Five UCLA Golfers to Play in U.S. Women's Amateur

Aug. 1, 2005

Five UCLA golfers, including the defending champion, will tee it up at the 105th U.S. Women's Amateur in Roswell, GA at the Settindown Creek Course beginning on Aug. 1.

The U.S. Women's Amateur format features 36 holes of stroke play with the top 64 players advancing to the match play draw. The winner will be crowned on Sun., Aug. 7 after a 36-hole final.

"I am proud that so many of our players are competing in the U.S. Women's Amateur this week," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "It is a testament to the hard work and dedication these young players have shown to their games. I have no doubt that our players will have exceptional performances, and hopefully we will produce another champion at the end of the day."

Jane Park, the nation's No.2 ranked female amateur, won the event last year after finishing second in 2003. She signed a National Letter of Intent to enroll at UCLA in the fall. Park, 18, graduated from Rancho Cucamonga HS in June.

Amie Cochran, 19, enters the tournament as the defending stroke play medalist and the third-ranked U.S. amateur player. Last year at this event, she carded rounds of 70-71-141 (-3) before falling in the first round of match play. As a UCLA freshman last season, Cochran earned 2nd Team All-America honors, winning one collegiate tournament and finishing the season ranked 13th nationally.

Hannah Jun, 20, advanced to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks last year before falling to the eventual champion. A junior at UCLA, Jun was a key member of the Bruins' 2004 NCAA championship team and earned All-America honors as a freshman.

Two players who will enroll at UCLA this fall along with Park are Ryann O'Toole of San Clemente and Tiffany Joh of San Diego. O'Toole has won a pair of junior tournaments this summer and Joh is the nation's ninth-ranked junior player.
