Kim Carrington wins 3rd Alberta Senior Ladies Championship in 5 years
Alberta Golf (Rocky Mountain House) – Kim Carrington must like odd numbered years, but it’s anything but odd that she’s this year’s Alberta Senior Ladies champion, it’s actually become quite common. Thursday at Pine Hills Golf Club in Rocky Mountain House the 2015 and 2017 champion added the 2019 title to her already amazing resume after shooting the low round of the tournament, a 1 over 74 for a 6 stroke victory over Jackie Little and Lynn Kuehn to take the title. The Cottonwood Golf & CC member also won the BC Senior Women’s championship in June and was emotional after her victory Thursday especially after letting the Calgary Senior Ladies Championship slip through her fingers last week after a mental lapse in the final round.
“I let it slip last week because I couldn’t control myself mentally and I thought I can’t let that happen today, this is my home turf in Alberta.” Said Carrington “Joanne was caddying for me and it was great, my dad Bill who used to be the pro at Pine Hills came down from Edmonton to watch with his wife. It’s very emotional, the family support was awesome.”
Alison Murdoch of the Victoria Golf Club won the Super Senior Championship by 4 strokes after posting a round of 3 over 76.
Kim Carrington, Lynn Kuehn and Barbara Flaman will make up Team Alberta that will compete at the Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur and Senior Championship at Osoyoos Golf Club Aug 18-20 2019.
Carrington donated her winner’s cheque to the junior program at Pine Hills Golf Club.
