GLEN COVE, N.Y. – Team Canada’s Brooke Henderson advanced to the U.S. Women’s Amateur quarterfinal by winning her match Thursday afternoon at Nassau Country Club.
Henderson, 16, was all square through seven holes, but eventually pulled ahead, defeating Dylan Kim of Piano, Tex., 3&2. The Smiths Falls, Ont. native will carry her momentum from a very successful summer season into Friday’s match. The world’s no. 2 ranked female amateur is set to take on Alison Lee of Valencia, Calif. at 12:55 EDT.
Fellow Canadian and Team Canada teammate, Augusta James, fell in a nail-biting, 20-hole match to Hannah O’Sullivan of Paradise Valley, Ariz. James, of Bath, Ont., is coming off a win at the Canadian Women’s Amateur last week and will surely be looking forward to some rest after another strong performance at Nassau.
