Browner's Run Comes To An End At U.S. Women's Golf Amateur Championship
July 31, 2001
Washington State University golfer Tasha Browner fell short of her bid to advance to the match play portion of the 101st United States Women's Golf Amateur Championship, Tuesday.
The Tarzana, Calif., native posted an 81 in Tuesday's second and final round of stroke play competition at the Flint Hills National Golf Club. Combined with her 81 in Monday's opening round, Browner posted a two-day total of 162 (+20), finishing in a tie for 103rd position.
Battling hot and windy conditions, nobody in the 144-player field managed to break par upon the conclusion of stroke play. First round leader Celeste Troche of Paraguay and Meredith Duncan of Shreveport, La., led the field with one over par totals of 143.
The top 64 players at the conclusion of stroke play advanced to match play competition, which begins Wednesday. The 36-hole match play final will take place Saturday, Aug. 4.
