STARKVILLE, Miss.Ally McDonald began defense of her North & South Amateur title in fine fashion, carding an opening-round 1-over-par 72 at Pinehurst No. 8.

McDonald sits in a tie for eighth place at the Pinehurst, N.C., course, but is only three shots back of leader Alison Lee who carded a 2-under-par 69.

Starting on No. 10, the Fulton, Miss., native opened her round with a birdie. After seven-straight pars, McDonald gave a stroke back with a bogey on 18.

She moved back to -1 with a birdie at the fifth, but finished the round at 1-over following bogeys on Nos. 6 and 8.

McDonald will tee off Wednesday’s second round on No. 1 at 11:36 a.m. CST.

Across the country in DuPont, Wash., teammate Ji Eun Baik put herself in contention to move to match play at the U.S. Women’s Public Links Championship.

After firing an opening-round 74 Monday on The Home Course, Baik responded Tuesday with a 72 to move into a tie for 41st.

The top 64 in the field advance to the match play portion of the event, which is in its final year.

Baik put together a stellar back nine on Tuesday, notching birdies on Nos. 10, 14 and 15.

Fellow Bulldog Blaise Carabello also improved in her second round at the U.S. Women’s Public Links, firing a 77 Tuesday after opening play with a 79.

Tuesday’s round was not completed due to early-morning fog that delayed the start of play.
