The defending national champion and No. 1-ranked USC Trojans lead the 15-team field of the nation's top women's golf teams Monday-Wednesday at the Tulsa Country Club.
Texas, USC and Vanderbilt had the first tee times this morning at 8 am on hole #1. Alabama, Arizona State and Tulsa started at 8:40 am, followed by Arkansas, Oklahoma State and Duke at 9:36 am, all from hole #1. Arizona, Georgia and Tulane began the day on hole #10 at 8 am, followed by Stanford, Oklahoma and North Carolina on hole #10 as well.
The Fall Preview gives the nation's top teams the opportunity to play the national championship course. The NCAA Championship returns to the Tulsa Country Club in the spring, May 20-23.
The 54-hole, three-day tournament course plays to 6,136 yards and is a par 70. College golf returns to the Tulsa Country Club, which was the host site of the 1999 NCAA Women's Golf Championship, in which Duke held on for the team title.
Golfweek recently announced its top-20 women's golf programs as defending champion USC comes in ranked No. 1 for the 2013-14 campaign. Duke is ranked No. 2 in the country, followed by Alabama and Oklahoma. Arkansas is ranked sixth nationally, while Arizona, Vanderbilt and Arizona State round out the top-10 teams with rankings of eighth, ninth and 10th.
USC recorded a 72-hole total of 19-under par 1,133 to break the previous NCAA championship record set by UCLA in 2004 by a whopping 15 strokes as the Trojans captured the 2013 NCAA title in Athens, Georgia by 21 strokes last May. The win washed away a bad taste of losing a five-stroke lead to Alabama at the 2012 NCAA championship.
The top-7 individual performers nationally will test the TCC course in the likes of No. 1-ranked Annie Park of USC. Park, only a sophomore, is also the defending NCAA individual champion having captured medalist honors at the national event with a 10-under par score of 278.
