2014 U.S. Women's Open Sectional Qualifying: May 12 and May 14 Results from HI, PA, CA, CO

Once again, Seoul is the easiest place to find full results from recent U.S. Women's Open Sectional Qualifying sites.

For instance, the USGA web page tells us that Xyra Suyetsugu won the Honolulu, HI, qualifier with a score of 145 and that Mariel Galdiano and Cassy Isagawa are alternates at 146.  But how did the other 22 entrants do?  Check out Seoul Sisters!

In Butler, PA, amateur Bailey Tardy's 145 beat out amateur Jessica Porvasnik's 146 and Jennifer Song's 148 for medalist honors, while Laura Diaz and Sydnee Michaels had to settle for alternate status after firing 149s.  You'd think maybe there'd be more information on the USGA's twitter feed, right?  But you actually can find it via the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association site (if you scroll down far enough on their championship central page!)  Once you do that, you'll see that Perrine Delacour, Amelia Lewis, and Rachel Rohanna were the biggest names not to qualify of the 75 players who teed it up at the start of the day on Monday.

Coming up later today are qualifiers at Oak Valley in Beaumont, CA, and The Heritage at Westmoor in Westminster, CO.  I'll let you know what I find out about them when I can find it--so far no dice!

[Update 1 (9:19 pm):  Here are the Colorado results.]

[Update 2 (9:24 pm):  Here's the link to next Monday's Northern California qualifier at Half Moon Bay.]

[Update 3 (9:28 pm):  Here are the pairings for next Monday's Chicago-area qualifier.]

[Update 4 (5/15/14, 9:34 pm):  Isn't it weird that the Beaumont results aren't even up on the USGA page?  Were they wildfired out?]

It does make you wonder where the priorities of the bodies running these organisations are Bruce. I have to say the LET with their live streaming and informative scoreboard/webpage are doing a better job at promoting the ladies game there than the LPGA and I can imagine they have a fraction of the their budget to work with. You can't even get a course and weather report before play so you have an idea of the conditions for the day. It's always there on the LET's website.

This one's not the LPGA's fault; the USGA runs the U.S. Women's Open. That said, I do think the LPGA should up its game!
