Wildcats Return to Home State For ASU Invitational

Mar 24, 2022

TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona Women's Golf will return to desert golf for the first time in two months when it tees off in the ASU Invitational at Papago Golf Club, beginning on Friday, March 25. The Wildcats are one of eight Pac-12 programs playing in Arizona State's home tournament. Senior Ya Chun Chang and junior Gile Bite Starkute will be the only members of the Arizona lineup that have previously competed in the event.

"Returning to a golf course we are very familiar with is a good feeling for our team heading into this weekend," said head coach Laura Ianello. "We are entering the home stretch of our season, and it is important for us to continue to develop and improve as a team. This weekend will be a great opportunity for our entire lineup to post some great scores."

Arizona will be without freshman Carolina Melgrati this weekend as she prepares to participate in the 2022 Augusta National Women's Amateur later this month. Chang has posted a top-15 finish in the ASU Invitational in her career while Starkute finished in the top 25 of the event last year.

The Wildcats and the rest of the field will play 54 holes over three days at the ASU Invitational before their final regular season tournament, the Silverado Showdown, next week in Napa, California.
