In the video above, Kelly Shon, head coach Nicki Cutler, and Mary (Moan) Swanson '97, the only Ivy Leaguer prior to Shon to play in the NCAA finals, talk about the NCAA women's golf championship.

Prior to this month, the only Ivy Leaguer to play in the NCAA women's golf championship was a Princetonian, Mary Moan '97. That won't change this year, but the Tigers will have a second such player once Kelly Shon tees it up Tuesday.

Shon will play four rounds Tuesday through Friday at the University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga. after earning one of six individual bids spread across the three NCAA Regionals two weekends ago. Of the 378 players in the NCAA Regionals, 120 advanced with their teams and six, including Shon, will play as individuals this week on the par-72, 6,372-yard course.

Tuesday's first round will start at 8:28 a.m. for Shon, and Wednesday's second round will start at 12:45 p.m. She'll begin play at either 8:25 or 8:28 a.m. Thursday and either 12:45 or 12:48 p.m. Friday.

With still a year to go in her Princeton career, Shon is one of only three players in program history to appear in three NCAA Regionals, and one of two, along with Moan, to appear in an NCAA Championship. Shon has won three All-Ivy League honors, including the 2013 Ivy League Player of the Year, and has won four tournament titles, including the 2013 Ivy League Championship.

NCAA.com will webcast the final two rounds beginning at noon ET each day. Live scoring will be available via Golfstat here.
