Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash., is making a strong push for medalist honors at the 2010 U.S. Women's Amateur. She is currently five under par for the round through 13 holes, with six birdies and just one bogey. Lee, 17, is no stranger to performing well at the Women's Amateur. Two years ago at Eugene (Ore.) Country Club, she advanced to the semifinals before losing to eventual champion Amanda Blumenherst.
Lee's younger sister, Katie, however, appears to be fighting just to make the match-play cut. The 14-year-old is three over for the round and 10 over for the championship. Katie and Erynne each played in the U.S. Girls' Junior three weeks ago at The Country Club of North Carolina. Both made match play, but were eliminated in the first round.
The low 64 scorers after today's second round will advance to the match-play portion of the championship, which begins on Wednesday. -- David Shefter
