Regan Qualifies for U.S. Amateur

PARKER, Colo. Kansas State senior Michelle Regan qualified for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship for the second consecutive year, as she fired a 5-over-par 77 to finish second at a sectional qualifying tournament at the Colorado Golf Club on Wednesday.


A native of Prairie Village, Kan., Regan was one stroke off the pace set by Katie Kempter of Albuquerque, N.M., who shot a 4-over-par 76.  Regan was one of four golfers to advance to the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship from the Denver qualifier. 


Regan led the Wildcat women’s golf team in six tournaments this past season, including claiming seven top-20 finishes.  She finished the season with a team-best 76.54 stroke average.  Regan posted a career-best 54-hole score of 216 to finish seventh at the Susie Maxwell Classic in April.   


Regan will compete in the 107th U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, Aug. 6-12, at the Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Ind.
