Dores Head to The Ally

Three Day Tournament Begins Monday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt concludes fall competition at The Ally, a three-day tournament beginning Monday. The Ally at Old Waverly is a renowned course that has hosted the U.S. Women’s Open in 1999 and the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 2019.

“I am really fired up to have our two All-Americans in the lineup together for the first time this year,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said. “I think that will help our team play with a lot of confidence.”

Last season, Vandy concluded The Ally tied for ninth with Morgan Baxendale leading the way at 1-over-par and a three-day total of 217 for 16th overall.

This year’s lineup at The Ally includes Auston Kim, Celina Sattelkau, Virginie Ding, Tess Davenport and Ariel Yu. Louise Yu will be competing as an individual.

The Commodores will compete against 10 teams as well as student-athletes competing as individuals. Vanderbilt will be joined on the course by host Mississippi State, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, TCU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

“The energy level was really good today in the practice round and the girls looked solid,” Allen said. “Old Waverly is a good test from green to tee and has a lot of tradition in hosting women’s golf tournaments.”

The Ally at Old Waverly in West Point, Mississippi, is set at 6,280-yards at a par 72.

The teams are slated to play 18 holes each day beginning at 8 a.m. Monday and Tuesday then at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
