SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (July 7, 2021) -- Final results from 2021 U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifying at Carolina Trace Country Club (Lake) in Sanford, N.C. on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 (6,283 yards, par 36-36--72, Course/Slope rating: 78.3/150).

Caroline Craig of Sautee Nacoochee, G.A. earned Medalist honors at the U.S. Women's Amateur Qualifier hosted by Carolina Trace Country Club after firing a 3-under-par 69.

After a two-hole playoff, Ryan Flynn of Truckee, C.A. claimed the first alternate position and Pin-Wen Lu of Taipei claimed the second alternate position. Both players recorded a 1-over-par 73.

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