Women's Golf in Wilmington, N.C., for NCAA Championship

By A. Boggs

The women's golf team is in Wilmington and ready to take on the nation's best at the NCAA Championship this Tuesday through Friday at the Country Club of Landfall. Vanderbilt will tee off at 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Here's a photo of the team at dinner on Monday night. Longhorn was the call, and it was a good one. Anna Leigh Keith's parents, Jim and Laura, made the trip up from Moultrie, Ga., and joined us for the meal.

After dinner, the coaches and players attended a rules meeting on the campus of UNC Wilmington, which is a only a few miles away from the hotel.

This tournament is a huge deal here in Wilmington. The word on the street is that there are over 400 volunteers for the tournament, with a waiting list! From all accounts from our coaches and players, the golf course is in excellent condition, and it will play very fair this week. They told me to not expect a lot of low numbers from everyone in the field, but they love their chances this week. A lot of confidence with this group.

Stay tuned to the blog and for periodic updates from the course throughout the week. Live scoring of the tournament is also available on the website and on
