SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara women's golf heads to southern Utah to compete in the 14-team BYU at Entrada Classic with a field that is likely the strongest the Broncos have been a part of all season. The two-day event begins Monday morning and will span 54 holes with over half the field ranked in the top-100.
The Broncos enter the event ranked No. 97 in the recent Golfstat.com poll and will square off with four teams ranked in the top-50. No. 18 Kent State headlines the field along with North Carolina (26), BYU (48) and SMU (49). Texas Tech (51), Oregon State (57) and UT-San Antonio (68) are also top-ranked clubs.
"It's a great field so we're excited to be here and compete with the best," head coach Krystal Kelly said.
Oral Roberts, Utah Valley, Tulsa, Wyoming, Boise State and Southern Utah complete the field that will navigate the Johnny Miller signature designed 6,089-yard, par-72 Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club course.
"The course is tricky," noted Kelly. "It's very shot specific."
The Broncos are coming off a third-place finish last week at the Fresno State Classic when three players finished among the top-20.
"The field in this event is probably the strongest we've seen this year," Kelly noted about the challenge facing her squad.
Teams and individuals will play 36 holes on Monday with the first-round teeing off at 7:30 a.m. PT with a shotgun start format. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
