Women's Golf Team Travels to Las Vegas

Oct. 29, 2006

The third-ranked UCLA women's golf team prepares to defend its title this week at the Las Vegas Founders Collegiate Showdown, Oct. 30-Nov. 1.

The 54-hole event will be played at Anthem Country Club in Henderson, Nev., a par 72 course over 6,150 yards. The Bruins won this event last season with a three-round score of 840 (-24), a school record.

The 18-team field includes nine teams ranked among the nation's Top 25, according to the latest GolfWorld coaches poll (Oct. 25). The Bruins are the highest ranked team in the field, followed by fourth-ranked Arizona State, No, 10 Pepperdine and No. 11 Arizona.

The UCLA lineup features senior Hannah Jun, who won the individual title at this event last season, firing a final round 66 (-6). Jun's total of 206 (-10) set a 54-hole UCLA scoring record.

Sophomore Tiffany Joh leads the Bruins in scoring after three events this season with a 72.5 average and four rounds under 70. Teammate Ryann O'Toole has recorded a pair of Top 20 finishes in three events while averaging 73.5.

Freshman Sydnee Michaels is averaging 73.4 strokes per round with a pair of Top 25 finishes. Freshman Lalita Boonnoppornkul rounds out the lineup with an average of 81.0.
