On an unusually windy day at Chambers Bay Lurgan’s Annabel Wilson produced another roaring display at the US Women’s Amateur to progress to the semi-finals which take place later today.
Wilson took the lead on the first hole over America’s Catherine Rao and was never behind in the match but a bogey on the third tied the game before Wilson birdied eight before losing the tenth.
It was game time though when she came to the 15th where three pars in a row against three bogeys for Rao secured a solid 3&1 win.
Wilson will now face Monet Chun of Canada in the semi-finals with Japan’s Saki Baba and American Bailey Shoemaker facing off in the other semi.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever played this course in the wind and it really picked up on the back nine,” said Wilson a 21 year-old UCLA senior. “It becomes a completely different strategy. I had to adapt and I did that well out there.”
