Tulsa Women Golfers Open Season In Japan
Aug. 25, 2000
The Hurricane is one of six schools representing the United States at the Topy Cup, including two women's teams -- Tulsa and Texas -- and four men's squads -- California, Kansas, New Mexico and Texas. The schools will join 12 Japanese squads, including eight men and four women's teams, in the 18-team Topy Cup
Tulsa is led by two-time first-team All-American Stacy Prammanasudh. The junior was the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year last season, as well as finishing ranked fifth nationally in the MasterCard Collegiate Rankings. In 22 career tournaments, Prammanasudh has placed among the top-20 in all but one event.
Fellow junior Dani Mallon placed among the top-20 in three tournaments a year ago, while earning all-conference honors. Sophomore Maiko Senda will also represent the Golden Hurricane at the Japan event. Senda had her best performance last year at the WAC Championship finishing in second place.
Newcomers Suzie Fisher and Julie Tvede round out the Hurricane team for the first tournament of the season. Fisher, a freshman from Coffs Harbor, Australia, won the Australian Women Amateur Championship in 1999, while Tvede is a freshman from Gentofte, Denmark and has been a member of the Danish Ladies National team.
Following the Topy Cup, the Hurricane returns to action, Sept. 21-23, at the Comcast/Dick McGuire Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
