HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

Iolani graduate Marissa Chow will be making her professional debut this weekend. 

Competing as an amateur, the Pepperdine junior will be stepping up to the tee at the 2014 Women's U.S. Open. 

"I think that my goal for the tournament is to enjoy it for all that it has to offer. I would like to gain a new perspective of the game, because I want to see the different ways that these accomplished women play golf. I think it is going to be such a treat to play with these players and I am so thankful that I get to experience this prestigious event," said Chow. 

The Honolulu native earned her spot in the tournament after winning a sectional qualifier in California back in May. 

Chow has earned All-West Coast Conference Honors in each of her past two seasons as a Wave.

She capped this past season ranked 29th nationally by Golfstat. 

Coverage of the tournament will kick-off tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. on ESPN2.
