WOODBURY, Minn. – Two Tarleton golfers, Carla Cooper and Shraddhanjali Singh, have been invited to play in the Best Buy Charity Pro-Am Classic on June 27-28 at the Prestwick Golf Club in Woodbury, Minn. as a part of the Ladies Professional Golf Association U.S. Open Weekend.
Cooper and Singh will join other NCAA All-Americans in a shotgun scramble at 8:30 a.m. on Friday before the TexAnn duo will join the other golfers at Interlachen Country Club to watch Saturday’s LPGA U.S. Open competition.
“This is an honor for our student-athletes,” said Tarleton head coach Jerry Doyle. “This is also a great recognition for our program because two TexAnns will be interacting with some of the best golfers in the nation on Friday before watching the best golfers in the world on Saturday. I am really proud of these two ladies for representing Tarleton and the TexAnn golf program.
”Cooper, a freshman from Arlington, and Singh, a sophomore from India, were each named National Golf Coaches Association All-Americans in May.
Over the past decade, this event, supporting the Best Buy Children’s Foundation, has encompassed a celebration of women’s professional golf which has proven to be mutually beneficial for both Best Buy and the LPGA professionals alike. In recognition of the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open to be held at Interlachen Country Club in Minneapolis, M.N. June 26-28, Best Buy has elected to alter the traditional format to honor the All-American selections of women’s collegiate golf. Invitations to the event were extended to Duramed FUTURES Tour NGCA All-Americans honorees of NCAA Division I, II and III women’s collegiate golf.
