Danielle Kang will add some much-needed depth to the Pepperdine women’s golf team next semester. The California senior plans to graduate from high school a semester early so that she can join the Waves in January.
Pepperdine’s five-player roster was hit hard by the Swine Flu last month when both a player and a coach fell ill. The Waves won their first two events of the season before struggling to 17th at the NCAA Preview.
Kang, medalist at the 2009 U.S. Women’s Amateur, recently wrapped up an impressive high school campaign. She won the Mormonte League by 20 shots with a 15-under total after rounds of 10-under 57 and 5-under 67.
Pepperdine is ranked No. 13 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
