AUGUSTA, Ga. – Virginia golfers Amanda Sambach (Davidson, N.C.) and Beth Lillie (Fullerton, Calif.) completed their play at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. Due to a weather delay on Thursday, Sambach had to finish her second round Friday morning. She tied with three other players for 30th place and participated in a four-player playoff for the final spot into Saturday’s final round field.

Sambach made pars on the first three playoff holes to come down to a head-to-head battle with Germany’s Paula Schulz-Hanssen for the chance to advance. Playing on the 18th hole, Sambach recorded a bogey after her approach shot came up well short of the pin position on the par-five hole. Schulz-Hanssen used a tap-in par to claim the final position in the finals field.

Sambach finished her two rounds at 6-over 150. She shot 76 during the second round. Lillie, who completed her second round on Thursday, shot 10-over 154.

Both players joined the entire 72-player field and played a practice round at Augusta National, the site of the events final round, on Friday.

They will rejoin their UVA teammates Sunday for a match play competition against Georgia in Athens, Ga.
