Kang-Pancake and Jutanugarn-Ernst Intriguing Match-Ups at U.S. Women's Amateur
They all got there in different ways--Austin Ernst with fantastic ball-striking and total domination of a struggling Stephanie Kono, Moriya Jutanugarn by raising the pressure on a game and scrappy Casey Danielson, Danielle Kang by letting Demi Frances Runas beat herself, and Brooke Pancake by hanging in there against Erynne Lee for 21 grueling holes--and today they have to dig deep in the semifinals of the U.S. Women's Amateur. Can Pancake find something on the practice range to give her the confidence to take on defending champion Kang? Can Jutanugarn knock off yet another elite amateur, this time NCAA individual champion Ernst? Stay tuned!
