Win invited to play in the Womens Amateur Championship

By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Tom Win has always wanted to play golf in Scotland at St. Andrews Links.

He and his wife Pam along with their daughter Lizzie made the trip three weeks ago to cross it off his bucket list along with visiting three other courses. Lizzie is fresh off a runner-up finish at the Big East Women's Golf Championship after graduating three years ago from St. Ursula Academy.

While visiting Edinburgh Castle on the first day of this bucket list trip, Lizzie checked her email and discovered the Royal and Ancient accepted her application to play in the Womens Amateur Championship - the equivalent to the United States Golf Association's U.S. Women's Amateur.

"We were scrambling the last two weeks to put this together," Lizzie's mother Pam Win said.

Thanks to Win's golf resume - which includes her No. 521 World Amateur Golf Ranking - she is in the field of 144 golfers next week at the Royal County Down Golf Club in Northern Ireland. Win finished second this past season at the Big East Conference Women's Golf Championship.

There is no qualifier for this event. For Win - a rising senior at Seton Hall University - this is her first overseas competition. Unless of course you count the rounds with her dad on his bucket list trip three weeks ago.
