No. 26 Golf Opens Postseason in Greensboro
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The 26th-ranked Miami Hurricanes women’s golf team will makes its 10th ACC Championship appearance this weekend. The 2014 ACC Women’s Golf Championship will be held April 17-19 at the par-71, 6,107-yard course at Sedgefield Country Club.
Each day will consist of 18 holes. Miami, who enters the ACC Championship as the No. 7 seed, is paired with NC State and Notre Dame for Thursday’s opening round, with action beginning at 8 a.m. ET. Two-time defending ACC champion Duke enters the tournament as the top seed and No. 3 nationally.
The tournament is making its sixth-straight appearance at Sedgefield, which also hosts Greensboro’s PGA Tournament’s Wyndham Championship, and was the actual site of the formation of the ACC in 1953.
A year ago, the Hurricanes tied for fifth at the ACC Championship behind top-10 individual finishes by Rika Park and All-ACC performer Leticia Ras-Anderica. Eight of the top 11 finishes from last year’s ACC Championship return.
For the ninth time this season, head coach Patti Rizzo’s lineup will include Ras-Anderica, Park, sophomore Kailey Walsh, and freshmen Delfina Acosta and Daniela Darquea. Miami’s five golfers have combined for all eight top-10, 12 top-15 and 20 top-25 finishes this season. Darquea leads the Hurricanes with a 72.87 scoring average, including two tournament titles.
Miami has finished either second, third or fourth in six of its eight tournaments this season. As a team, the Hurricanes are averaging 294.09 per round.
Live scoring will be available throughout the event at www.golfstatresults.com. Live streaming during Friday’s second round (2-4 p.m.) and Saturday’s final round (12:30-3 p.m.) will be available on the ACC Digital Network and theACC.com.
