STARKVILLE, Miss. – After two rounds of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, Mississippi State’s Ally McDonald has achieved her first goal, which was to advance to the match-play rounds.

The senior-to-be from Fulton, Miss., fired a two-day total of 74-71—145 in stroke play at Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N.Y., to finish tied for 33rd. The Top 64 advance to match play, which begins Wednesday and consists of six rounds. McDonald will be paired with LSU's Carly Ray Goldstein beginning at 12:40 p.m. CT.

Tuesday, McDonald carded a 37 on the front nine before recording a 34 on the back nine en route to collecting four birdies, including three on the final seven holes.

“Today I played pretty well, although I didn’t putt that well,” McDonald said. “Despite four three putts, I managed to shoot 71. Monday was a little rough, but I gave myself a lot more opportunities for birdies today after having none on Monday. My main goal was to make match play, and I’m really looking forward to that.”

Bethany Wu of Diamond Bar, Calif., enters match play after posting the lowest score of 69-68—137 in stroke play.
