Stanford freshman Rachel Heck (right) and Junior Tour of Northern California member Jaclyn LaHa punched their tickets to this year’s U.S. Women’s Open at The Olympic Club after advancing through a 36-hole Sectional qualifier held Monday at Marin Country Club.
Heck, who earned medalist honors, led the way with a score of 8-under 136 thanks to rounds of 66 and 70. The Tennesee transplant has been on fire. She recently won the Pac-12 Championship, which marked her third win in six starts this spring.
LaHa, a 16-year-old member at Castlewood CC, posted rounds of 70-67 to claim the second automatic berth.
The first alternate spot went to Yu Sang Hou at 141.
