Three Duck Women Advance in U.S. Open Qualifying

May 14, 2003

PORTLAND, Ore. - Oregon senior Annie Davis and freshmen Erin Andrews and Therese Wenslow have earned spots in next month's sectional qualifying round of the U.S. Women's Open. The three Ducks advanced to the sectionals by finishing among the top 14 during Tuesday's U.S. Women's Open local qualifying round at Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland, Ore.

Andrews, from Las Vegas, Nev., tied for second at 2-over 74, one shot behind Anna Temple, a junior at California, who finished first with a 73.

Wenslow, from Bunkeflostrand, Sweden, carded a 76 to tie for sixth with former Duck All-American Paula Patterson. The Vancouver, Wash., native graduated from Oregon in 1998 and earned All-America status as a junior in 1997.

Portland's Davis, who had moral support from her caddie -- her father Gaylord Davis, who was a four-year letterman for the Ducks and was the medalist at the 1968 Pac-10 Northern Division tournament -- scored a 77 to tie for eighth. Gaylord Davis is also the co-founder of the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course in Portland that will host this year's U.S. Women's Open July 3-6.

The current Ducks and Patterson will next compete in the 36-hole sectional qualifier June 9 at Lake Merced Golf Course in Daly City, Calif. Coincidentally, current Oregon head coach Shannon Rouillard qualified for the 1999 U.S. Women's Open by winning the sectional tournament at Lake Merced.
