SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Dawn Woodard topped the 64 match-play qualifiers Sunday in the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur, following her opening 3-under 69 with a 1-over 73 in cool, windy conditions at Briggs Ranch.
The 38-year-old Woodard, from Greer, S.C., was the only player to finish under par.
``It was chilly starting out, but the big factor was the wind,'' Woodard said. ``There was at least a two- to three-club difference from yesterday. I just tried to err on the safe side and take big numbers out of play.''
Meghan Stasi of Oakland Park, Fla., finished three strokes back after a 71 in the event limited to players 25 and older.
Defending champion Ellen Port advanced with rounds of 76 and 75. The 51-year-old Port, from St. Louis, won the USGA Senior Women's Amateur last month.
