Senior golfer Audrey Orem has appeared in 33 tournaments with the Vikings during her career and is a three-time All-GNAC selection.
The Bellingham native is the first to be profiled in a new feature on WWUVikings.com where she shares "What's in Her Bag".
Throughout the spring golf season, WWU's men's and women's golfers will have the chance to talk about their favorite clubs, what driver they use, what that head cover signifies and if they have any good luck charms in their golf bag.
The WWU women's team opens the spring season Monday and Tuesday with the Point Loma Reach 2017 at Riverwalk Golf Club in San Diego.
