1, 2, 3! Women’s South Carolina Golf Association Amateur Championship – DAY TWO RESULTS
Day two of the Women’s South Carolina Golf Association Amateur Championship and State Division Championships at Dataw Island’s Cotton Dike course has drawn to a soggy close, with another day of excellent competition despite on-again, off-again showers throughout the day. With a total of nearly 8 inches of rain being reported over the course of less than a week, pond levels are high and the greens are rolling slow.
Clarissa Childs, WSCGA Director, was thankful to not have lightning delays today despite the many systems the skirted around Dataw Island. “We’ve been joking that Dave Britton, Dataw’s Director of Golf, is Moses today! We can’t believe how lucky we’ve been that the thunderstorms have all seemed to pass right by us. It’s like he has parted the skies for us to play through.”
Surprisingly, the players even enjoyed some spurts of sun between the showers, and they did not seem to allow the rain to dampen their spirits as the continued the fight to the top spots in South Carolina.
In the Amateur Championship field, it’s 1, 2, 3 over par in first, second, and third places. Jodee Tindal (Rock Hill Country Club) continues to lead the Amateur Championship field shooting 73 today for a two-day total of one-over par, just one stroke ahead of second place. Dawn Woodard (Thornblade Club) shot a 72 to close the gap to just one stroke, with a two-day total of two-over par. And in third, at three-over-par, is Sophia Burnett (Colleton River Club) who also shot a 72.
Pam Prescott (Pickens Country Club) held onto the lead today in the State Division Championship, shooting a 73 for a two-day total of eight-over par. Renee Rezzetano (Hampton Hall) also maintained her slot in second-place, with 14-over. Leigh Coulter (Ft. Jackson Country Club) slid to 5th, with Natalie Huff (Woodlands) and Suzy Ellison (Woodlands Country Club) moving up to hold a third place tie.
