INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – University of Cincinnati senior golfer Alex Carl qualified for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship on Monday, July 16, at Indianapolis’ Broadmoor Country Club.

Carl fired a round of 75 to finish among the nine automatic qualifiers at the site, one of 14 qualifying sites around the nation.

The Country Club in Cleveland, Ohio, will host the 112th U.S. Amateur Championship, which begins on Aug. 6 with 156 of the best women golfers from around the world playing 36 holes of stroke play over two days. The low 64 players will then compete in match play from Aug. 8-12, with the champion determined by a 36-hole final match.

The U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship marked the beginning of women’s competitive golf in this country. Along with the U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Open, the U.S. Women’s Amateur was one of the USGA’s first three championships.  The winner of the 2012 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship will receive the historic Robert Cox Trophy and join the select group of golf’s greatest women players.

Carl is also scheduled to compete in the PureSilk Collegiate Women’s Team Championship on July 31-August 2 at the Wedgewood Golf & Country Club in Powell, Ohio.
