Holly Reynolds of Copley Country Club had an uncharacteristically bad day on the golf course Wednesday, Aug. 9, shooting a 13-over par 84, yet was still able to capture her ninth Vermont women’s amateur title by a slim margin.
Reynolds went into the last day of competition at the Country Club of Barre with an eight-stroke lead. Her three-day total of 236 was just two strokes better than runner-up Jeanne Morrissey of Williston Golf Club, who fired a 76, her best round of the tournament. It was almost enough to catch the 36-hole leader.
Andrea Brown of Alburg Golf Links finished in third place with 239, and Tiffany Maurycy of Killington GC was fourth at 241. Nancy Devaux of West Bolton GC finished in fifth with 244.
Three players finished with a total score of 250, and a match of cards put Julia Dapron of Dorset Field Club in sixth place, Kristin Mahoney of Rutland CC in seventh, and Katie Goulet of Newport CC in eighth.
Dapron won the junior championship, beating defending champion Goulet with a birdie on the third sudden death playoff hole.
Lucille Rogoff of Green Mountain National GC was the low net winner.
