Whitney Neuhauser has played in some big golf tournaments. In addition to competing in numerous college events, the 2010 University of Virginia graduate reached the quarterfinals of the 2008 U.S. Women's Amateur, got to the third round of match play in the 2009 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links and won the 2009 VSGA Women's Amateur Championship.
"It's long but it's playable," Neuhauser said. "There's a lot of holes that you can make birdies on, as long as you can drive the ball in the fairway. I think the most important thing will be to have a confident short game going in. Players who tend to do well at the U.S. Open make a lot of putts, and they get up and down when they need to."
"In terms of results, I haven't played that well, but just talking to the girls out there it's definitely a learning process in your first year in professional golf," Neuhauser said. "So I've made rookie mistakes obviously, but I've learned from them. And I played well [at the Island Resort Championship] and feel really good going into the Open."
