Virginia Tech graduate student, Amanda Hollandsworth, has qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open Championship. The Floyd, VA native won a 36-hole qualifier at Springfield Golf & Country Club held last Tuesday, April 25.
Hollandsworth finished the first round with a two under-par, 69. She followed that up with a one over-par of 72. Overall, she shot a one under-par 141. Only the top two tournament performers could earn a U.S. Women’s Open spot. Amanda just edged out Kent State’s Karoline Stormo who shot a one over-par 143, for the top spot.
Last year, Amanda helped the Virginia Tech Hokies qualify for their first ever appearance in the NCAA tournament.
