Seong v Yin in final of US girls' championship

TULSA, Oklahoma – Eun Jeong Seong and Angel Yin have survived two rounds of stroke play and five rounds of match play, and now the long-hitting teenagers will meet with the 2015 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship title on the line.
Seong, 15, from South Korea, and Yin, 16, of Arcadia, California, won their quarter-final and semi-final matches on Friday to advance to Saturday’s 36-hole championship final at Tulsa Country Club.
Both semi-final matches highlighted the strength and poise of their victors, who never trailed in their respective matches. Yin drained a match-clinching 18-foot par putt on the 18th hole to eliminate Evelyn Arguelles, 17, of Mexico. Seong earned a 6-and-4 win over Jayna Choi, 14, of Collierville, Tenn., and has not yet played holes 16, 17 and 18 in the match-play stages.
