Keeping the trophy home two years in a row was local golfer Karen Kloske, who reigned triumphant during the 31st Annual March Meadows Ladies Amateur Open, Thursday, August 4.

“I haven’t been golfing very well this summer, so this was great,” she said.

She’s managed to make the playoffs at two tournaments thus far this year, losing both, she said.

Her losing streak ended last week, during which time she scored 79, with her nearest competitor trailing three shots behind.

During her round of golf, Kloske managed a birdie on hole six. The worst score she had during her round consisted of bogeys.

“I didn’t get into too much trouble, and when I did it wasn’t too bad,” she said.

Another key to her win was excellent putting, with Kloske sinking all reasonable putts.

During the closing ceremonies, tournament organizer Del Gamble thanked the ladies for their 31 years of support.

“Your support over the years is greatly appreciated, and we hope you all had a great round of golf,” she told the ladies.

“The course is in the best shape we’ve ever seen it.”
