CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A day after shooting a U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship record 65 in the first round of stroke play, Rachel Rohanna is surviving the near 100 degree temperatures this afternoon at Charlotte Country Club.
At the turn of her second round of qualifying, the Ohio State sophomore has carded a birdie and a bogey, playing her first nine holes in even par. Rohanna is still 7 under through 27 holes.
U.S. Girls’ Junior champion Doris Chen is also on the course this afternoon and is currently 3 under for her round, 6 under total. Chen captured the junior title just two weeks ago, not far from here in Pinehurst. After winning that championship, she said the thing she looked most forward to this week was the ice cream.
With the heat index over 100, ice cream sounds pretty good.
