Women's Pac 10/SEC showdown takes form

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Each year there seems to always be a buzz around a new event on the college schedule - remember Golfweek’s Conference Challenge this past fall? (Oh, and by the way, dates and sites for next year’s conference challenge soon will be announced.)

But, it’s another Conference Challenge that is creating some talk - the inaugural Pac-10/SEC Challenge for the women.

There is little debate that the best two golf conferences are the Pac-10 and the SEC, and the women are hoping to bring all 22 schools together for a showdown. The 2010 event is scheduled to be played Nov. 5-7 at the Stanford Golf Course with the idea that the tournament would rotate each year between the two conferences. The event also could be played once every two years.

There also is talk of a pre-tournament event that would include former players competing in an 18-hole stroke play competition and a clinic for the Bay Area First Tee program.
