ROCK HILL, SC–Winthrop junior golfer Jennifer Dilger has qualified for the 2013 U.S. Women’s Amateur by shooting a 76 in the California USGA Amateur Qualifier last week at Glendora Country Club, nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Glendora, CA.

Dilger, who resides in Palmdale, CA, tied for 5th out of 81 players who finished the round. She will now return to South Carolina to compete in the 113th U.S. Women’s Amateur which will take place August 5-11 at the Country Club of Charleston.

“We are excited to have one of our own represented in this prestigious event,” said Winthrop women’s golf head coach Jodi Wendt.
