The event is put on by the California Women’s Amateur Championship (CWAC). Amy first played in the California State Junior Championship herself at the age of 13 and competed in them until she was 17. Also at 17, Amy participated in another CWAC event the California State Women’s Amateur (1974) held at Pebble Beach where she shot a course record 70 in the qualifying round for match-play. The 70 beat the previous record held by Babe Didrickson Zaharias. Amy turned pro 4 months later in February of 1975 and qualified to play on the LPGA tour.
