Kentucky sophomore Anna Hack began play on golf’s biggest stage this week in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open.
Hack is one of 25 amateur golfers in the 156-player field. On Thursday, she fired an opening round 80 (8-over-par) on the 6,783 layout in San Martin, California. The Paducah native qualified in May for the world’s premier golf championship during a sectional qualifier in St. Louis.
Hack’s appearance in this year’s U.S. Women’s Open marks the second straight appearance for a Kentucky Wildcat in the national championship. Former UK women’s golfer Mallory Blackwelder competed in the 2015 tournament.
