Reeves, 21, from Broken Arrow, Okla., qualified for the match play rounds by shooting a 3-over-par 71 in each of the two rounds to gain the 62 seed. She will face the No. 3 seed Moriya Jutanugarn from Thailand who finished the stroke play rounds 5-under-par 142.

The two golfers were slated to tee off at noon today. Coverage of the event will be televised on the Golf Channel beginning at 2 p.m.
