Robyn is the oldest competitor, at age 61 (it is already on the USGA website!)

The youngest competitor is Gabriella Then, 12, who is from Rancho Cucamonga.

Of the 156 competitors at the US Women’s Amateur Championship, 27 are from Southern California, which is slightly less than the 31 Southern Californians at the US Girls’ Junior Championship held last week.
