On Monday, 13 of the 39 competitors in the field list their residency in Massachusetts, including Rebecca Skoler, Angela Garvin, and Gabrielle Shieh, who competed this past week in the 44th Girls’ Junior PGA Championship at Keney Park Golf Course in Hartford, Connecticut. All competitors will look to join Norton’s Shannon Johnson, a member at Thorny Lea Golf Club, who is exempt into the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship as a result of her victory at last year’s U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship.

In addition to the Bay Staters in the field, Florida’s Alexa Pano, who was born in Massachusetts and moved south when she was young, will look to advance to her fourth straight U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship. The 14-year old golfer, who is currently ranked as the top golfer in the class of 2022 and is in the top-10 of the Rolex AJGA Rankings, is a former Drive, Chip and Putt national champion who competed in the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur earlier this year.

Tee times will begin off the first tee at 7:00 a.m. and last until 9:12 a.m.
