    The women won the Eastlake Cup by defeating Stanford 3-2. USC currently has five golfers on the team, the minimum needed to realistically compete in college tournaments. That's precarious enough, but when you consider that the Trojans' top two players have qualified for the final stage of LPGA tour school and could earn their tour cards in December and leave school before the Spring semester when the college championship season begins, as Karen Chung did last year, I wonder what the plan is. It would be beyond embarrassing if USC was unable to field a team in a sport in which it has been one of the pre-eminent programs in the country for the last 10-15 years. Are reinforcements coming in the Spring semester, either transfers or high schoolers who graduate early and enroll in January, have the two golfers who could get their LPGA cards, Robyn Ree and Muni He, said they will stay through the spring season even if they do qualify for the tour? The NCAA allows 8 full scholarships for women's golf, USC is currently using only four of those, with one of the current members, Divya Manthena, a walk-on. Anyone have any insight?
