Husky Golfers Fail to Qualify for U.S. Amateur
July 8, 2004
Seattle - Five members of the Washington women's golf team failed to qualify in U.S. Amateur Championship events this week and advance to the championship. Husky freshmen Amy Wang and Amber Prange came the closest. Both players advanced to a playoff but failed to earn one of the spots for this year's event that will be held at The Kahkwa Club in Erie, Pa., Aug. 9-14.
Wang shot 74 at the Amateur qualifying tournament held at Pumpkin Ridge in North Plains, Ore. on Wednesday. She shot 74 to finish in a four-way tie for fifth, three strokes behind the medalist. Only seven players advanced from the site to the championship. Also competing at that site were Paige Mackenzie, Sung Ea Lee and Courtney McCracken.
Prange lost in a three-way playoff for the final qualifying spot from her tournament.
