Yana Wilson and Riana Mission are two of the top young players in Southern Nevada and now they have even more proof of that as they teamed up to qualify for the 2021 USGA Women’s Fourball to be played at Maridoe Golf Club in Carrollton, Texas. The 2020 event was canceled due to Covid-19. Mission and Wilson shot 65 in the qualifier at Las Vegas National Golf Club.
In true 2020 fashion, the result wasn’t official until it was posted on Instagram.
From Wilson @yana54lv:
“We qualified for the 6th US Women’s Amateur Four ball! Having an awesome partner @ri.axm 💗, great weather 🌤 and dropped putts (especially on the back nine 😂) added up to an awesome Monday. 💚 Big thanks to @sngagolf for a well run event 🙏🏻🙏🏻@usga #uswomensfourball #everydaybetter #girlsgolf #hulagirlsgolftoo🌺”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Later, via text, Wilson, who is homeschooled but plays for Coronado High, added the following:
Mission is a Clark High School senior and has committed to play at University of San Francisco and also won the Nevada State Junior 15-18 girls division earlier this year. Wilson is 14 and one of the country’s top players and a former champion of the Drive, Chip and Putt competition at The Masters.
