AUBURN - The No. 28 Auburn women's golf team travels to Greensboro, N.C., this weekend for its final regular-season tournament. Competing in what Golf Digest calls the toughest field of the spring, Auburn will play in the Bryan National Collegiate, Friday through Sunday.
Hosted by Wake Forest and North Carolina-Greensboro, the Bryan National Collegiate is a 54-hole tournament played at the Bryan Park Golf and Enrichment Center Champions Course in Greensboro, N.C. The par 72 course will play at 6,386 yards for the tournament.
The field of 17 teams features nine teams currently featured in the GolfWorld/WGCA top 25 rankings. Auburn will face No. 3 Duke, No. 5 North Carolina, No. 6 Florida, No. 9 Arkansas, No. 11 Vanderbilt, No. 15 Georgia, No. 17 N.C. State, No 20. Virginia and No. 25 Michigan State.
"It's an amazing field," said head coach Kim Evans. "We'll have to play golf. We're excited and ready to go."
Other teams competing are Florida State, Louisville, UNC Greensboro, UNC Wilmington, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wake Forest.
"I feel like there will be a little bit of a different energy since Victoria was very successful last season and in the fall," said Evans. "We're looking forward to her impact this week."
Auburn tees off Friday at 8:05 a.m. CT from the No. 10 tee alongside Florida and Georgia. Live stats will be available at www.golfstat.com.
