The USGA had to get a whole lot of extra medals made for the Flower Mound, TX qualifier after seven players shot 69 to share medalist honors. Amazingly, since seven qualifying spots were available, no playoff was needed. Among those advancing were current Eastern Amateur champion Elizabeth Bose (Norfolk, VA), current Southern Amateur champion Lindsey McCurdy (Liberty Hill, TX), and last year's Dixie Amateur champion Yujeong Son (Norman, OK).

2016 U.S. Women's Open qualifier Rinko Mitsunaga (Roswell, GA) was the co-medalist at the Roswell, GA qualifier shooting 69. 2017 U.S. Women's Open qualifier Natalie Srinivasan (Spartanburg, SC) advanced from the qualifier, as did 2013 Dixie Women's Amateur champion Shannon Aubert (France) after winning a playoff for the final qualifying spot.
