Winans, Belmear qualify for U.S. Women’s Amateur, Roller out at U.S. Junior Girls
University of Oklahoma golfer Megan Winans and Faith Belmear of Owasso and Missouri State University captured two of the spots availabile in a U.S. Women’s Amateur qualifier Tuesday in Carrolton, Texas.
Winans shot a 1-under 71 to finish tied for second behind the 2-under shot by leader Britta Synder of Ames, Iowa. Belmear, who recently won the Missouri Women’s State Amateur Championship, shot a 1-over 73 and was one of three golfers to advance with that score in a six-woman playoff.
The 2022 U.S. Women’s Amateur is August 8-14 at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash.
Roller out at U.S. Junior Girls Championship
Jenni Roller of Jenks struggled to an 81 in the second round of stroke play and did not advance to match play at the U.S. Girls Junior Championship at Olde Stone in Bowling Green, Ky.
Much like in the first round, a pair of bad holes derailed Roller, including a quadruple bogey 8 on the first hole in which she had to take an uplayable lie and then hit into a hazard. She will put that behind her and prepare for the upcoming PGA Junior Championship Aug. 2-5 at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Palos Park, Ill.
