The top two seeds in the Women’s Southern Amateur Championship faced off in the final match today at Golf Club of Houston.

Grace Jin was fresh off a victory in the Texas Women's Open. She began the week right where she left off, with a blistering 8-under par 64 in the stroke play qualifying round.

Jin went toe-to-toe with the 2nd seed Emma McMyler of San Antonio, a recent Duke transfer (from Xavier University). A back-and-forth match saw McMyler make the turn 1-up, but Jin was able to tie the match on the 14th hole. McMyler regained the lead, going 1-up through 15 holes, and held that heading into the 18th hole before Jin made a clutch par to tie the match.

McMyler composed herself and made birdie on the first playoff hole to win the match at a course where she also claimed victory in the 101st Women’s Texas Amateur a mere eleven months ago.


Lucy Nunn
Lucy Nunn made history with her victory in the Mid-Amateur Championship finals as the first participant to win the Women’s Southern Amateur Championship and Mid-Amateur Championship. Nunn dominated throughout the final match against the 1st seed Dawn Woodard, making the turn 3-up through nine before winning 5 & 3. Nunn previously won the Women’s Southern Amateur Championship in 2008 at The Clubs of Kingwood Island Course. EARLIER MATCHES

In the Semifinals of the Amateur Championship, top seed Grace Jin continued her rock-solid play as she did throughout the week with a convincing 5 & 4 victory over local product and 12th seed Bella Flores. Emma McMyler was able to keep pace with Jin as she defeated two-time Women’s Southern Amateur champion Calynne Rosholt, the 3rd seed, 2 & 1.

The Mid-Amateur Championship Semifinals, another top seed, Dawn Woodard, take down the 5th seed Kelley Nittoli 3 & 2. Lucy Nunn secured her spot in the Finals after a convincing 5 & 4 victory over Meghan Moake, the 7th seed.
