Roberta Scott outlasts Monica Hull in 19-hole final match to claim her second Utah Senior Women’s Amateur Championship

“This one is for my dad.”

Roberta Scott had a tear in her eye as she became emotional while accepting the trophy for winning the Utah Senior Women’s Amateur Championship at The Barn Golf Club. After going back and forth all day, Scott recorded a par on the first extra hole of the championship match against Monica Hull, securing her second championship win (her first came in 2007).

“My dad was incredibly influential in my life and one of my main mentors when it comes to golf,” said Scott, “He passed away earlier this year, so this is an emotional win for me.”

Scott’s win in the first extra hole was not without drama. Down one at the turn, Scott proceeded to win three of the five next holes to go two up with four holes to go. Hull then responded by reaching the green in two strokes on the par-five 15th hole and then two-putting for birdie to win the hole. Hull then tied the match by getting up and down for par on the 16th hole.

Scott and Hull split the next two holes to send the match to extra holes. On the match-deciding hole, which was a par-five, Hull found herself on the green in three strokes with a 25-foot downhill putt. Meanwhile, Scott hit her second shot underneath a pine tree about 40 yards from the green and faced a difficult lie with branches preventing her from making a full swing. After attempting to maneuver through the tree to see if she could get a club on the ball, Scott retreated to her cart and proceeded to throw her hat in frustration. After that, she proceeded to hit a beautiful punch shot which left her just off the green and only a few yards short of the hole.

“Throwing my hat was in response to a little bit of everything. Frustration, exhaustion, not to mention the tree branches trying to take my hat off anyway,” said Scott, “I loved the format of the competition but I’m certainly exhausted. I don’t think I’ve played 36 holes in one day in over 30 years.”

Following the punch shot, Hull left her birdie putt about 10 feet short and then Scott was able to get to about four feet from the hole. Hull then missed her par putt to the right of the hole and Scott was able to hole out to secure the win. When asked about the match, Hull was understandably disappointed but grateful for the experience.

“I only started playing golf about seven years ago. I’ve been fortunate to be able to play with awesome golfers like Annette (Gaiotti), Roberta and all my gals at Jeremy Ranch. They’ve all made me better as we battle and compete every time we play. It helps you in these moments…I love it,” said Hull.
