New Zealand will have two golfers at the US women's Open in July.

Liv Cheng has claimed the second spot at sectional qualifying in Texas, showing nerves of steel to do so.

After 36 holes of strokeplay, she's then beaten two others after five playoff holes.

It's the first time the New Zealand number two has qualified for a major championship and gives her a chance to mount a strong case for Olympic selection alongside Lydia Ko.
