course and she said she has played well in the limited times she has swung a club in the past few weeks,' says Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'I've told her not to push it, just play as much as she feels comfortable. We're very excited to have her back this year.
Mackenzie will join the team in Scotland. She stayed in Great Britain after her older brother Brock, a senior on the Husky men's team, recently competed in the Walker Cup competition in England.
During the stay in Scotland, the Huskies will play St. Andrew's Bay (Torrence Course), St. Andrews Jubilee Course, Carnoustie, Stirling Institute, Kings Barn, Kintyre Course at Turnberry and Gleneagles.
Washington's final two rounds will feature a match with Stirling University.
