Song, Salas face off at AM
Thursday, August 6, 2009
ST. LOUIS — The day’s most compelling story fell short in the drama department as Jennifer Song did away with her good friend and USC teammate Lizette Salas, 4 and 2, in the Round of 32.
Song was nearly flawless with her putter as she had just eight putts through the first eight holes and built a 3-up lead.
This year’s Women’s Publinx champ won Nos. 15 and 16 to close out the match and send her friend packing.
“It was very tough,” Song said about playing Salas, “but you’re supposed to have a winner at the end of the match.
“I was rooting for her inside.”
Song said the two didn’t share any poignant words after the match, but she said she’ll speak to Salas when they both get back to school.
Song, who is trying to become the second player to win the WAPL and Women's Am in the same year since Pearl Sinn in 1988, will face the winner of the Cydney Clanton-Nannette Hill match. Clanton is currently 1-up through 15 holes.
