She shot an opening round of 84 and that was good enough for a tie for 61st place. The top 64 players advance to match play. That tournament is being played at Biltmore Forest CC in Asheville, North Carolina.
At the men’s Mid-Am former Utah State Am champion Jon Wright shot an opening round of 75 and is in 103rd place and has to have an especially good round Sunday to reach match play.
