Son reaches match play in U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship

PARAMUS, N.J. –  Hye-Jin Choi, of the Republic of Korea, and Sadie Englemann, of Austin, Texas, shared medalist honors on Tuesday with 36-hole scores of 5-under-par 141 after two rounds of stroke play at the 68th U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship on The Ridgewood Country Club’s 6,406-yard, par-73 composite course.



Both players pushed past defending champion Eun Jeong Seong, 16, of the Republic of Korea, who held the first-day lead with a 6-under 67, but posted a 3-over 76 Tuesday to trail the medalists by two strokes. Jayna Choi, 15, of Collierville, Tenn., who was a semifinalist in the 2015 championship, joined Seong at 3-under 143.



Two-time Oklahoma women’s amateur champion and Class 6A high school champ Yujeong Son of Norman advanced to match play with scores of 76-78 for a 154 total. She will be paired with Mike Liu of Beverly Hills, Calif., who shot seven shots better at 147.



Kaitlin Milligan of Norman struggled to an 85 in the second round and did not advance to match play. 



The 16-year-old Choi, low amateur in the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open, posted a 2-under 71, and Englemann, a ninth-grader at Austin’s West Lake High School, shot a 1-under 72 to lead the stroke-play scoring. Both played in the morning wave and saw their position improve as Seong, playing in the afternoon, posted four bogeys on her inward nine.
