Marin, Cho, Lucidi Advance In U.S. Open Qualifying
May 24, 2006
Three Trojans, including current players Irene Cho and Catalina Marin, made it through the local Women's U.S. Open Qualifying at Yorba Linda C.C. to earn spots in the 36-hole sectional qualifying tournament held June 12 or 13 (depending on the site).
Marin and Cho advanced with a 73 and 75, respectively, while former Trojan Becky Lucidi also moved on with a 76. Lucidi was part of the 2003 Women of Troy national championship team (as was Cho).
Three other former Women of Troy players are already exempt for the 2006 U.S. Open based on their performances on the LPGA Tour in 2005. Candie Kung, Jill McGill and Jennifer Rosales will all be in the championship field at Newport Country Club (June 29-July 2 in Newport, R.I).
