WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue golfers Kishi Sinha and Aurora Kan will compete in the third annual Pure Silk Women's Collegiate Team Championship presented by the National Golf Coaches Association on Tuesday, July 31, at the Wedgewood Golf and Country Club in Powell, Ohio.

More than 50 two-person teams will compete in the unique amateur event that runs July 31 through Aug. 2. Each team will pair players from the same university in a 54-hole stroke-play event.

The format of the championship is alternate shot on the first day (July 31); best ball on the second day (Aug. 1) and aggregate score of the two players on the final day (Aug. 2). Teams are comprised of players from all levels of collegiate golf including Division I, II and III programs.

Sinha, a redshirt senior from Noida, India, competed in all 11 events last season, averaging 76.5 strokes per round. Her best finish of the year was a tie for eighth at the Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate. She set a career low with a 69 in the final round of the Knights & Pirates Invitational on April 10.

A freshman last season, Kan was a member of the five-player Boilermaker squad that earned a ninth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. The Chichester, Pa., native averaged 78.4 strokes per round and carded her best round of the season in the third round of the NCAA Championships in Franklin, Tenn.

Wedgewood Golf and Country Club is an 18-hole private facility, considered one of the most challenging courses in central Ohio. Opened in 1991, the golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.

On Monday, July 30, a collegiate-amateur golf event will take place, beginning with a 2:30 p.m. shotgun start. Proceeds from this event will benefit A Kid Again, an Ohio based charity that provides fun-filled group activities for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

Tickets to the team championship are free and open to the public. Play will begin each day at 7:30 a.m. ET with tee times on holes No. 1 and No. 10.
