Cowan, Tennant advance in first round of match play at US Senior Women’s Amateur Golf Championships

The defending champion and the top seed out of stroke play advanced in the opening round of match play at the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Golf Championships on Monday.

Cowan, who had the best score in the two-day stroke play competition, defeated Leigh Klasse 3 and 2 at Anchorage Golf Course.

Lara Tennant, the three-time defending champ, won her 19th consecutive match-play victory in the Senior Women’s Amateur, according to the USGA. The 4-and-2 victory over Mary Budke gave her the longest streak in the event since Carol Semple Thompson won 28 in a row between 1999 and 2003.

The match of the day may have been between Terri Frohnmayer of Meridian, Idaho, and Canadian Mary Ann Hayward. The two had to go four extra holes before Frohnmayer prevailed. The Round of 32 is set for Tuesday morning at AGC.
