McDonald Qualifies For U.S. Women's Amateur Championship
STARKVILLE, Miss. – Ally McDonald shot a 72 in the qualifying round at Eagle's Landing in Stockbridge, Ga., to earn a spot in the 112th U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, held annually by the United States Golf Association.
The tournament, which will be played at The Country Club in Pepper Pike, Ohio, Aug. 6-12, was first held in 1895 and was one of the USGA’s first three championships.
McDonald, who participated in the NCAA West Regional this past season, was also named to the All-SEC Freshman team and grabbed the Mississippi Women’s Golf Association state championship earlier this summer.
“She’s played the best golf to this point in her life,” MSU coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. “It’s good to see her post a round that can elevate herself to US Amateur status.”
