Andrea Brown Wins Mid-Amateur Championship

Take Libby Smith out of the mix, and the results for the Mid-Amateur Championship were the same as for the State Amateur Championship.  Andrea Brown of Williston is the champion (runner-up in the State Am), Margie Bowes of Mt. Anthony was the runner-up (3rd in the State Am), and Ann O'Day of the Country Club of Vermont was third (4th in the State Am).  Andrea burned up the course in the opening round on Saturday shooting a terrific 2 under par round of 70 setting a Mid-Am scoring record and building herself a comfortable lead of six strokes over Margie.


Sunday's round presented the players with a different golf course.   After a 90 minute rain delay, play was able to begin in damp, foggy, and humid conditions.  Most of the leaders after Saturday's round had trouble adjusting to the wet conditions and slower greens resulting in much higher scoring.


Lynda Jo Gregory of Bellows Falls was the overall net winner by three strokes over Cheryl Hoar of Burlington and five strokes over Diane Jones of Lake Morey who was the net winner in the State Am.
