Mia Kness Qualifies for US Women's Amateur

Mia Kness, Seton Hall recruit and daughter of our tournament director Kim Kness, has punched her ticket to the 2017 U.S. Women's Amateur to be played in Chula Vista CA at San Diego Country Club.  Mia's score of 68 tied her for low medalist honors with Thailand's Wad Phaewchimplee at a sectional qualifier held at Walnut Grove Country Club in Dayton Ohio.

Mia will be one of 156 players to contest the 36-hole qualifier on August 7 and 8, hoping to be among the top 64 to advance to match play.  Amateur champions include many recognized names as Babe Deidrikson Zaharia, Julie Inster, Lydia Ko, Danielle Kang and our own Carol Semple Thompson.

We wish Mia the very best of luck!!
