Women's Golf Competes At Landfall Tradition
Oct. 25, 2012
RALEIGH, N.C. - The NC State women's golf team closes out its fall schedule at the 11th annual Landfall Tradition hosted by UNC Wilmington this weekend (Oct. 26-28). The tournament will be held at the par-72, 6,138-yard Jack Nicklaus Course at the Country Club of Landfall.
This year's Landfall field features 17 teams, eight of which are ranked in the Golfstat Top 25. In addition to the 11th-ranked Wolfpack, No. 3 Arizona, No. 5 Duke, No. 14 Michigan State, No. 16 Oklahoma State, No. 18 Northwestern, No. 22 Purdue and No. 24 Notre Dame will be participating this weekend. The Boilermakers are the event's defending champions.
"Our main focus for this weekend is continuing to pace ourselves and remain patient," coach Page Marsh. "This is a golf course, that if you can get a really good round going, a score like 75 can be a good day because the course is so demanding, both physically and mentally."
Marsh also said that in addition to managing a difficult course and being mentally strong throughout the weekend, inclement weather is another factor that her team may have to deal with during the tournament. There is a 90 percent chance of rain predicted for Saturday's round and a 50 percent of rain on Sunday.
At last year's tournament, NC State finished tied for eighth with North Carolina at 68-over par, 932.
The Wolfpack is coming off a seventh-place showing at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational (Oct. 12-14) with a 25-over par, 889 team total. NC State's top individual performer was senior Amanda Baker, who fired a 3-over par, 219, to tie for ninth in the final individual standings.
