The Women

Performances of the week

 

Gillman third after second U.S. Amateur win

 

Kristen Gillman moves three places to third on the World Amateur Golf RankingTM thanks to her second U.S. Women's Amateur Championship victory. Gillman defeated Korea’s Jiwon Jeon 7&6 at the Golf Club of Tennessee.

 

There was a time when the 20-year-old from Austin, Texas thought she’d never attain the heights she reached with her first win in 2014. The University of Alabama student suffered a wrist injury four years ago which ultimately cost her a place in the 2016 Curtis Cup. No wonder she couldn’t stop the tears after her second win.

 

Jeon makes a one-ranking rise to ninth as a result of her runner-up finish.

 

Li and Selin top U.S. Women’s Am qualifying

 

American Lucy Li and Korea’s Hyun Selin finished top qualifiers in the U.S. Women’s Am with matching 9-under 133 totals. Li breaks into the top 10 by moving one place to ninth, while Selin is 50 places better off in 197th. Northern Ireland’s Olivia Mehaffey was two shots further back in third place and makes a two-ranking rise to 22nd.

Yealimi Noh breaks back into the world top 20 thanks to her impressive summer streak. The young American racked up five wins in six events, culminating in the Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship.
