Grace Summerhays second woman ever to qualify for match play at Utah State Amateur
Grace Summerhays became the second woman ever to qualify for match play at Utah State amateur. The following excerpt highlights this victory:
"Meanwhile, Summerhays’ sister, Grace, who turned 15 on Tuesday, celebrated her birthday by becoming the second woman ever to make match play at the State Am. She fired an even-par 72 on the Gold Course to finish at 2-over 146 and tied for 29th in stroke-play qualifying.
“I don’t really have anything to lose at this point,” Grace said after matching Annie Thurman Young’s feat from 2004.
Preston seconded that notion, saying he is “super excited for her” and that he knew she could do it.
“She’s a 14-year-old girl,” Preston said, briefly forgetting the birthday. “Whoever plays her is going to have a tremendous amount of pressure on them.”
That will be former USU golfer Brennan Coburn."
