Lady Tigers Travel to Louisville for 2011 Wild Eggs Cardinal Cup
Sept. 18, 2011
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Nearly two weeks after having their first event of the season prematurely ended due to heavy rains, the University of Memphis women's golf team is prepared to make the nearly 400-mile trek to Louisville, Ky., for the 2011 Wild Eggs Cardinal Cup hosted by Louisville.
The 54-hole stroke-play competition will take place at the U of L's Cardinal Club, a par-72, 6,253-yard bent grass private club located in Simpsonville, Ky., an eastern suburb of Louisville.
"I am very excited about the Wild Eggs event," said head coach Beth Harrelson. "After having last week's competition cut short due to rain, I am excited to get the girls out there and compete. One thing is for sure, we will be pushed."
The U of M will play alongside some familiar faces throughout the 14 team competition including familiar foes Cincinnati, Penn State, East Carolina and Middle Tennessee State, among others.
"This competition will give us a good understanding of where we are at. We need to focus in and be mentally tough," said Harrelson. "This tournament will test our toughness."
Competition is slated to begin on Monday, Sept. 19 with an 8:15 a.m. shotgun start. Teams will play 36 holes on Monday and conclude the competition on Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the final 18 holes of play.
