MSU’s McDonald set for U.S. Women’s Am

Rising Mississippi State junior Ally McDonald will compete in the U.S. Women’s Amateur, hosted at the Country Club of Charleston, S.C., beginning today.

She tees off at 11:50 a.m. CST today and 6:50 a.m. Tuesday.

“I have been playing pretty well the last few weeks so I’m excited to get on the course and compete,”
McDonald said.

McDonald, from Fulton, enters the event as the 12th-ranked amateur in the world and the third ranked amateur in the U.S. after winning the North & South Amateur at Pinehurst two weeks ago.

The Women’s Am begins with two rounds of stroke play and the top 64 players out of the field of 156 will advance to match play.
