Canadians cruise to PNGA Senior Women's golf titles in Richland

From Tri-City Herald news servicesOctober 3, 2012 

RICHLAND, Wash. -- First-round leader Holly Horwood of Vancouver, B.C. shot a final round 4-over-par 76 on Tuesday to win the 27th Pacific Northwest Senior Women's Amateur Golf Championship at Meadow Springs Country Club.

Beverly McGladery of Vancouver, B.C. cruised to victory with a final round 10-over-par 82 in the second Pacific Northwest Super Senior Women's Amateur Championship.

Horwood shot 2-under 70 on Monday to enter the final round with a three-stroke lead over Terri Frohnmayer of Salem, Ore., -- the 2011 USGA Senior Women's Amateur champion -- but the Canadian saw her lead disappear after her second bogey of the day dropped her to even-par through four holes.

"I was very aware of Terri's record," Horwood said. "It took me a few holes to say, 'You can do it, Holly, just keep going, and make a few birdies.'"

She followed with birdies on holes seven and nine, pivotal holes for Horwood as she pushed the lead back to three strokes.

A quadruple bogey by Frohnmayer on No. 12 gave Horwood the breathing room she needed. Despite a double bogey of her own on the 15th hole, Horwood earned the six-shot win with a two-day total of 2-over-par 146.

"I'm absolutely thrilled," Horwood said. "The 70 was my best competitive round ever and to follow it up today with a 76 was very thrilling. I was nervous, so to keep it going on the second day was pleasing."

Frohnmayer finished alone in second place with a two-day total of 8-over-par 152, one shot clear of defending and two-time champion Alison Murdoch of Victoria, B.C. (2005, '11) and Ginny Burkey of Fircrest, Wash.

McGladery entered the final round with a nine-stroke lead, McGladery cruised through her round on Tuesday, making the turn at 6-over-par 42 before sealing the deal with a steady 4-over-par 40 on the back.

Her two-day total of 13-over-par 157 was good enough for an eight stroke victory over Susan McCoy of Seattle, who finished alone in second place with a two-day total of 21-over-par 165.

"I basically said I needed to stay on the fairway, so I decided not to use my driver today," McGladdery. "I played with my 4-wood and tried to hit the greens."

She also managed to handle the greens at Meadow Springs Country Club.

"I liked the fast greens," she said. "They were large greens but they were true and I just read them well."
