The tournament was held at The Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles and was hosted by Southern California.
I was worried that the showing at the Pac-12 Championships would keep us out.
We'll be able to follow the tourney at Golfstat.
Yeah me too. I'll do a better preview later as it gets closer to the 16th. The women didn't qualify though, but it looks like Jenny Coleman qualified as an individual with a chance to compete for a national championship.
Here's a little more info on the regionals
