Doey Choi and Stephanie Kyriacou show the final scores after qualifying for this year's American Ladies Amateur.

Stephanie Kyriacou and Doey Choi have qualified for the American Women & # 39; s Amateur Championship next month with impressive rounds this morning.

Choi made it up last year that he missed out on qualifying and shot an equal par 72 at the Saticoy Club in California.

Kyriacou, meanwhile, picked up a four-under-par 67 at the Westhaven Club in Franklin Tennessee to qualify for the legendary championship on her first attempt.

It was the first competitive wave for the pair since they were part of the NSW women's team that successfully defended their Australian Interstate crown last month.

Kyriacou was in control all day and said she felt that the qualification had never been questioned. She said that a change in her normal practice routine was the key to her impressive performance.

"I played very well and played well on Interstate," Kyriacou said. "But I practice more on the course than usual since then."

"I had a lot of confidence in my game, so I wasn't stressed out."

In contrast, Choi said that her qualification was a rut

"I had a chat with Johnny (coach) before I came over, and we talked about staying patient, and that's what I did today," Choi said.

"This course was brutal. I knew it would be hard and the scores wouldn't be low, I just tried to hit every fairway and every green."

The Golf NSW High Performance pair now has a few weeks to prepare for the Ladies Amateur, starting this week's National Camp in Houston, Texas.

After the camp it is the North and South Women Amateur in South Carolina, the Canadian Amateur, and then the American Ladies Amateur, who will be played at the Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi, from August 6.

"I've never been to Mississippi," said Kyriacou, "I'm so excited!"
