Bruins Prepare for PING/ASU Invitational

March 30, 2006

The second-ranked UCLA women's golf team prepares for the 41st Annual PING/ASU Invitational, Mar. 31-Apr. 2 at the Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, AZ.

UCLA is the top-ranked team in the 16-team field, which includes No. 3 Arizona State, No. 5 Pepperdine, No. 6 USC and No. 10 UNLV. Nine teams in the field are ranked in GolfWeek's Top 25 this week.

"We're looking forward to starting our championship segment (at the ASU Invitational)," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "We've been very successful here in the past and want to follow up our win in Mexico with another here."

Three weeks ago in Guadalajara, Mexico, UCLA won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational by six shots, defeating top-ranked Duke, USC and Arizona State.

The Bruins won the ASU/PING event outright in 2004 and tied for first last season with host Arizona State. They have finished no worse than fourth for four straight years and set a single round team record in 2004 with a score of 282 (-6). (The record has since been broken.)

Two freshmen are the Bruins' top-ranked players heading into this weekend's tournament. Tiffany Joh, ranked sixth nationally this week by GolfWeek, boasts a team-leading 72.0 scoring average with five Top 20 finishes in five appearances. Jane Park is ranked eighth with a 72.6 average and a team-leading six rounds under par.

Sophomore Amie Cochran is ranked 19th nationally with a scoring average of 73.4 and senior Susie Mathews, a two-time All-American, is ranked 46th with a 73.9 stroke average.
