Women's golf make last prep before NCAA meet

May 17, 2009

The No. 1 Arizona State women's golf team had their final practice round before tomorrow's first day of the NCAA Championships. With the temperatures barely creeping over 60 degrees, the Sun Devils practiced nine holes during the second practice round. Click here for a gallery of today's action.

The rough is thick, the greens are fast and the course is 200 yards longer than it was at the Fall Preview which the Sun Devils won in September. Head coach Melissa Luellen likened the course to one used for the U.S. Open several times throughout the round.

"How lucky we are to play here," she said numerous times throughout the day.

A few updates:

The tee times were moved to a half hour later due to anticipated frost in the early morning. The Sun Devils will tee off at 12:30 p.m. ET now instead of noon.
