A perfect day for golf greeted the 70 players who teed of in the US Women's Amateur Sectional Qualifier on Thursday, July 12th.  This year it took a two over par 74, on the 6300 yard Walnut Grove Course to make the playoff for the final qualifying positions.  Our Medalist who shot a two under par 70 was Lauren Hartlage from Elizabethtown, KY, also qualifying was Mikayla Smith, Adeena Shears, Kylie Raines, and grabbing the final two qualifying positions in the five for two playoff was Kristin Engle and Kystal Hu.
