Rocklin resident Lynne Cowan and three others are headed to this year’s U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.
Cowan, the winner of this year’s California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, shot a medalist-earning 2-under 70 in a qualifier held Tuesday at par-72 Sonoma Golf Club. She’d post five birdies to go against three bogeys.
Finishing tied for second at 73 were Karen Garcia of Cool and Santa Cruz resident Sandy Woodruff. The fourth and final automatic spot went to Windsor’s Stacey Camara at 74.
Rachel Moreaux of San Rafael is the first alternate after shooting 75. Pat Cornett, the winner of this year’s NCGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, is the second alternate after a 76.
This year’s U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship will be held Sept. 26-Oct. 1 at Hillwood Country Club in Tennessee.
