All four golfers with Utah connections failed to make it to the match play portion at the U.S. Women’s Amateur at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Maryland, on Wednesday.

The 132-golfer field was cut to 64 after play was postponed Tuesday when Hurricane Isaias blew through the area. Wednesday’s cut came at 6-over-par 150, where six golfers survived a 15-golfer playoff.

Chanikan Yongyuan, who will be a junior at Southern Utah, had the best score of the four Wednesday with a 73, which left her at 152. Grace Summerhays, last month’s Utah Women’s Amateur who lives in Arizona, but resides in Utah every summer, also finished at 152 after her second straight 76.

Allysha Mae Mateo, a junior-to-be at BYU finished at 153 after shooting a 76, while four-time Utah Women’s Amateur champion Kelsey Chugg finished at 154, also shooting a 76 Wednesday.

Rachel Heck of Memphis, Tennessee, was the medalist at 140 with a second-round 71.
