U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifying Results
from Monroe Country Club in Monroe, NC

MONROE, N.C. (July 7, 2018) -- Final results from U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifying at Monroe Country Club in Monroe, N.C. on July 6, 2018 (6333 yards, par 36-36--72, Course/Slope rating: 76.7/138).

Gina Kim of Chapel Hill, N.C. fired a 4-under-par 68 to bring home medalist honors at the U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifier at Monroe Country Club. Kim was in the morning wave of starting times at the qualifier and avoided the two-hour lightning delay that the players in the afternoon had to overcome. Kim finished with five birdies and one bogey, one stroke ahead of the nearest competitors. All of the nine qualifiers finished under par. Madison Caldwell of Milton, G.A. and Ya Chun Chang of Chinese Taipei each finished with a three-under-par 69; Abigail Schimpf of Daniel Island, S.C., Maria Balcazar of Mexico and Kynadie Adams of Nashville, T.N. finished at 2-under-par 70; and Abbey Hartsell of Hickory, N.C., Ivy Shepherd of Peachtree City, G.A. and Amanda Doherty of Brookhaven, G.A. finished at 1-under-par 71 to claim the final qualifying spots.

Eight players returned to the course Saturday morning for a playoff for first and second alternates. On the first hole, Grace St. Germain of Canada made a birdie and claimed the first alternate position. Katharine Patrick of West University Place, T.X. claimed the second alternate position after a par on the fourth playoff hole.

Nine qualifying spots and two alternate positions were available at this qualifying site.

Sectional qualifying is conducted over 18 holes at 23 locations in the United States and Canada. The championship proper will be held at The Golf Club of Tennessee in Kingston Springs, T.N. on August 6-12, 2018.

This qualifier was conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association on behalf of the United States Golf Association.
