Three-time champion Meghan Stasi and Liz Waynick each won two matches Wednesday at Briggs Ranch to advance to the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur final.

OUT FOR NO. 1

It's been an up and down season for Tiger. Where does he sit in GolfWeek's rankings?

The 34-year-old Stasi, from Oakland Park, Fla., beat Andrea Kraus of Baltimore 2 and 1 in the morning quarterfinals, and routed Laura Coble of Augusta, Ga., 6 and 5 in the semifinals.

Stasi, the 2006, 2007 and 2010 winner in the event limited to players 25 and older, won six straight holes to finish off Coble. Stasi birdied the last three holes.

TROPHY WAGs

For some golfers, the biggest prizes aren't their tournament wins but their wives and girlfriends.

''I'm going to need that rest for tomorrow,'' Stasi said about the short match.

The 52-year-old Waynick, from Scottsdale, Ariz., beat 2004 champion Corey Weworski of Carlsbad, Calif., 2 and 1 in the quarterfinals, and edged Stacy Dennis of Huntsville, Texas, in 20 holes in the semifinals.

''I'm speechless,'' Waynick said. ''I'm just ecstatic right now, I couldn't be more grateful. This is the highlight of my life.''

Stasi is attempting to join Ellen Port as the only four-time champion.

''I'm just going to take it shot by shot,'' Stasi said. ''You have to. The second you get ahead of yourself, bad things start to happen.''
