Georgia Golfers Travel To Hilton Head



Launch GTV All Access

March 7, 2013

ATHENS, Ga. --- The No. 14-ranked Georgia women's golf team will look to continue the momentum from its first victory of the season two weeks ago when the Bulldogs return to action in this weekend's Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

Georgia's lineup will feature senior Emilie Burger, sophomores Collins Bradshaw and Rocio Sanchez Lobato and freshmen Manuela Carbajo Ré and Kailey Walsh.

Sanchez Lobato led wire-to-wire to capture individual medalist honors at the FSU Match-Up Tournament while also lead the Bulldogs to their first team title of 2012-13. Perhaps more impressive was the fact that four Georgia golfers finished among the top 20 individuals.

"It's important to have all five players play well every day and even have their 'bad' days be in contention and help the team," head coach Josh Brewer said. "We're starting to find that, and hopefully it will continue to grow this week.

"You try to use the win as a springboard into this event but keep your expectations at as even-keeled a level as you can," Brewer continued. "It's a new experience for all of us because its been a while since we've won. You try to keep them level headed and not let them get too excited at the start."

Georgia is one of seven top-20 teams competing at the Long Cove Club. No. 3 North Carolina headlines the list of participants, which also includes No. 4 Alabama, No. 8 Arkansas, No. 11 Vanderbilt, the No. 14 Bulldogs, No. 17 Arizona State, No. 19 Virginia, Auburn, Furman, LSU, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, UCF and Wake Forest.

Georgia faced the nation's most difficult schedule during the fall, a fact that Brewer believes helped his team in Tallahassee.

"Not only did we play the toughest schedule, we had the fifth-best stroke average in the final round in the country," Brewer said. "I think playing against tough competition, we've had to play great every day. We know that one round can make a huge difference. This is another great field...better than at Florida State. It also gives us a chance to see where we stack up in the conference."

Georgia will be paired with LSU and Vanderbilt for Friday's opening round. The Bulldogs, Tigers ad Commodores will tee off in waves from 10-10:36 a.m. Live scoring throughout the weekend will be available at www.golfstat.com.
