Fort Myers Local Takes Fiddlesticks
Lynda Case captured the 2012 Women's Senior Amateur Championship as Meredith Wolf captured the Super Senior Division at Fiddlesticks Country Club in Fort Myers, June 6-7.
Lynda Case, a Fort Myers local, was the model of consistency throughout the week shooting under par on the challenging front nine both days. After the first round, she trailed Mary Jane Hiestand, from Naples, by two strokes and was followed closely by Therese Quinn, from Jacksonville. In the final round, it was Case’s consistent play that brought her back from behind and scored her a tournament total of 146, putting her three strokes ahead of Quinn and six strokes in front of Hiestand. Meredith Wolf, from Wellington, prevailed in a play-off to win the Super Senior division with a tournament total of 177. After leading the first round with 84, Wolf was joined by Melinda Morgan, of Debary, who came from behind with 85 to share the first place spot in the final round. It took only one playoff hole for Wolf to regain the title and win the division. Full Story
