Through two match-play rounds at the Women's Amateur, UCLA has been the clear winner. The reigning national champions had five golfers qualify for the championship and four made match play. Those four golfers -- Stephanie Kono, Tiffany Lua, Lee Lopez and Erynne Lee (who will be a freshman this fall) -- are a combined 8-0 after two rounds. Keep in mind, Brianna Do, who failed to make match play, won the Women's Amateur Public Links title in June.
The Bruins will lose at least one golfer this afternoon as Kono and Lua are facing each other for the third time in USGA competition. Kono owns a 2-0 advantage.
Lopez certainly has performed better at Rhode Island C.C. than she did at the WAPL when she fell in the first round after being one of the top seeds.
"I think I am a lot more patient this week," said the 21-year-old from Whittier, Calif., who will be a junior. "I'm out her to have a nice time this week and work on my game."
When told of her teammates' succes after round two, Lopez added: "I'm really proud of all my teammates. It's nice to have people like that to practice with."
