California Women's Amateur: Andrea Wong sets new scoring record
CARMEL, Calif. (Aug. 5, 2014)- The qualifying round for the 48th annual California Women’s Amateur Championship was completed today at the Golf Club at Quail Lodge. Andrea Wong of San Francisco blistered the field with a record breaking 64, capturing medalist honors. Her round which included eight birdies and one bogey separated her from the field of 67 players by four strokes. Wong’s career lowest round started strong with birdies on the first three holes, then again at hole 7, 12, 13, 15 and 16. The U.C. Davis Aggie was pleased with her round, “I putted well and hit the driver well.” She mentioned she and her caddy were seeing the lines well and the putts were dropping.
Alone in 2nd place with a 68 was Hannah Sodersten, who plays for Fresno State. Rounding out a group of college players in red figures at 2-under-par 69 were Mariko Tumangan who plays for Stanford, Beverly Vatananugulkit who plays for UC Davis and high school junior Amanjoty Sangha of San Mateo.
The cut for the championship flight of 32 players was the lowest in the tournament history at 4-over-par 75. The rest of the field will comprise the Helen Lengfeld flight. Match play begins tomorrow with the championship flight starting at 7:30 a.m. and the Helen Lengfeld following after. The Rounds of 16 will be played in the afternoon. The public is welcome.
