Top-Ranked Bruins Set to Compete in Fall Preview

Sept. 23, 2007

With four players averaging at par or better, the top-ranked UCLA women's golf team enters the Fall Preview as the favorite at the University of New Mexico's Championship Course, Sept. 24-26. The tournament features the top 12 finishers from the 2007 NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

The Bruins, who were ranked fourth in the preseason, vaulted to the No.1 spot by soundly beating the three teams ranked above them at the season-opening Mason Rudolph Championship. UCLA recorded a 54-hole total of 13-under par 851 and defeated second-ranked Arizona State by 14 shots, No.1 Duke by 15 shots and No.3 USC by 26 strokes. On Sept. 17, the Bruins were elevated to the No.1 spot in the polls and received GolfWeek's Team of the Week honors.

Highlighting the UCLA lineup is a fivesome of players with a wealth of college and amateur golf experience.

Two-time All-American Tiffany Joh is a junior with the 2006 U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks and the 2007 Pac-10 Conference titles on her resume. She tied for third at the Mason Rudolph tournament after a first-round, seven-under par 65. Sophomore Sydnee Michaels won the 2007 NCAA East Regional championship, and 17-year old freshman Maria Jose Uribe captured the 2007 U.S. Women's Amateur crown in August. Junior captain Ryann O'Toole boasts more than 50 rounds of collegiate experience, and freshman Glory Yang placed seventh at the Mason Rudolph event.

The UNM Championship Course measures 6,069 yards with a par of 73. The 2008 NCAA Women's Golf Championship returns to this course in May.
