PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. --- The Tennessee State women's golf team will compete for the first time as a team unit in the National Minority Golf Tournament that is set to begin Friday (May 6). The Lady Tiger program, in its third spring of competition, has had players compete in the individual portion in the past, but this is a step forward for the program in its continued growth. The TSU lineup will include Mary Brigance, LaToya Moppins, Jessica Nemnich, Leslie Scarborough, and Morgan Brown. The Lady Tigers are just one of three Division I teams in its pool. Bethune-Cookman and Texas-Pan American are also represented. The three-round tournament begins Friday (May 6) and will continue with the final round set for Sunday (May 8). A total of 96 student-athletes representing 21 colleges and universities will comprise the field. The PGA Golf Club is The PGA of America's first owned and operated, state-of-the-art public golf facility. It marks the eighth consecutive year that PGA Golf Club has hosted the national Championship, which is co-sponsored by The PGA of America and the National Minority College Golf Scholarship Fund of Cleveland.
