The University of South Florida women’s golf team plays its second tournament of the spring season this weekend at the Sir Pizza Cards Challenge, held at the par-72, 6,106-yard Weston Hills Golf Course outside Miami, Fla.
“We are looking forward to keeping the positive momentum from the last tournament and throughout the last week of practice as we head into this event,” USF head coach Marci Kornegay said. “Weston Hills used to be stops on both the LPGA and PGA tours and we are looking forward to playing the course and playing our best."
The Cards Challenge field features the Bulls along with Golfweek No. 43 and host Louisville, Kansas State, Cincinnati, Memphis, UNC-Wilmington, Arkansas State, Mississippi State, Miami, NC State, Texas State, FIU, Kansas, and East Tennessee State.
USF’s lineup will feature sophomore Shena Yang in the No. 1 spot, followed by Emily Van Etten, Kelli Pry, Karli Heimbecker and Ana Lopez. Yang brings the team’s lowest stroke average into the tournament at 73.8, and Van Etten is coming off her highest finish of the season, a tie for 28th, at the UCF Challenge.
The first round begins Sunday via shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. ET.
