    MSU’s Valentina Rossi goes extra holes (again!) to make Final Four at U.S. Women’s Amateur

    Chalk up another Final Four for Michigan State.

    Valentina Rossi, a rising sophomore for the Spartans, went extra holes to win her quarterfinal match in the U.S. Women’s Amateur on Friday at Westchester in upstate New York.

    Rossi, in beating Stanford’s Brooke Seay with a birdie on the 19th hole (the short par-4 10th), advances to Saturday’s semifinal match, where she’ll meet Vivian Hou, an Arizona student from Chinese Taipei. The match is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. The championship match is set for Sunday.

    Rossi used clutch putt after clutch putt to eventually beat Seay. She went 20 holes to win her Sweet 16 match, and 19 holes to win her opening match.

    “Yeah, my putting’s the best of my game, so I’m really happy,” Rossi said shortly after closing out Seay. “I always know if my putting’s good, I always have a good round.

    “It feels so good.”

    Rossi, 20, playing in her first U.S. Women’s Amateur, took a quick two-hole lead in Friday’s match, but Seay fought back to square the match through nine holes. Ross birdied No. 10 to go one-up.
