2014 U.S. Women's Open Sectional Qualifying Begins Today

It looks like the USGA is finally getting a little more serious about giving us timely updates on the progress of Sectional Qualifying for the 2014 U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst.  They've also provided us with an easier-to-find list of players who are already fully exempt into the biggest tournament in women's golf.

What they could still do a better job of is linking to the actual tournament sites.  For instance, today's qualifier at the Honors Golf Club in Carrollton, TX, has a fantastic field list that includes Maria McBride, Ariya Jutanugarn, Ashleigh Simon, Thidapa Suwannapura, Belen Mozo, Jaye Marie Green, Ryann O'Toole, Vicky Hurst, Giulia Molinaro, Lisa McCloskey, Maria Hernandez, Paola Moreno, and Casey Danielson.  Would it have been so hard to post the link on the USGA Sectional Qualifying page?  Along with one to the live leaderboard?

Every year thousands of people come to Mostly Harmless for a comprehensive list of U.S. Women's Open sectional qualifying sites with live links to relevant and timely information.  Unfortunately, I don't have time this week to do this work for the USGA.  I recommend following the thread at Seoul for faster information than you're likely to get from the USGA!  But you'd think by now they'd have figured out how to do it themselves!

with their new billion dollar deal with Fox money shouldn't be the problem. :) I might be caddying in two qualifiers this month.
