Anna Redding of Concord, N.C. made a bold statement in the morning stroke play qualifying round at the 21st Carolinas Women's Match Play hosted by North Ridge Country Club. She carded a six-under-par 66 to earn medalist honors and the No. 1 seed for match play.

The rising junior at Virginia captured her first CGA title earlier this summer at the 92nd Carolinas Women's Amateur and showed a similar performance in today's qualifying round. She found her rhythm early on the front nine and birdied three of her first five holes. Carrying her momentum to the back nine, she carded two birdies and an eagle.

"Everything was working," Redding said. "I felt really confident, and I had a very open and clear mind this morning. I was just hitting golf shots and everything was working, so it was awesome."

Courtney McKim of Raleigh, N.C. carded a five-under-par 67 with three birdies and an eagle to earn the No. 2 seed. Jessica Spicer of Bahama, N.C. carded a four-under-par 68 in the qualifying round to earn the No. 3 seed for match play.

Three of the top four seeds advanced to tomorrow's Round of 16 matches. No. 29 seed Kate Harper of Isle of Palms, S.C. upset No. 4 seed Victoria Huskey of Greenville, S.C. and won 1-up. Spicer cruised to the Round of 16 after defeating Brooke Hutto of Aiken, S.C., 3 and 2.

Redding also stamped her ticket to tomorrow's matches with a 3 and 2 win over No. 32 seed Gracyn Burgess of Lexington, S.C., who earned a spot in the Round of 32 in a sudden death playoff. Though she had consecutive impressive rounds, Redding is not losing focus on the upcoming competition.

"It doesn't really matter what seed you are," Redding said. "Anything can happen in match play, so I'm just trying to stick to my game plan and hitting and executing my shots."

Julie Shore of Raleigh, N.C. leads the Carolinas division after carding an eight-over-par 80 in the qualifying round. She birdied three holes to take a four stroke lead over the rest of the field.

The Round of 16 matches will be held Wednesday morning and play will continue Wednesday afternoon with quarterfinal matches. The semifinal and championship matches will be held on Thursday, July 26.

 

The championship format is 18 holes of stroke play qualifying to determine seeding and flights for match play in the Championship Division and seeding for match play in the Carolinas Division.
