WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue women's golf team will close out its fall season this weekend at the Landfall Tradition, hosted by UNC Wilmington at the Country Club of Landfall Pete Dye Course today, Saturday and Sunday. The Boilermakers have finished in the top five of their last two tournaments and look to follow suit at the par-72, 6,204-yard course.
The 18-team tournament features some of the NCAA's best, including Alabama, Arizona, Duke and Oklahoma State. The remainder of the field is comprised of tournament hosts UNC Wilmington, Clemson, Duke, Iowa State, Michigan State, Mississippi, North Carolina, UNC Greensboro, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia and Wake Forest.
"We're looking for solid, consistent play out of our team this weekend as we close the fall and continuing to prepare for spring," said Purdue assistant coach Caroline Hegg. "Our ladies have shown they are capable of some impressive scores, and now we just have to show we can string a few of those together."
Juniors Aurora Kan and Johanna Tillstrom, and sophomores Vinh-Hoa Ngo and Brooke Beegle have all shown flashes of brilliance through the fall, each logging rounds under or near par through the first four tournaments. Ngo put up the Boilermakers' top round of the fall her last time out, posting a four-under 67 at the Hoosier Fall Invitational in Indianapolis.
