Milligan, Youngblood open with 75s in U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship

SPRINGFIELD, Pa. – Mika Liu, at 5-under 66, sits alone atop the 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship leader board after Monday’s first round of stroke play at the 6,259-yard, par-71 Rolling Green Golf Club.

Liu, 17, of Beverly Hills, Calif., holds a one-stroke lead over Lucy Li, 13, of Redwood Shores, Calif., and Yuka Saso, 15, of the Philippines. Six players sit two strokes behind at 3-under 68: 2016 Olympian Tiffany Chan, 22, of Hong Kong, China; 2016 Canadian Women’s Amateur champion Hye-Jin Choi, 16, of the Republic of Korea; Annika Clark, 19, of Highlands, Texas; 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball co-champion Hailee Cooper, 16, of Montgomery, Texas; 2010 U.S. Girls’ Junior runner-up Katelyn Dambaugh, 21, of Goose Creek, S.C.; and 2016 USA Curtis Cup Team member Mariel Galdiano, 18, of Pearl City, Hawaii.

The 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, conducted by the United States Golf Association, is open to female amateur golfers with a Handicap Index® not exceeding 5.4. It consists of two 18-hole rounds of stroke play followed by six rounds of match play, with the championship scheduled to conclude with a 36-hole final on Sunday.

Oklahomans Kaitlin Milligan of Norman and Sydney Youngblood of Durant both shot 4-over 75s in the first round. Both will likely have to trim their scores by 3-4 shots Tuesday to make the 64-person field for match play which begins Wednesday.

The match-play rounds of the 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. Coverage will be from 3-6 p.m. EDT Wednesday through Friday, and from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
