ATHENS, Ga. --- The Georgia women's golf team will open the 2014 portion of its schedule on Saturday by hosting the Lady Bulldog Individual Championship at the University of Georgia Golf Course. Fifty-four golfers from 12 schools will compete in the one-day, 36-hole event.

Golfers will tee off with an 8:45 a.m. shotgun start and play two rounds with the same pairings. No admission will be charged.

"It's going to be fun to finally compete again," head coach Josh Brewer said. "October was the last time we competed. It's exciting to have a scorecard in your hand and the flag up and have some nerves. That's the main reason we created this tournament, to play in a tournament atmosphere before we go to Puerto Rico. I'm excited to see how our players react and how they handle tournament conditions."

In addition to Georgia, golfers from Alabama, Auburn, Chattanooga, Georgia Regents University Augusta, Kennesaw State, Louisville, Mercer, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Samford and Tennessee round out the field.

All nine members of the Bulldogs' roster will compete in the tournament, which will also serve as qualifying rounds to determine Georgia's lineup for the first two events of the spring - the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Feb. 16-18 and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate on Feb. 23-25.

"If anyone wins the tournament, they're automatically exempt and in the lineup for both Puerto Rico and New Orleans," Brewer said. "Let's face it, if they win the tournament, they should already be in really good shape as far as qualifying for both of those events."

The Bulldogs and three additional schools - Chattanooga, Samford and Tennessee - will compete in a "mini tournament" within the tournament. The other eight schools have less than five golfers entered in the field. Brewer will designate five golfers who will comprise Georgia's team. The remaining Bulldogs will compete as individuals.
