It’ll be a family affair next summer at Southern Hills. There will also be plenty of good-natured ribbing going on.

Rachel Kuehn, one of the top women’s college golfers and a member of the defending NCAA champions Wake Forest, is set to tee it up with her mom Brenda Corrie Kuehn in the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It’ll mark just the second time the prestigious U.S. Golf Association event will feature a mother-daughter combo. In 1962 Jean Trainor and her daughter Anne Trainor made the field, and the two actually squared off in match play, with mom winning 4 and 3 in the second round at the Country Club of Rochester in New York.

In 2024, Rachel will be coming off her fifth and final season at Wake Forest. She plans to keep her amateur status through the Women’s Am. Brenda, meanwhile, qualified for next year’s Am after reaching the final of the 2023 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur, which was contested Thursday at Troon Country Club.

“I wish more than anything that I could have been there for her this week. But I got to refresh from afar and be some moral support from a distance,” said Rachel, who joked there’s a worn part of her phone screen from constantly refreshing the leaderboard.

As she looked ahead to the Women’s Am next summer, Brenda knows it’ll be a challenge keeping up with the youngsters.

“That’s a whole other league,” Brenda said after falling short in the final against Sarah Gallagher, who won the Senior Am title 1 up.
