Charleston, SC (Sports Network) - Yueer Cindy Feng and Emma Talley won their matches on Saturday and advanced to Sunday's final at the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship.

Feng won the first with a par, and never relinquished that lead. She went on to beat Doris Chen, 3 & 2.

Talley was 4-up through five holes, but coughed up that lead. She parred the 17th to regain a 1-up lead and that was her winning margin over Alison Lee as the pair matched pars at the last.

Feng, 17, won the first two holes with pars, but she bogeyed the fourth to trim her lead to 1-up. Chen, 20, tripped to a bogey at the sixth to again dip to 2-down.

Chen birdied the ninth to again get within one, but Feng won the next two holes to push her lead to 3-up. The pair halved the next five holes to give Feng the match.

Talley, 19, and Lee matched pars at the first, then Talley won the next four holes (three with birdies). Talley stumbled to bogeys at seven and eight as her lead was cut to 2-up.

She pushed her lead back to 3-up with a birdie on the par-5 ninth. Lee, 18, won the 14th and 15th with pars before Talley made a mess of the 16th, and suddenly the pair was all square with two to go.

Lee, the 2012 U.S. Girls Junior runner-up, stumbled to a bogey at the 17th to drop 1-down. Matching pars at the last gave Talley the victory.
