Kung and Farr-Kaye Advance to Finals


USGAQualifying medallist Candie Kung of Taiwan and Missy Farr-Kaye will square off Sunday for the title of U.S. Womens Amateur Public Links Champion.
Kung, 19, defeated Karla Jane Shuldt of Elk River, Minn. 3-and-2 in the semifinals to advance into the championship match, while Farr-Kaye beat out Allison Johnson of Amarillo, Tex. 5-and-4.
You can not let up on this golf course, claimed Farr-Kaye, who hails from Scottsdale, Ariz. You really have to pay attention.
Farr-Kaye is looking to follow in the footsteps of her sister, Heather Farr, who won this event in 1984.
At 33 years of age, should she claim victory, she would become the first player over the age of 22 to win this event.
Unfortunately, her sister will not be in attendance should she win. She passed away from breast cancer in 1994.
Farr-Kaye, a breast cancer survivor herself - and mother of two - would love nothing more than to earn the same championship.
Im really trying to stay focused, she claimed.
The Womens Amateur Public Links Championship is in its 25th season. It is one of 13 events hosted annually by the USGA, ten of which are strictly designated for non-professionals.
