Campus Insider Podcast/Stephanie Kono


After a one-week hiatus, where I was off covering the Masters for the magzine, I'm back again with another edition of the Golf World/Campus Insider Podcast. This week's guest is UCLA's Stephanie Kono, who had a pretty great few days last week. First she learned she was named to the 2010 U.S. Curtis Cup team that competes in June at Essex CC in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass. Then she proceeded to win medalist honors at the Ping ASU Invitational while also helping the Bruins take the team title with a dramatic 50-foot birdie putt on the last hole.

Kono takes time to reflect on last week's heroics, what it means to be picked for the Curtis Cup and what is in store for UCLA as the team prepares to compete against rivals Arizona State and USC at the Pac-10 Women's Championship April 19-21 at Eugene (Ore.) CC.
