CHARLESTON, S.C. – Emily Tubert is on the back end of a changing of the guard in women’s amateur golf. She’s the only member of the eight-woman 2012 Curtis Cup squad who remains an amateur, and thus the only one playing in the U.S. Women’s Amateur at the Country Club of Charleston.

“It’s definitely something that I’m aware of,” Tubert says, ticking off on her fingers her three teammates (Lisa McCloskey, Austin Ernst and Brooke Pancake) who earned LPGA cards at Q-School last fall. “... I know so many people out here but ...

— The golfers have arrived and taken to the Country Club of Charleston course, readying for the 2013 U.S. Women's Amateur. Here are 5 Things to Know from Sunday:

• • •

1. YOUNGSTER'S REALISTIC APPROACH: Lucy Li, 10, played nine holes Sunday dressed in a multi-colored, striped T-shirt and a yellow skirt with flouncy ruffles. Length will be a little bit of an obstacle at the U.S. Women’s Amateur for young Li, but she’s already decided that Nos. 1 and 18, both par 4s, might just have to be played as par 5s this ...

Brooke Henderson, the top-ranked Canadian women’s golfer, captured her first Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship Friday.

The 15-year-old Henderson became the championship's youngest winner after shooting a tournament-best 5-under 66 July 26. She finished at 9-under 275 at Club de Golf Beloeil in Beloeil, Quebec.

Mississippi State's Ally McDonald gets a hug from athletic director Scott Stricklin during the third round of the 2013 Women's NCAA Championship.

The Mississippi State junior charged through the match-play bracket at Pinehurst (N.C.) Resort, finishing off junior golfer Yueer Cindy Feng, 3 and 2, in Saturday’s final match.

Lucy Li, 10, after qualifying for the 2013 U.S. Women's Amateur.

Ashlan Ramsey

Ashlan Ramsey is ready to become a Clemson Tiger this fall as a member of the university’s inaugural women’s golf team.

“Starting something new at such a place is a fun and exciting experience and making history as Clemson’s first women’s team,” Ashlan said. “I feel like I’ll be able to get better here and improve my game.”

There isn’t much improvement needed for the Milledgeville, Ga., native.

Ramsey is even more prepared for Clemson after coming off three consecutive amateur wins before heading to the Women’s Trans-National Amateur in California next week ...

Casie Cathrea watches her shot from the 18th fairway during the final round of the 2013 U.S. Women's Open.
Casie Cathrea watches her shot from the 18th fairway during the final round of the 2013 U.S. Women's Open.

— It is nearly impossible to miss Casie Cathrea on the golf course. The 17-year-old committed to Oklahoma State University in the fall of 2011, and shortly thereafter began wearing bold punches of Cowgirls orange.

On Sunday, that meant day-glo orange shorts and a dinner-platter sized OSU belt buckle. In her first U.S. Women’s Open start, Cathrea finished as the low amateur, and that’s mostly because of a final-round 70 at Sebonack Golf Club. It was her first sub-par score of the week, and still included bogeys at Nos. 17 and 18.

Cathrea was one ...

Karinn Dickinson

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – For some LPGA-bound amateurs, college (or even high school) can seem a race to greater things, and sometimes a safety net until those greater things pan out. Karinn Dickinson, however, belongs to a different school of thought – one of ample preparation.

In early-week U.S. Women’s Open programs, Dickinson’s name – one that’s largely unknown – is preceded by the lowercase amateur “a.” The letter explains why Dickinson has disappeared somewhat over the past two years. After four years on the University of Washington roster, Dickinson wasn’t quite ready in the spring of 2011 to ...

Amateur Lydia Ko waits to play a shot during a practice round prior to the start of the 2013 U.S. Women's Open.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – A swarm of bright yellow surrounded Lydia Ko as she wrapped up a pre-tournament news conference at the U.S. Women’s Open. Ko, the 16-year-old wunderkind, gave autographs to a handful of girls her age from the First Tee of Metropolitan New York.

That moment with her peers probably seemed more awkward for Ko than anything she’ll face inside the ropes later this week at Sebonack Golf Club. Ko was only 10 minutes removed from making this humble statement: “Just because I've won a couple tournaments, I don't think it means I'm ...
