Golf Channel said Wednesday that Begay will serve as an on-course reporter at the NCAA men's golf championship, with coverage starting Monday (2-5 p.m.). The tournament, which will feature Cal and Stanford, runs from Friday-May 28 at Prairie Dunes in Hutchinson, Kansas.

"So long as I've got a golf cart to get me from one point to the next, I'll be OK," Begay, 41, said.

Stanford was at 26-over 586 and in seventh place after two rounds of the NCAA women's championship, while Cal was 21st at 41-over 601. Oklahoma held a three-shot lead at 15-over 575 at Tulsa (Oklahoma) Country Club. Stanford's Lauren Kim shot a 1-over 71 and shared second at 2-under 138, three shots behind Oklahoma's Alexandra Kaui. Cal's Nicola Rössler (75) was 24th at 145.
