Yana Wilson and Riana Mission are two of the top Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association members and they teamed up to qualify for the 2021 USGA Women’s Fourball to be played at the 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.
“I just loved playing with Riana during the qualifier,” wrote Wilson via text. “We had each other when one of us was in trouble. And we were both focused and determined. She’s the best four-ball partner I’ve played with.”
Wilson also shared the news via 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.
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. Wilson is homeschooled but plays at Coronado High.
