UC Davis freshman golfer Paige Lee became the third Aggie ever to earn a spot in the U.S. Women’s Open when she finished third at a sectional qualifying tournament on Monday at Half Moon Bay Golf Club.
Lee, an All-Big West first-team selection from nearby Folsom, used a birdie on the final hole to edge two other competitors for the U.S. Open berth. Former UCD standout Chelsea Stelzmiller was just two shots back at the event.
Stelzmiller and former Aggie Alice Kim are the other two UCD players who have played in a U.S. Open, as both qualified for the 2009 event.
This year’s U.S. Women’s Open will be held June 19-22 at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club’s Course No. 2 in the Village of Pinehurst, N.C.
