Garner Wins Medalist Honors; Match Play Begins for Women’s Utah State Amateur

Julie McMullin has enjoyed the last two days of qualifying for the Women’s Utah State Amateur at the beautiful Logan Golf and Country Club. As the defending champion she was already assured of having the number one seed position in the match play portion that begins Thursday. While most of the other players were wrenching on every shot in the qualifying McMullin coasted around the course with scores of 72-79 while getting acquainted with the course.
 
Getting acquainted with the course didn’t seem to be necessary for Lea Garner who shot an opening round of 68 and coasted to a 72 in the second round and was qualifying medalist with a comfortable five shot margin, two under par 140.
 
Sixteen players advanced to the match play segment of the tournament with Courtney Smith earning the final spot in a playoff which pits her against McMullin in the first round. Hannah Herman won the 15th spot in that playoff and faces Lea Garner.
 
The two players who lost in the playoff were Lauren Atkinson and Haley Dunn. The playoff was between those who shot 157 for the two days.
 
There will be two rounds of match play Thursday with the semifinals set for Friday morning and the championship match Friday afternoon.
