Sooner trio makes the cut

NORMAN — Oklahoma’s trio of golfers all secured spots in the field of 64 Tuesday in the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club.

Anne-Catherine Tanguay finished at even par after a second-round 75. Chirapat Jao-Javanil shot 75 in the second round to finish at 3 over.

The cut fell at 9-over par, which caused Taylor Schmidt to sweat a little as she was playing her final holes early Tuesday evening.

Schmidt thought she put herself in serious jeopardy with a bogey at No. 16 and a double bogey at No. 17. A par at No. 18 was enough to get her into the clubhouse at 8 over.

“I survived,” Schmidt said.

Tanguay and Jao-Javanil knew they had advanced to match play as soon as they finished their rounds. Both were looking forward to changing their outlooks with the beginning of match play.

“Now you just go,” Jao-Javanil said. “I’m sure I’m gonna take some shots tomorrow that I wouldn’t usually take. You don’t have to think much in match play. You can just go for everything.”

Jao-Javanil, who was a quarterfinalist in last year’s WPAL, has only made two birdies — one each round — through the first 36 holes.

Tanguay knows she must be aggressive, too.

“I’m gonna play a lot more aggressive tomorrow, and that will be good just for the thrill,” Tanguay said. “I’m looking forward to that.”


Local connections: Three players with state connections also advanced to match play. Oklahoma State’s Julie Yang joined Casey Danielson and Mariel Galdiano at 2-under-par following a Tuesday round of 70.

Former OU golfer Jade Staggs also advanced. The Moore native and Westmoore High School graduate shot 73 Tuesday to post a 5-over total.

“I feel confident and good about my game,” Staggs said. “I’m calm and at peace with where I’m at. I’m excited.”
