2022 VSWGA Amateur Championship
Neshobe Golf Club
August 1, 2, & 3, 2022

Tuesday, August 2 was moving day at the VSWGA Amateur Championship! The leaderboard looked a bit different at the end of Round 2, but there were a couple of folks that held steady and finished strong. Carson Richards of Burlington Country Club held on to her lead over the field by 1 stroke. She carded a six-over 79. In second place, clawing her way up the leaderboard with three birdies and one eagle, and shooting a one-over 74, was Mia Politano of Ralph Myhre Golf Course. Holding strong in third was Becky Montgelas of Ekwanok Country Club, shooting a five-over 78. Other notable rounds included: Julia Dapron of Dorset Field Club, who tied Mia Politano for the low round of the day, a one-over 74; Andrea Brown, who, using her momentum coming off her Senior Championship victory, shot a two-over 75; Tiffany Maurycy of Killington Golf Course, with a three-over 76 to move up in the standings; and a three way tie in 7th place between Holly Reynolds of Copley Country Club, Reggie Parker of Ekwanok Country Club and Lindsay Cone of Rutland Country Club. 

The Junior Champion division is a shot-for-shot-battle between the current leader, Teegan Duffy of Rutland Country Club who shot a second round 84 to take a one stroke lead over Kaylie Porter of Manchester Country Club, who shot a second round 86. In third place is Alyssa Gallo of Manchester Country Club with a second round 88 and fourth place is Namo Seibert of West Bolton Golf Club with a second round 91. These young ladies are playing some amazing golf! 

In the Paquet Team Cup Competition, Williston continues to lead the field, but the margin is only 8 strokes over Rutland Country Club. In third, and 12 strokes off the lead, is Dorset Field Club. It’s anybody’s guess which team will come out on top!

Wednesday’s weather looks great and the women golfers of Vermont are bringing the heat. It’s going to be a great day of golf!
