Kelsey Chugg Repeats as Mary Lou Baker Open Champion
Kelsey Chugg came from behind to overtake Sadie Palmer and repeat as champion of the Mary Lou Baker Open Friday at Davis Park golf course. Palmer had a one shot lead going into the final round and the two played flawlessly on the front nine, each posting three under par 33s. Palmer continued her bogey free play until the 16th hole when she went double bogey, bogey to finish even par. Palmer’s double bogey on 15, due to an awkward lie in a bunker, allowed Chugg to leap-frog into the lead. It was the two-shot difference.
“It was a lot of fun, but I felt bad for Sadie’s awkward lie in the bunker. We neither one wanted it to end that way. She played great,” Chugg said.
Chugg, who is the Director of Membership Services for the UGA, is a two-time Women’s Utah State Amateur champion and now she is the two-time Mary Lou Baker champion.
Brooklyn Hocker shot the best round of the day, a 67, and pulled her into a tie for second place with Palmer, two shots behind Chugg.
Former two-time Mary Lou Baker champions, Sirene Blair and Lea Garner, finished in a dead heat in seventh place at two over par 144.
Cassandra Lesa won Second Flight with a score of 71-74-145, and Bayleigh Woodland won Third Flight with an score of 80-81-161.
