The 2017 USGA Girls Junior Qualifier was played at Lake Forest on Thursday, June 29. The clouds were threatening at 7:30 am but by the first tee time at 8 am things were looking promising. The winds picked up through the day but the girls battled the winds and some tough putts. We had 34 qualifiers from Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, and Texas.

They all were competing for three player and two alternate slots for the national championship to be held July 24-29,2017 at Boone Valley Golf Club in Augusta, MO.
