NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame women’s golf sophomores Emma Albrecht and Isabella DiLisio teamed up to shoot an eight-under par 64 to capture medalist honors at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Qualifier at The Country Club of Hudson in Hudson, Ohio on Thursday (Sept. 1).
Albrecht and DiLisio won by four strokes over the second-place team and, with the victory, they have advanced to the 2017 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship.
“We hit a lot of shots close,” DiLisio told the Northern Golf Association after the win. “We had a combined eight birdies. This was a great momentum starter going into the college season.”
“The course was in great shape, the greens rolled fast and true,” Albrecht added. “We never birdied the same hole which helped a lot.”
The 2017 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship will be held on May 27-31 at the Robert Trent Jones signature course at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The Fighting Irish women’s golf team opens the 2016-17 season at Oklahoma’s Schooner Fall Classic, which will be played on September 24-26 at the Belmar Golf Club in Norman, Oklahoma.
