Women's Golf Travels to Hilton Head For Darius Rucker
Communications Student Assistant
BATON ROUGE – The LSU women’s golf team is set to tee it up in Hilton Head, South Carolina this week at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate against a stacked field. The seventh annual Darius Rucker will take place at the Long Cove Club, a Pete Dye Course and will play 6,160 yards.
The par-71 tournament, hosted by South Carolina, will play host to 18 teams as part of a three-day tournament that will run through Sunday. Ten teams in the field are currently ranked in the top-25, while six of the programs have won an event this year.
The Lady Tigers look to have a strong week after coming off of a sixth-place finish at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate. Senior Sydney Cavin and junior Kathleen Gallagher look to build momentum after the two led LSU in scoring last week, each finishing tied for 22nd. Fellow senior Claudia De Antonio also had a nice week finishing in 28th.
