Enid High School golfer Jessica Fleming has earned a trip to the U.S. Junior Amateur in Boise, Idaho, which begins July 18.

The U.S. Junior Amateur features top golfers from all over the United States and some from other countries.

Fleming qualified for the elite, 154-participant field with a top-four finish at a USGA sponsored sectional qualifier at Persimmon Woods Golf Club in Weldon Spring, Mo., Wednesday.

Fleming shot a 77, which put her in a four-way tie for third place and sent her into a sudden death playoff.

She secured her spot on the first hole, leaving the other three golfers to compete for the fourth spot on the second sudden-death hole.

The sectional qualifier displayed 24 golfers from Missouri, Oklahoma, Ohio, Illinois and Tennessee.

The winning score was a 72, and the second-place golfer scored a 76.

Fleming will be a senior at EHS this fall.
