The fourth-ranked UCLA women's golf team used a two-hour delay to regroup and reclaim its swagger to win the first Pac-10/SEC Challenge at the Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto Sunday.

The Bruins posted a team score of six-over par 290 for a 54-hole score of 856 (+4) to win by 11 shots over Alabama (867, +15). When play was called at 10:40 a.m. local time because of unplayable conditions, the Bruins held a precarious one-stroke lead. They managed to refocus during the stoppage and increased their lead to the winning margin by the end of the round.

USC captured third place at 875 (+23), followed by Arizona at 877 (+25) and Auburn at 879 (+27). Both Alabama and Auburn entered the tournament ranked first and second nationally.

Individually for the Bruins, junior All-American Stephanie Kono fired a final round 68 (-3) and placed second, one shot behind USC's Sophie Popov. Popov posted a 67 (-4) in the final round. Senior Glory Yang finished sixth at even par 213 after her round of 73 (+2). Freshman Ani Gulugian tied for 13th at 217 (+4) and sophomore Tiffany Lua tied for 16th at 218 (+5). Gulugian posted a 76 (+5) and Lua carded a score of 73 (+2). Junior Brianna Do tied for 50th at 227 (+14) following a final round of 79 (+8).
