Delasin was born in Lubbock, Texas. She and grew up in San Francisco, California, where, as a student at Washington High, she won the boys' golf championship (the girls didn't have teams, so Delasin competed against the boys).[1] She had dual American and Filipino citizenship but gave it up sometime before 1999.[2] She had a strong amateur career, winning both the U.S. Girls' Junior, in 1996, and the U.S. Women's Amateur, in 1999.

The duo had a final round of 7-under-par 65 in the best ball, for a 54-hole aggregate of 18-under-par 198. Korea's Ji-Yai Shin and Eun Hee Ji were second on 200 after a final round 67, while Taiwan (Amy Hung and Yun Jye Wei) and Japan (Shinobu Moromizato and Miki Saiki) tied for third on 203.
