Teens to meet in Public Links final
NESHANIC STATION, N.J. -- Ashlan Ramsey and Kyung Kim advanced to the 36-hole final in the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links, each winning two matches Friday at Neshanic Valley.
The 16-year-old Ramsey, from Milledgeville, Ga., beat Grace Na of Alameda, Calif., 3 and 1 in the morning quarterfinals, and edged Kim Kaufman of Clark, S.D., 1 up in the semifinals.
"I didn't know how far I would get this week," Ramsey said, "but now my goals have changed. I'll just play my game, fairways and greens."
The 18-year-old Kim, from Chandler, Ariz., topped Lakareber Abe of Angleton, Texas, 1 up in the quarterfinals, and edged Alice Jeong of Gardena, Calif., 3 and 2 in the semifinals.
"This one was tough," Kim said after the afternoon match. "After two matches today I'm pretty tired. My legs are tired and I have two blisters, one on each foot."
The tournament is limited to players who don't hold privileges at any course that doesn't extend playing privileges to the general public.
