COLUMBUS, Ohio – Wednesday is the practice round for the NCAA Central Regional, but before the Buckeyes teed off members of the Ohio State women’s golf team previewed the tournament held this Thursday-Saturday on OSU Golf Club’s Scarlet Course. Ohio State is the eighth-seed in the 21-team field and action begins with 8 a.m. tee times each day.

Along with head coach Therese Hession, senior co-captain Gemma Webster, sophomore In Hong Lim and freshman Vicky Villanueva each recorded video interviews about making the NCAA field and hosting the event on their home course.
