New Look, Same Aspirations For Lady Bulldogs


Sept. 26, 2001

High expectations are nothing new to the Georgia women's golf program. After all, the Lady Bulldogs have finished among the top-10 teams at the national championships 15 times since 1979. Additionally, UGA lays claim to a league-best 10 SEC Championships all-time.

But things have changed around Athens since last spring when the Lady Dogs used a dramatic fourth-round rally to win the NCAA Championships. Instantly, Georgia went from a program annually seeking its first national championship to the team used as a marker by every other team in the country.

"I'd rather be here than any other place," head coach Todd McCorkle said. "I like the position. It does brings us into the season with a target on our back, and that's really not fair because this is such a totally different team than we had last year. With the expectations comes a little bit of pressure, and obviously, we're going to be playing with two or three bodies that haven't competed in college golf before.
