UCLA senior Brianna Do won the USGA qualifier at Industry Hills Monday and will be playing in the U.S. Women's Open, July 5-8 at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wisc.

Do posted a 36-hole score of 139 (-4) and earned one of four available qualifying spots. She plans to play in the U.S. Women's Open as a professional after leading the Bruins to an eighth place finish at the NCAA Championship last week.

Monday's victory was vindication after losing in a five-player playoff for the Women's Open seven years ago.

"That was a heartbreaker my very first year," she said. "I really haven't come close since then."

But she has improved. Last year she won the U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks Championship, and this season recorded the Bruins' best result at the national championship tournament, tying for 14th place.

On Monday, Do played the shorter Zaharias Course in three-under 68 and came back in the afternoon round with a one-under par 71 on the Eisenhower Course.

"I just looked at it as another 18-hole tournament," she said of her approach to the afternoon round. "I started with two birdies and took it from there."

Although she will graduate from UCLA in three weeks, Do plans to make her professional debut at the Ladies Titan Tire Challenge in Marion, IA, June 8-10.

Two other former UCLA players, Maria Jose Uribe and Stephanie Kono are alternate qualifiers for the U.S. Women's Open.
