Richmond-area youngster wins VSGA Women’s Amateur
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The 95th Women’s State Amateur final teed off Thursday afternoon at the Roanoke Country Club, where it was Midlothian’s Tatum Walsh taking on medalist winner Julie Shinn. Shinn posted a 2 and 1 win in the semis Thursday morning, while Walsh needed 19 holes to advance.
Walsh made the turn at 2-up, went 3-up after 11 holes and then knocked in a short birdie effort at the par 3 12th to really put the pressure on, up by 4.
Shinn just couldn’t get much of anything going on the greens.
Walsh salvaged a par at 15 to end things with a 5 and 3 victory. The 17-year-old was plenty familiar with the country club layout after playing in the Scott Robertson junior event. That certainly helped her on the way to the trophy.
