The first three scores are in from the 11-for-7 playoff for the final spots. Cindy Ha from Demarest, N.J., virtually assured herself of a spot with a birdie-3. Emily Wright of Mason, Ohio had a 4 and Ri Hyang Park of Japan bogeyed the hole and at the moment appears out of the running.
The second group of four players just completed No. 10, with Kelley Walsh of Boca Raton, Fla., advancing through with a birdie-3. Hannah Sodersten, Marissa Dodd and Mariana Sims all made 4s.
One more foursome left and it's starting to get dark outside.
Dottie Ardina and Alejandra Cangrejo, a semifinalist last year, each remained alive in the playoff by making 4s. Taylor Moreno and Janie Jackson were eliminated with bogeys. Park also has been eliminated.
The six players who made 4s are now playing off for the last five spots. USGA officials have deemed there is sufficient light to play one more hole.
The par-4 11th hole failed to decide the final spot as all six remaining golfers made 4s. The playoff will resume on Wednesday morning at the 12th hole. The remaining players are Cangrejo, Sodersten, Ardina, Wright, Dodd and Sims.
