Cole was forced to drain a par putt on her final hole to win the 52nd edition of the tournament and avoid a playoff. 

“I wasn’t playing great,” said Cole following her victory. “I kept saying, ‘Just play your game. Just have fun out here. If you win, you win. If you don’t, whatever.’”

Cole opened up to a rocky start, shooting a nine-over 45 on the front nine. On the back nine, Cole picked up momentum, recording pars on the final four holes.

“I was shocked because I thought there was no way I would be able to catch the two leaders. I had two really good finishing holes, so that helped,” Cole said.

Karen Hansard, of Heron Glen Golf Course led for most of Wednesday’s round, leading by two strokes heading into the 14th hole, but blemishes on her final five holes dropped her out of the lead.

Cole also won the Super-Senior Championship in 2015 and 2016. She is the only competitor to win both the Women’s Senior Amateur Championship and the Women’s Super-Senior Championship.

 

 

“Just keep coming out! No matter how old you are, just keep coming out. Don’t let them tell you you’re too old to do this.

In the net competition, Anna Turner won by a match of cards with a final round one-under 71.
