Sabrine Garrison wins the 2017 Alberta Ladies’ Am
From fourth to first after round two, Sabrine Garrison shoots a low 70 final round to win this year’s 2017 Sun Life Financial Alberta Ladies’ Amateur Championship at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club.
“To be honest coming off the last green today, I really actually didn’t think I had it. I knew I put together a good round, but there is a little bit of nerves coming into the last three holes. I mean it was tough conditions today, and I think that’s really what differentiated me from everybody else. I put a good round together on a tough day,” says the Country Hills Golf Club 219 (+3) three-day total champion.
Andrea Kosa takes home both the Mid Amateur and Mid Master titles, placing second overall in the tournament (+5). She had a strong consistent week on the course, well above her nearest divisional competitors.
“I was very patient and calm, I know the big picture world out there, and I know it’s not all golf all the time, so I was just able to stay in my moment, enjoy it and save myself most of the time. I’m glad Alberta Golf has these categories. I think it should inspire other people to come out, and then having that opportunity to get the bigger prize there at the end, and win all three, could have been spectacular, but it’s still awesome. I’m very proud of what I did today,” Kosa says.
With Garrison unable to attend the 2017 Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship in Guelph, Ont. from July 25th to 28th, Lauren Diederichs, Kenna Hughes and Kat Kennedy form this year’s Alberta Interprovincial Women’s Team.
