ST. LOUIS, Mo. — University of Arkansas junior Kelli Shean was eliminated on the final hole of her first round match at the U.S. Women’s Amateur in St. Louis, Mo., Wednesday.

Shean lost the 18th hole to Caroline Masson of Germany, 1 up.

Shean opened her day at 1:20 p.m. on the par 71, 6,422-yard course at Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis, Mo. The duo squared the first five holes shooting par on each.

Shean took her first lead of the day on the par five sixth hole with a birdie. She held the lead through the eighth hole but Masson squared the contest on the ninth with a birdie on the par four.

Masson gave it right back, however, with a bogey on the 10th hole and Shean had her second lead of the afternoon.

The 12th hole would square the match again as Masson counted a two on the par five, 525-yard hole. Masson went on to take her first lead of the contest on the 13th but Shean rallied with a par while her opponent bogeyed the 14th.

The match would remain square until Masson won the final hole.

Maason faces Michelle Shin of Cape Coral, Fla., who was a 3 & 2 winner over Stephanie Meadow of Northern Ireland. The match is scheduled for a 9:20 a.m. start.
