Women's Golf Heads to the Land of Enchantment
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- No. 22 Arizona Women's Golf will participate in the 42nd annual Branch Law Firm Dick McGuire Invitational this weekend, playing in the University of New Mexico's tournament for the first time since 2017. The event, annually hosted in the Fall, was pushed back to spring this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We are excited to play in this prestigious event again and compete against a quality field," said head coach Laura Ianello. "Our program has a lot of great history in this event, and it will be a good challenge for our team to play outside the state of Arizona for the first time in two months."
The Wildcats are leaving desert golf for the first time since sending individuals to the Lamkin Invitational in Southern California during the first week of February. Arizona finished eighth in its last team event, the ASU Invitational, as senior Yu-Sang Hou posted a top-20 finish.
Hou and her sister Vivian Hou competed in the Augusta National Women's Amateur in Augusta, Georgia last week following the ASU Invitational.
This event is played at UNM's Championship Golf Course, which is a 6,317-yard, par 72 course as the Wildcats will be the first team off the tee on Sunday, April 11 alongside the host Lobos.
