Pursell sponsors golf invitationalOn November 9-11th, the Auburn women 's golf team hosted the top 12 NCAA women 's golf teams from the previous year in Auburn, AL, thanks to Pursell Technologies, Inc. (PTI), Sylacauga, AL.
The Auburn Tiger-Derby Invitational presented by PTI was held in lieu of the annual tournament hosted by GolfWorld Magazine in Hilton Head, SC. This year the tournament was cancelled due to the tragic events of September 11th and GolfWorld 's ties to New York City.
When one of the country 's most prestigious tournaments was in jeopardy of cancellation, Auburn women 's golf coach, Kim Evans, sought out PTI to sponsor the event at Auburn. The 12 teams attending the Invitational at the Auburn University Club were: Auburn, Duke, University of Georgia, Oklahoma State, Pepperdine, Stanford, Tulsa, University of Arizona, USC, UCLA, University of Tennessee and University of Texas.
