Macy Pate is looking to complete the stroke-play medalist and match-play champion double feat at the North & South Women's Amateur Championship at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, N.C.

Pate shot two rounds of 70 courses No. 2 and No. 8 to shoot 4-under and earn medalist honors in the stroke play portion of the North & South Women's Amateur at Pinehurst Resort.

Pate, a rising sophomore at Wake Forest, knows the feeling of success at Pinehurst, having won the North & South Junior in 2023.

Pate is currently ranked No. 179 in the Golfweek/AmateurGolf.com Women's Rankings. She recorded four birdies and two bogeys in the second round on No. 8, including birdies on holes No. 15, 17, and 18, to win medalist honors on the final hole.

She defeated Lauren Gomez in 19 holes in the round of 32, defeated Avery Weed in the round of 16, and Mackenzie Lee in the quarterfinals to get to the semifinals.

Pate will take on Kylee Choi, while Lynn Lim will take on Catie Craig in the two semifinal matches.

The North & South Women's Amateur is the third event in the inaugural Elite Women's Amateur Golf Series. 

“Since day one, our goal has been to align the top competitive amateur events in the United States, not only for the men’s game but for the women’s game as well,” Andy Priest said when the series was announced. "We are excited to play a leading role in elevating elite women’s golf by providing these athletes with an aligned summer schedule of competition at some of the most renowned venues in the country conducted by historic organizations and world-class resorts.”

Currently, Kendall Turner leads the Women's Elite Amateur Golf Series through two events, finishing T13 at the Sea Island Women's Amateur and T2 at the Southwestern Amateur. Annabelle Pancake and Leigh Chien are tied for second place.

Turner, Chien, and Pancake are not in the field this week.

Nine of the last 12 North & South Women’s Amateur champions have drawn paychecks as members of the LPGA Tour. The equation is near perfect. Win the North & South Am, and go on to professional success at the highest level.

The North & South women's champions are among the game's legends: Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs, Peggy Kirk Bell, Hollis Stacey, Brandie Burton, Brittany Lang, Morgan Pressel, and Yani Tseng.
