to our five qualifiers who have secured their places in the 123rd US Women’s Amateur Championship at
Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles, August 7-13. Bel-Air will be the second
George Thomas designed course to host a USGA Championship and the second time a
USGA National Championship will be played in LA this year.
It seems to be
an annual tradition that a playoff decides the final position(s) in our
qualifier. This year was no different,
as there were four players tied at 73 for the final qualifying position at
Walnut Grove Country Club.
It took four
playoff holes, but thanks to her second birdie, of the sudden death playoff, on
Hole #18, Madison Dabagia the Indiana resident and current sophomore at Iowa
grabbed the last position by making a 20-foot birdie putt.
medalists were Reagan Ramage and Gabby Woods who both finished with a score of
70, two under par. Gabby, an Ohio native is going into her final year at
Findlay University and helped her team win the National NCAA, D2, Team title in
2022. Reagan is a rising junior at
Randall K. Cooper High School in Union, Kentucky.
third and fourth qualifying positions were Isabella Wiley and Sarah Willis who
both finished with a score of 72, even par. Sarah is a recent graduate from
Penn State and has just completed her final year of eligibility in collegiate
golf. This was her sixth attempt to qualify at Walnut Grove having been close
to qualifying several times dating back to 2015. Isabella will begin her collegiate career
this fall at Morehead State University after a successful high school career.
Thanks to the
hard-working turf staff at Walnut Grove Country Club, led by Superintendent
Randy Boudinot for continuously preparing and maintaining a great conditioned
course for the qualifier.
to all the Volunteers and Walnut Grove Members and Staff for making this
qualifier such a great event and hosting this National Qualifier every
year. We look forward to returning next
July 11th to continue the tradition.
