Three UCLA female golfers are among the leaders to make the 36-hole cut at the U.S. Women's Amateur PubLinks Championships at Ocean Hammock Golf Course in Palm Coast, FL.
Sophomores Charlotte Mayorkas and Yvonne Choe and junior Hana Kim played their first rounds Tuesday and each is within reach of advancing to the 64-player match play draw after Wednesday's second round.
Mayorkas is tied for third after a one-under par 71, Choe is tied for 18th after posting a two-over par 74, and Kim is tied for 46th after a round of 78.
San Diego's Beth Allen, who finished second to Mayorkas at the San Diego City Amateur on Sunday, is the first round leader after posting a four-under par score of 68.
Mayorkas had five birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey on the first hole during her round. Choe, who advanced to the semifinals of the 2002 U.S. WAPL, boasted two birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey during her round.
Second round action continues Wednesday with the 64-player match play draw beginning Thursday.
