Nicole Morales settled down late in the round on Monday and salvaged a 4-over par 75 at the Country Club of Charleston during the first round of stroke-play qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship. The 17-year-old from South Salem who has committed to play at the University of Alabama began the round with consecutive bogeys, and was 4-over through 10 holes, but finished with eight straight pars. She is tied for 38th. Only the top 64 players move on to match play. Just one play managed to break par today.
