Llanelli, U.K. --- Georgia incoming freshman Harang Lee's impressive run in the 2013 Ladies British Open Amateur Championship came to an end on Friday when she lost in the quarterfinals at Machynys Peninsula Golf and Country Club.
On Friday morning, Lee, a native of Castro Uridales, Spain, needed just 12 holes to secure a decisive 7&6 victory over Csilla Lajtai Rózsa of Hungary to advance to the final eight.
Dorest, U.K. native, Georgia Hall then defeated Lee, 4&3, in the quarterfinals. Hall gained a 1-up advantage after winning the match's second hole. The score remained at 1-up for nine holes before Hall won No. 12, No. 13 and No. 14 and then halved No. 15 to register an insurmountable four-hole lead with three holes remaining.
Lee was the highest seeded competitor remaining in the field. She entered the 64-player match play bracket after tying for ninth in 36 holes of stroke play qualifying on Tuesday and Wednesday. Lee topped Emma Milsson of Sweden and Ileen Domela Nieuwenhuis of the Netherlands on Thursday and bested Lajtai Rózsa on Friday morning before facing Hall.
