2023 Mid-Amateur Championship
NESHOBE GOLF CLUB
Saturday & Sunday, September 23 & 24, 2023
Sunday dawned a bit overcast and although the action started at 8:00 a.m., it was a bit too quiet on the first tee at Neshobe Golf Club. But as the day began to warm, and the field started to spread out on the course, the sounds of cheering, whooping and hollering started to fill the air. And as the final groups started heading for the home stretch, the gallery was forming around the 18th green – and they were in for quite a show!
The final group of the day held a bit of a home-course advantage, with two of the ladies of Neshobe present. And they did not disappoint! Lin Culver, who shot 75 in Round 1, followed it up with a Round 2, 79 (154). Kristin Mahoney, who shot 77 in Round 1, held steady and put up a Round 2, 77 (154) to take it to a sudden death playoff. And the battle was on. It took 4 holes, 3 of which were played on #18 to finally break the tie with Kristin Mahoney shooting a birdie to win her first VSWGA Major Championship! Congratulations to Kristin for her perseverance and to Lin Culver for a great battle.
Third place, by only one stroke was Tiffany Maurycy of Killington Golf Course, shooting a 36-hole score of 155. Fourth went to Ann O’Day of Williston Golf Club with a 158 and Fifth place to Jeanne Morrissey of Williston with a 160. Full Field Results are available in attachment or on Golf Genius.
