Only Uribe Remains at U.S. Women's Amateur

Aug. 9, 2007

Incoming freshman Maria Jose Uribe was the only UCLA player remaining at the 107th U.S. Women's Amateur following Thursday's matches at Crooked Stick GC in Carmel, Ind.

Uribe, 17, won both her matches Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals on Friday. Junior Tiffany Joh won her second round match, but fell in the afternoon. Sophomore Sydnee Michaels lost her morning match.

Uribe defeated Candace Schepperle 2 & 1 Thursday morning. Uribe took an early one-hole lead with a birdie at the second. Schepperle squared it at the third with a par and took the lead at the fifth with another par. She enjoyed a 2-up lead through the 12th before a double-bogey, bogey stretch allowed Uribe to square the match. Both players made par at the 14th, but Schepperle's consecutive bogeys at the 15th and 16th gave Uribe a 2-up lead. When the 17th was halved, Uribe had an afternoon tee time.

In the round of 16, Uribe beat Emma Jandel 2-up. Jandel had defeated Michaels in 21 holes earlier in the day. The Colombian made a birdie at the 18th to seal the victory.

Joh held a 2-up lead over Korea's Ho Na Jang at the 10th hole in the round of 16. But a bogey at the 11th cut the lead to one. A birdie by the Korean at the par 5 15th squared the match and the players halved the next four holes, before Joh bogeyed the 21st hole (#2).

In her morning match Joh defeated Andrea Messer 6 & 5, wrapping up the victory at the 13th hole. Messer, who needed 27 holes to win her first round match on Monday, never was a factor, falling four down through six holes.

Michaels fell in extra holes after making a bogey on the 21st hole. She held a 2-up lead at the 14th before making three straight bogeys to allow Jandel back into the match. Both players made par at 18, 19 and 20.
