Megha Ganne plays her tee shot at the second hole during the quarterfinal round at the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point.

WEST POINT – The path to the quarterfinals of the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur was a rough climb for Megha Ganne.

To make up for it, her 4 and 3 win over Caroline Canales was, as Ganne said, a peaceful day to make it to the semifinals of the tournament.

“It was a little weird not having to catch my breath every shot,” Ganne said. “I knew that my game was where I needed it to be to get this far this week, if not further.”
