Sept. 10, 2011

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Kentucky women's golf team kicks off its 2011 fall season at the Texas A&M "Mo"Morial on Sept. 11-13. Coming off an NCAA Regionals appearance in the spring of 2011, the Cats are ready to begin their season with hopes of improving on their impressive postseason run last year.

Hosted by Texas A&M, the "Mo"Morial will be played in Bryan, Texas at the Traditions Golf Club. The 6,260-yard, par-72 course will be a tough challenge that senior Ashlee Rose says the Cats are looking forward to face.

 "NCAA Nationals was held at Texas A&M last year so it will be interesting to see how we can perform keeping that in mind," said Rose, the lone senior.

The 54-hole, stroke-play tournament will kick off with the first round Sunday, Sept. 11, at 8 a.m. The second round will begin Monday at 8 a.m. followed by the third and final shotgun round Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. All times are Eastern.

The tournament features tough competition including: Auburn, Coastal Carolina, Florida State, Michigan State, North Texas, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, Tulane, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

"We are excited to kick off our fall season at Texas A&M this weekend," said head coach Golda Johansson Borst, "The girls have worked hard over the summer and are eager to get going with the season."
