Two more Canadians punched their tickets to the U.S. Women’s Open on Tuesday at sectional qualifying events in the United States.

Sue Kim, a Young Pro Squad member, closed at 5-under par (66-69) to tie for first at the Twin Hills Country Club event in Longmeadow, Mass., earning one of five available spots. The Langley, B.C. product will look to build on her T59 finish at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open.

Fellow B.C. native Taylor Kim of Surrey topped the leaderboard to earn medalist honours with a 2-under par score (71-71) at the Green Valley Country Club event in Green Valley, Calif. The Team Canada graduate marks the third B.C. native to qualify for the event—Amateur Squad’s Naomi Ko qualified earlier this month. Quebec’s Maude-Aimée Leblanc is the fourth Canadian to secure a spot so far, winning medalist honours last week.

The Canadian quartet will tee-it-up at the U.S. Women’s Open from July 4–10 at CordeValle in San Martin, Calif.
