LEXINGTON, Ky. – In preparation for the Kentucky women's golf team's return to the course in late January for the all-important spring season, UKathletics.com will be featuring a profile on each of the Wildcats in the "Meet the Wildcats" series.

Rose has been a steady and improving player from the moment she arrived on campus. She has played in 13 career tournaments, including all four in the fall.
