University of Arizona womenˇ?s golfer Alison Walshe will easily advance to the match play portion of the 2007 U.S. Amateur Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Ind.
Walshe, a senior-to-be from Westford, Mass., carded identical one-under 71s in the two rounds of stroke play. Her two-under 142 tally means that she will easily make the 64-woman cut for match play. As of 4:20 p.m. PDT, she was in a tie for ninth place with roughly one-third of the field still on the course.
The first round of match play begins tomorrow. Pairings and tee times are to be determined.
