Stasi & Lang Set To Battle For Semi's
Two of the most decorated women in Florida amateur golf are set to face off in the quarterfinals at the Women's Amateur Championship being played at Weston Hills Country Club.
The second seed, Meghan Stasi, was put to the test by Sue Cohn, of Palm Beach Gardens, in the second round of matches. Stasi, of Oakland Park, held a slight lead through most of the match, but Cohn got the match to all square heading into the 18th hole. On the par 5 18th, Cohn hit her approach to 15 feet behind the hole while Stasi had a much shorter approach and left herself with a 10 foot birdie putt. Cohn had a birdie putt right on line, but it ran out of steam and finished just short leaving Stasi with a putt to win the match. Stasi's putt appeared to miss right, but the ball hung on the lip for a brief second and then fell in the hole for a birdie and the win. Meghan Stasi, who is a three-time US Mid-Amateur Champion, will face off against three time US Senior Women's Amateur Champion, and Weston Hills member, Diane Lang in Thursday morning's quarterfinal match.
Kailey Walsh, the number one seed and high school senior from Boca Raton, defeated Tama Caldabugh, from Ponte Vedra Beach 4 & 3. Walsh will play Tovie St. Louis, from West Palm Beach in the quarterfinals.
The third seed, Samantha Marks, from Maitland, defeated local junior Marrissa Messana 5 & 3. Marks is a high school senior and is committed to play for University of North Carolina next year. Marks will play Wendi Golden, of Bradenton, in the quarterfinals. Golden was a member of the Florida Women's team at the USGA State Championship last year.
