The United States Golf Association’s 121st U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship is being staged at Westchester Country Club’s West Course in Rye, New York.
The course will play at 6,488 yards and par 72 for the championship.
The U.S. Women’s Amateur features two days—36 holes—of stroke play. Then, the 156-player field will be cut and only the top 64 golfers will advance to match play, which starts Wednesday and concludes with a 36-hole final on Sunday.
Golf Channel and Peacock will have TV and streaming coverage.
Suthavee Chanachai had never tried to qualify for a USGA event before. After 18 holes, she holds the solo lead.
Suthavee Chanachai, ranked 468th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, shot the low round of the opening round of the U.S. Women’s Amateur.
Chanachai, a recent graduate of New Mexico State, carded a 3-under 69 on Monday to lead after the first day of the 36-hole stroke-play portion of the championship. This is her USGA debut, and, as a matter of fact, she had never even tried to qualify for a USGA event before this one.
After her round, she was asked if she had any pre-championship expectations.
“The goal is basically focusing on the process. I don’t want to put expectations out there. If I play good, I play good. If I play bad, I play bad. It’s golf,” she said.
Chanachai, who is from Thailand, had five birdies in her round, thanks to some precise approach shots. She said all five putts were holed from within 15 feet.

THIS WEEK IN LATIN AMERICA GUATEMALA: The firing of an anti-corruption prosecutor has sparked an angry reaction from civil society and demands for the resignations of President Alejandro Giammattei and Attorney General María Consuelo Porras. Porras came under fire last month Juan Francisco Sandoval, a special prosecutor appointed to support the CICIG, an international body set up to investigate corruption in Guatemala. After the CICIG was disbanded in 2019 by President Jimmy Morales, Sandoval’s office took over many of the international body’s investigations. Porras’ was that the latter had refused to follow instructions and had interfered with the functioning of her office. In a...

Charles Taylor, head armourer of Movie Armaments Group Canada, called the news "shocking."READ MORE: "This is not something that you would expect for the amount of safety, and the protocols that we have with all master armours on movie sets," Taylor told CTV News Channel on Friday.When filming...
PITTSBURGH—The mood within the Maple Leafs is not good.It’s far from good after a disinterested squad lost to an injury-riddled Pittsburgh Penguins lineup in embarrassing fashion, 7-1 at PPG Paints Arena.“The mood ain’t great,” said defenceman Jake Muzzin. “When you lose like that is not a good mood. But it’s early in the season. It’s a test for us. And let’s see how we respond.“You learn from it. You understand it. It’s very hard to win in this league and we’re going to have to work a lot harder to win.”The Leafs continue to have trouble scoring. Coach Sheldon Keefe admitted he was down on the top power-play unit. He had also been combative with the media after Friday’s loss when — fairly — asked about a player whose ice time had dwindled, only to be told...
