Erynne Lee Reaches Round of 16 at U.S. Women’s Amateur

August 6th, 2009 by cstark

Silverdale’s Erynne Lee defeated Natalie Sheary of West Hartford, Conn., 3 and 2, in the second round of match play at the U.S. Women’s Amateur at the Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis.

The sophomore-to-be at Central Kitsap, who reached the semifinals in this prestigious tournament a year ago, looked like she was pretty steady with two bogeys and two birdies, including one on No. 16 to close out the match.

That moves Lee into the round of 16, where she will play No. 2 seed Jessica Korda of Bradenton, Fla. That match starts at 11:40 a.m. (Pacific time). Here’s the bracket and link to the tournament’s Web site. This link will take you to the matches currently going on.

Central Kitsap grad Troy Kelly is 1-under through nine holes in the first round of the PGA Tour’s Legends Reno-Tahoe Open at the Montreaux Golf and Country Club. You can follow Kelly here. With most of the tour’s big guns playing in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, this week, it’s a good time for a breakthrough performance for the tour rookie who turned 31 on Sunday.
