Kubesheski wins 6th Iowa Senior Women’s Amateur title, third in a row

When the dust had settled in Clarinda, a familiar face was still sheriff of the territory.

For the third year in a row and sixth time overall, Rose Kubesheski took home the trophy from the 52 Iowa Senior Women’s Amateur. Kubesheski fired a final round 73 (+4) to outdistance opening round leader Kathy Fortune by six strokes. Kubesheski made a total of three birdies to help her pull clear of the competition. Hitting it close with her short irons was the key for the champion.

“I hit some really good wedge shots today,” Kubesheski commented.

Another fine round was turned in by Janece Schwartzkopf (73) to capture low Super Senior (60 and older) honors, as well as finishing in 3rd place overall.
