SAN DIEGO - San Diego State women's golf senior Christine Wong has been tabbed as one of Golf Digest's Top 50 Female Players to Watch in 2012-13. Wong is the only player on the list from a current Mountain West institution.
A native of Richmond, B.C., Canada, Wong played in all 11 events a season ago and led the Aztecs with a 73.94 stroke average. The senior won the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate last October and captured the hardware at the Bruin Wave Invitational back in March. In addition to her two individual championships, Wong posted four top-10 finishes and seven top-20 performances.
The 2012 Mountain West Golfer of the Year also led SDSU to its third straight NCAA Regional berth. At the East Regional, Wong carded the team's low round of the tournament (second-round 71) before finishing with San Diego State's second-best overall score.
Wong and her Aztec teammates open the 2012-13 campaign on Sept. 17, when they travel to Albuquerque, N.M., for the two-day Dick McGuire Invitational.
