Head Coach Sofie Aagaard on The Show

“We are back on the road after just a couple of days at home after the tournament in San Diego. We’ve had one team practice session where we tidied up a couple of things. We will have a training day in Las Vegas this Saturday, playing a short course with a continued focus on increasing our stats for successful greens in regulation through better iron play. Spanish Trail Golf Course is a great facility that is used to hosting events. We will be using golf carts for this tournament, which is unusual for us as we walk when competing, but the course is so spread out that we need transportation in between holes. We are mentally prepared for winds and potential changes in wind direction through the rounds as well as fast and undulating greens with Bermuda grass or alike.”

The Field

15 teams will be participating in The Show. Along with host UNLV, Washington State will take on Charlotte, Denver, Furman, Kent State, Mississippi State, Nevada, New Mexico, North Florida, Old Dominion, Pepperdine, Purdue, South Florida, and Texas State.
