Stephanie Meadow will get to make her professional debut this week's US Women's Open after all.
The University of Alabama star feared she would have to tee it up as an amateur after running into red tape. But she resolved most of those issues early on Sunday and will now play for pay at Pinehurst No 2.
"It was an issue with via and insurance problems but while the visa is still being processed, but I am officially a professional," she said.
As for the intimidating challenge of Pinehurst No 2, she's looking forward to it.
"Hard golf courses are great because they require accuracy and that is one of my strengths," she said before driving to the venue last night. "I'm excited to get up there and get a game plan together."
