BGSU's Bartell qualifies for U.S. Amateur
Lily Bartell, who recently completed her freshman year as a member of the Bowling Green State University women's golf team, has qualified for the 113th United States Amateur Championship.
"I am so very excited and this is definitely a great milestone for me and my game," said Bartell. "The first thing I did was contact my dad, who couldn't be there, and then my coach and teammates. It's so amazing to have a team that I know backs me up 100 percent and that we can support each other with all of our accomplishments.
''It's exciting to be able to represent the Carolinas at the championship and it's awesome that the tournament is so close to home."
Bartell's qualifying site would send 10 players (and two alternates) to the championship.
Bartell finished in a nine-way tie for sixth, following a 73 on Monday afternoon at Cougar Point Golf Course in Kiawah Island, S.C.
Bartell would birdie the 18th hole in a playoff to advance.
The amateur championships are at the Country Club of Charleston (S.C). from Aug. 5-11.
