FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Qualifying medalist Bailey Tardy and defending champion Minjee Lee won their opening matches Wednesday in the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship.
The 16-year-old Tardy, from Norcross, Ga., won the final two holes with pars to beat Abbey Carlson of Lake Mary, Fla., 1 up at Sycamore Hills Golf Club.
"It was really hard to make birdies today. Nothing was going in for me," Tardy said. "In the end it didn't matter. It was stressful, but I won."
The 17-year-old Lee, from Australia, topped Kaitlyn Papp of Austin, Texas, 5 and 4. Lee won the Australian Women's Amateur in January.
