February 11-14, 2023 — Over a windy and somewhat chilly three days, sixteen collegiate teams battled Palos Verdes Golf Club in the 27th Therese Hession Regional Challenge Presented by Northrop Grumman. The tournament, annually rated the best field in women’s college golf, was renamed this year to honor retired Coach Therese Hession, the tournament co-founder and women’s golf coach at The Ohio State University for 30 years.
Congratulations to 2023 individual winner, Rose Zhang of Stanford University, and to the winning team, University of Oregon. Our 28th tournament takes place February 4th-6th, 2024.
We were pleased to have Cathy (Hanlon) Marino join us for this year’s event. Cathy is a PVGC Hall of Fame member, was a two-time All-American at SMU and a ten-year LPGA touring professional before retiring in 1993. She was the head coach at SMU from 1993 to 2000 during which time she was a co-founder of our tournament. She has been the Golf Coach at Jesuit High School in Dallas since 2003 where she had a great influence on a young Jordan Spieth.
