The Woodlands, TX (July 30, 2013) —The first round of State Amateur Match Play began today at The Woodlands Country Club. What began as a cool morning turned into a sweltering afternoon very quickly.

Former State Amateur Champion Mina Hardin also won her match today to advance to the Round of 16. The course remains in excellent shape with greens continuing to be very firm and fast.
