“The best part of my game this week was throwing shots in kind of close,” Shoemaker said. “I’ve been working on that an lot the last couple months. So to see it bleed into my game here was pretty great. I also made an lot of putts to put some pressure on my opponents.”
On the par-3 fifth hole, Filler just missed her par putt to give Shoemaker a 3-up lead heading to the seventh. Filler’s drive was just short of the green, she chipped it to 2 feet and made the putt for birdie to win the hole.
Filler and Shoemaker halved the seventh and eighth, heading to the ninth with Shoemaker 2 up. Filler birdied the par-5 ninth hole to cut Shoemaker’s lead to 1 up as they made the turn to the back side.

On the par-4 14th hole, Shoemaker’s second shot was short-left of the green. The Florida Junior Tour winner chipped it to 2 feet and made the putt to extend the lead to 2 up
