WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The seventh-ranked Purdue women's golf team is set to compete in its 11th-straight NCAA Championships on Tuesday. The Boilermakers arrived in Wilmington, N.C., over the weekend and have participated in two practice rounds at the Country Club of Landfall, the site of the 2010 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship.
Purdue will tee off from the 10th tee and will play alongside Auburn and Texas in the first round beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Boilermakers played the par-72, 6,368-yard Pete Dye designed course last fall in the Landfall Tradition, an NCAA Preview and finished in sixth-place.
Twelve of the top-13 teams according to Golfweek will compete as part of the 24-team field at the NCAA Championships, including top-ranked UCLA.
The Boilermakers will be guided by five-time Big Ten Coach of the Year head coach Devon Brouse. The five-player roster that is competing at the NCAA finals is the same five that led Purdue to a third-place finish at the NCAA Central Regional in Columbus, Ind., - juniors Numa Gulyanamitta, Thea Hoffmeister and Maude-Aimee LeBlanc and freshmen Laura Gonzalez-Escallon and Paula Reto.
