Hailee Cooper and Kaitlyn Papp hung on to win the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball crown, beating Angelina Kim and Brianna Navarrosa in 19 holes in Wednesday’s championship match.

The Texas duo of Cooper and Papp jumped out to a 2-up lead after just two holes at Streamsong Resort. They were 2 up again after 10 holes before Kim and Navarrosa won two of the next four holes to make it all square.

The teams continued that way through 18, then went back to the first tee, where Cooper and Papp won the hole for the second time in the match and take the championship.

Cooper and Papp were the tournament’s No. 7 seed. Kim and Navarrosa were No. 12 and had beaten the No. 1-seeded team of Pauline Del Rosario and Princess Mary Superal in the semifinals.
