Defending Champion

A down to the wire finish crowned Kendall Griffin Champion of the 25th Women's Amateur Stroke Play Championship. Griffin chipped away at an eight stroke deficit with birdies on holes five, six, and nine. Three precise shots landed Griffin eight feet for birdie on the 18th hole. After making only 10 putts on her first nine holes, Griffin confidentially rolled in her birdie putt to take the outright lead.
