ELGIN, S.C. (July 31, 2014) — August Kim, who just finished her freshman season at Purdue University, will take a two stroke lead into tomorrow's final round at the Women's Trans National Amateur.

Playing The Members Club at Woodcreek, a Tom Fazio design, Kim has managed to hold the lead after every round up until this point thanks to her first-round 69. The Florida native has fired rounds of 73 and 70 since.

Caroline Inglis, a junior at the University of Oregon, tied the low round of the tournament with a 69 on Thursday to pull within two shots of Kim.

The only other player under par in South Carolina is UC Davis junior Andrea Wong, who shot her lowest round of the event in round three — a one-under par 70. She sits three strokes behind Kim.

ABOUT THE Women's Trans National

The inaugural event, held in 1927 at Blue Hills Country Club in Kansas City, Mo. set off decades of successful tournament across the United States, conducted by an organization then named the Missouri Valley Women's Golf Association. A year later, the name became the Women's Trans-Mississippi Golf Association, evolving into the Women's Trans National Golf Association by 1953 to include all states. This 72-hole stroke play event spans the nation and has been hosted at some of the country finest courses, including Persimmon Ridge in Kentucky, Stonewall Links in Pennsylvania, and Eugene Country Club in Oregon.
