Orlando teen makes U.S. Women's Amateur semifinals

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Taiwan's Doris Chen beat Lauren Diaz-Yi 4 and 3 Friday in the U.S. Women's Amateur quarterfinals, avenging a blowout loss in the Public Links final.

In June in the Public Links, Diaz-Yi of Thousand Oaks, Calif., routed Chen 10 and 9.

"I did pretty well," Chen said "I just changed my practice approach a bit. I'm happy it worked out."

Chen, a member of Southern California's NCAA championship team, faces Yueer Cindy Feng of Orlando today at the Country Club of Charleston.

Play suspended in Palm Harbor: Katy Harris fired a first-round 4-under 68 to take the lead in the clubhouse at the suspended IOA Golf Classic in Palm Harbor.

"I feel like this has been a long time coming," Harris said. "I feel like it should have happened already because I've been hitting the ball good enough to score. I'm just glad it all came together."

Play was suspended at 3:43 because of inclement weather, then suspended for the day a couple of hours later. A total of 72 players will return to Innisbrook Golf Resort Island Course at 7:45 this morning to complete the first round.
