Schubert will play 19-year-old Swiss Albane Valenzuela in the final at San Diego Country Club on Sunday.

The dream run of 13-year-old Chia Yen Wu ended when she lost her semi-final match at the U.S. Amateur Championship in California on Saturday. Now, she is a senior on the Texas Longhorns golf team.

Schubert took the lead with a par on No. 16 and with an approach to 3 feet on No. 18 won the match when Wu failed to hole a long pitch for a birdie.

"Today, (my) first nine, I think my muscles and my body felt exhausted, so my iron distance changed", said Wu, of Taiwan, whose quarter-final on Friday went an 12 extra holes, a record for a U.S. Golf Association event.

Wu had a 2-up lead after three holes before Stephenson evened the match with wins at No. 4 and No. 9.

Vu, who won the Pac-12 title in the spring as a sophomore at UCLA, was 1-up at the turn before making four straight bogeys. She closed it out with a 2-foot birdie putt on No. 16.
