Aideen Walsh staged a remarkable comeback to come from two down with four to play and win to book her spot in the last-32 of the US Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship.

Walsh won holes fifteen, sixteen and seventeen to turn her last-64 tie with Ina Kim-Schaad on its head as she went in front for the first time in the match at Stonewall, North Course.

The Lahinch woman made a par on the par-5 18th to advance to the last-32 where she will tackle Sarah Lebrun Ingram at 12.30pm Irish time in the opening match of the round.


Clandeboye’s Jessica Ross fought back from three down to one down against Isabella Dilisio on the back nine but ultimately saw her comeback come up agonisingly short as she was beaten 2UP on the 18th hole to bow out of the championship on her debut in America.

Meanwhile, Hugh Foley is the lone Irish survivor in the US Mid-Amateur Championship and will tee off against Tory Edwards in the last-64 after defending champion Matthew McClean was eliminated after 36 holes of strokeplay.
