College of Charleston rising senior C.C. Buford and rising junior Mary Chandler Bryan wrapped up their exciting experiences at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, respectively.
The two Cougars, who became the first CofC women to qualify for the amateur since 2005, just missed the cut after the first two rounds at Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N.Y., before the tournament starts its match play portion.
Bryan finished +8 (75, 73 = 148), while Buford trailed closely behind, carding scores of 78 and 71 (+9) for a two-round total of 149. Interestingly, Bryan still had to complete her second round earlier this morning, but lost in a playoff after eight players finished Tuesday at +8.
Buford and Bryan should help CofC defend its women’s CAA golf title in 2015 as the Cougars won the crown for the first time last spring. The ‘Cougs ended the year in postseason play, placing 22nd overall (299-308-307—914) at the NCAA Division I East Regional Championship in Tallahassee, Fla.
The USGA also did a very well done feature story on Buford and her unique path to college golf, which can be found by clicking here.
