Former FAU golfer Carafiello tees off in U. S. Women's Open on Thursday
FAU fans looking for a reason to watch this week's U. S. Women's Open golf tournament need look no further than Jessica Carafiello.

The former Owl has spent the past five years playing on the women's futures tour. She qualified for this week's event by shooting a two-over 146 at the par-72 Westmoreland Country Club in June's sectional qualifying event in Wilmette, Ill.

As an Owl Carafiello (photo, courtesy Phil Rudich - LehighValleyLive) was selected to the 2001 Atlantic Sun All Freshman team and was a second-team All Atlantic Sun choice in 2004. As a pro, her career earnings are just shy of $9,000. Prior to qualifing for the U. S. Open, Carafiello's biggest accomplishment was qualifiying for the women's Canadian Open.

The tournament is being held at the Saucon Valley Country Club's old course in Bethlehem, Penn.

ESPN will televise Thursday's and Friday's rounds from 2-6 p.m. NBC picks up the coverage on the weekend, airing the tournament from 3-6 p.m. Carafiello will tee off at 2:42 on Thursday, so there is a chance she could be shown.

FAUOwlAccess.com will keep you posted on how she does.
