Doris Chen Finishes Tied For 50th At U.S. Women's Open|
June 30, 2013
USC's Doris Chen finished tied for 50th at the 2013 U.S. Women's Open Championship on Sunday (June 30) at the Sebonack G.C. in Southampton, N.Y.
Chen, a WGCA All-American second teamer as a 2013 sophomore after earning 2012 first team honors as a freshman, shot a 4-over 76 on Sunday to finish the tourney at 15-over 303. Chen helped USC win the 2013 NCAA title in May and last week made the final of the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links.
Three former Trojans finished slightly better than Chen.
Former USC All-American Lizette Salas, a 2011 graduate, and 1998 NCAA champion Jennifer Rosales both shot a 2-over 74 on Sunday and finished tied for 20th at 8-over 296. They each earned $37,920.
Dewi Claire Schreefel, a teammate of Salas' on the 2008 NCAA team title squad, shot a 3-over 75 on Sunday and finished tied for 36th with an 11-over 299. She earned $18,263.
Eleven current, former and future Women of Troy, more than from any school, competed at this year's Open. Not making the cut were current players Annie Park and Kyung Kim, former Trojans Nicole Castrale, Irene Cho, Belen Mozo and Candi Kung, and incoming freshman Gabriella Then.
Inbee Park, the world's top-ranked player, won the Open by finishing with a 8-under 280 to post a 4-shot victory as she joined Babe Zaharias in 1950 as the only players to win the first three majors of the year. It was Park's second U.S. Women's Open title. She was one of only three players to finish under par on Sebonack's challenging conditions of strong winds and tricky greens.
