U.S. Women’s Amateur quarterfinals set as three Californians remain

GLEN COVE, N.Y. (August 7, 2014) — The best women’s amateur golfers grinded through, for some, more than 36 holes on Thursday during the round-of-32 and round-of-16 matchups. Now just eight players remain, including three of the tournament’s top-five seeds.

Two-seeded Su-Hyun Oh of Australia won her first match 4-and-3 before handing an absolute beating to reigning championship Emma Talley, winning 9-and-8. Oh rattled off four birdies in on the front nine as she won nine consecutive holes after pushing the first hole with Talley.

Oh will face recent Junior Girls PGA champion Kristen Gillman, who needed 20 holes in her first match of the day to defeat Celine Boutier of France. The 16-year-old from Austin, Tex. then knocked off Wisconsin native Casey Danielson to advance into the quarterfinals.
