Joan Rizio Wins Second Seniors’ Championship

Joan Rizio of Stratton Mountain Resort successfully defended her Ruth Raymond Jones Seniors' Championship with a two stroke victory over Liz Swim of Burlington Country Club. Joan entered Thursday's final round with a 4 stroke lead over Liz and a 5 or 6 stroke lead over several other contenders. She was able to extend that lead with a 2-over 38 on the front nine giving her some breathing room for the difficult back nine and allowing her to survive back-to-back 8's and still win by two strokes.

Joan finished with a two-day total of 164 and Liz with a 166 total. Mary Corey of Rocky Ridge moved up into third place with a total of 170. Ute Frankenstein of Lake Morey won the low net prize with a two-day net total of 136, one stroke better than Irma Heeter of Cedar Knoll. Diane Jones of Lake Morey won the Super Senior title while Pat Job of Rutland won the Legends title. The fewest putts prize went to Jet Beaulieu-Audette of Bakersfield.
