Ranked 33rd in the Women’s Amateur Golf Ranking, the 20-year-old Houston Cougar defeated Northwestern’s Stephanie Lau, 3 and 2, at Southport to claim the Pam Barton Memorial Salver.

With the win, Harm qualifies for the 2018 Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship, the 2018 Evian Championship, the 2019 U.S. Women’s Open and the inaugural 2019 Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship.

The newly earned exemptions will necessitate a shakeup of her calendar.

“It’s a cool opportunity, I’m really excited,” Harm said. “I’ll see if I can arrange it with my coach because I have something else scheduled but obviously the Ricoh is the priority for me.”
