Three advance from U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur hosted by DMGCC
The course didn’t let up.
That was the story at the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur qualifier contested at Des Moines Golf & Country Club.
With winds swirling and pars coming at a premium, three players advanced to the national championship – Leeann Fairlie (78), Claudia Pilot (79) and Rose Kubesheski (80).
Oklahoma City’s Fairlie, who stayed away from the double bogey or worse all day earned medalist, while Rio Verde’s Pilot admitted she played 17 ‘good’ holes of golf, with only one disaster coming on the 14th hole.
Dubuque’s Kubesheski looked to be sailing smooth through 12 holes before the bogey train arrived, but a birdie on the 17th hole helped ease the pain of her finish, with a double bogey on 18, and left her one shot clear of fourth place and good enough for the last qualifying spot.
Elizabeth Wanek earned 1st Alternate position in a playoff, while Robin Webb earned 2nd Alternate.
