The Scoop
• Three weeks removed from its last outing, No. 10 Stanford heads to Oregon for the 2014 edition of the Pac-12 Conference Championships. Coming off a seventh-place finish at the PING/Arizona State Invitational to open the month, the Cardinal looks to revert to its early spring form which included back-to-back team wins at the Peg Bernard Invitational and UC Irvine Invitational.

• What is certain to be one of the best conference tournaments in collegiate golf, the Pac-12 Championships will feature some of the best women’s teams and individuals in the country. Six Pac-12 teams are ranked in the top-11 in the nation, including defending NCAA champion and top-ranked USC.

• Twelve league players are currently ranked among the country’s top 25 individuals, including Mariah Stackhouse (9th) and Lauren Kim (20th).

• Stackhouse has notched two wins and eight top-10 finishes this season. Both Stackhouse (t-3rd) and Mariko Tumangan (t-14th) finished in the top-20 of last season’s Pac-12 Championships, in which the Cardinal tied for fourth with Arizona.

• Casey Danielson has five top-15 finishes this spring, with Lauren Kim adding four top-20 showings.

• The Cardinal has 10 top-10 finishes in as many events this season.

• Stanford’s lone Pac-12 title came in 1999. Two seasons prior, Mhairi McKay claimed the only individual title by a Cardinal player after carding a 207, the lowest 54-hole total in conference history.

The Tournament
• Oregon State will serve as the host for the 54-hole event at the par-72, 6,256-yard Trysting Tree Golf Club.

• The four individuals from each team with the lowest scores for any 18-hole round constitute the scoring members of the team for that round. The team championship will be awarded to the squad with the lowest total combined score for all rounds.

The Statement
• Margot and Mitch Milias Director of Women’s Golf Anne Walker previews the event …
“Going into this weekend will be like going into the national championship. We’re going to face some of the nation’s best teams and are looking forward to the battle. We can play great in the tournament and win it, while we can play great and finish sixth.

“What we’ve deduced as a team is that when we play really well, we score well on the par-5’s and have good up-and-downs. We’re going to focus on both of those facets of the game to give ourselves the best chance to win.”

The Last Time Out
• Stanford put the finishing touches on its regular season with a seventh-place finish at the PING/Arizona State Invitational (April 4-6), swinging alongside seven of the country’s top-10 programs among the 15-team field.

• Four Cardinal finished in the top-50, led by 12th-place Casey Danielson (71-71-74). Lauren Kim (71-71-75) was one stroke behind Danielson to finish tied for 17th.

• Tied for 27th was Mariah Stackhouse, who went 77-70-72 for 3-over. Mariko Tumangan (76-73-75) tied for 47th.

The Next Time Out
• The NCAA Regionals will be held May 8-10 with SouthWood Golf Club (Tallahassee, Fla.), Karsten Creek Golf Club (Stillwater, Okla.) and Tumble Creek at Suncadia Resort (Seattle, Wash.) serving as the host sites.
