JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Megan Furtney and Erica Shepherd atoned for a semifinal loss a year ago by winning the U.S. Women's Amateur Four-Ball on Wednesday with a strong start and a steady finish at Timuquana Country Club.

Furtney and Shepherd, high school seniors who plan to play for Duke next year, made their fourth birdie on the par-5 seventh hole to build a 3-up lead, and lost only one hole the rest of the way for a 2-and-1 victory over Jillian Bourdage and Casey Weidenfeld.

Bourdage and Weidenfeld are high school teammates in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Shepherd won the 2017 U.S. Girls Junior and tied for 23rd in the Augusta National Women's Amateur. Furtney recovered from losing the tip of her pinky finger in a freak accident in 2017.
