Watson, Boothe team up for win at IGA Mid-Am Series Event #2
On Saturday, Fiona Watson and Tish Boothe (right) claimed the 2021 Women’s Mid-Am Series Event #2. The tournament was a modified alternate shot format and took place at Edmundson Golf Course in Oskaloosa. Watson and Boothe won the tournament by five shots by carding a 3-over round of 73.
Kelly Nelson and Michelle Klein finished runner-up after shooting a round of 78. Birdies were scarce for many, so it was important to limit the errors. Nelson and Klein battled all day and stayed one shot clear of a three-way tie for third place.
The three-way tie for third place featured Rosalie Kubesheski and Margene Grady who recorded a solid round of 79. Ila Gilbert and Janis Owens started six-over through the first ten holes but managed to go 3-over in their last eight to post a 79 on the day. Julie Buerman and Katie Wenthe also finished in the tie for third place after carding a round of 79.
In the Net Division, Shirly Rochelle and Jackie Warrick put together a round of 70 that featured six (net) birdies. Rochelle and Warrick defeated Ila Gilbert and Janis Owens by one shot. Gilbert and Owens fired a round of 71 with four birdies to earn a second-place finish. Sarah and Nancy Olberding carded a round of 72 and finished in third place.
The next 2021 Women’s Mid-Am Series (Four-Ball format) event will be August 28, at A.H. Blank Golf Course in Des Moines. Registration for this event will close on August 18, at 11:59 p.m.
