BARRINGTON, R.I. - Senior Jessica Wallace advanced to match play at the 2011 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship Tuesday, played here at the Rhode Island Country Club.

Inclement weather forced a delay in the first round on Monday, and Wallace finished tied for 45th place through two rounds in the 156-player field and is seeded No. 51 with a total of 64 golfers advancing to match play on the 6,399-yard, par-71 course.  She was one of 10 golfers tied at 45th at 4-over par 146, three strokes from the cut.

Wallace finished out her first round on a strong note with two birdies in the final five holes to finish at 1-over par 72.  She pared her first five holes and then had back-to-back double bogeys to stand at 4-over par through seven holes.  She birdied the 392-yard par 4 18th hole, her ninth of the day, and then played the front nine at 2-under par. In the second round, she played steady with 15 pars and three bogeys to finish at 3-over par 74. 

She will square off against No. 14 seed Victoria Tanco from Bradenton, Fla., in the round of 64 Wednesday at 1:40 p.m. ET.   The winner of that match will face the winner of No. 19 seed Chihire Ikeda and No. 49 seed Sarah Ababa, both from the Philippines, in the round of 32 at 9:40 a.m. ET Thursday.

Should she keep advancing, Wallace would play two rounds on Thursday while the quarterfinal will take place Friday, the semifinal Saturday and the championship match on Sunday, a 32-hole final.
