Andrea Lee plays her tee shot at the ninth hole through the round of 16 at the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point.

WEST POINT – It was all about survival for women’s amateur golfer Andrea Lee at Old Waverly on Thursday.

Lee fought back and outlasted Alexa Pano in 23 holes, like 5 playoff holes, to win a match she never ever lead in till the final hole at the U.S. Women’s Amateur.

“It was a mix of relief and excitement,” Lee mentioned. “I’m seriously hunting forward to getting back in the quarterfinals (nowadays).”

A birdie putt on No. 18 for Lee forced the playoff, and she mentioned she was shaking as she stood more than the putt. She drained it and forced a playoff that lasted 5 rounds as Pano and Lee forced ties on holes 1-four till the final hole on No. five.

The senior golfer for Stanford University mentioned that the day was difficult but she didn’t seriously consider about how tired she was till the round ended.
