Julie Harrison was basically fairways and greens on the front nine, shooting a one over 37; meanwhile Sophia Macias started off with a pair of double bogeys. Settling her nerves, Macias finished just three strokes behind with a birdie on the difficult 9th hole. Undaunted by Macias’s birdie, Harrison knocked in a 6 foot downhill breaking putt on the same 9th green.
Macias launched a huge drive on the 10th hole and made another birdie to draw within two strokes. Harrison managed to keep Macias at bay until the 16th hole where she buried against the lip of a bunker and made a double bogey. But Macias gave back a stroke with a three putt on the 17th green. Tied coming into 18, both missed the green short and yet either failed to get it up and down for a par.
Tied after regulation, they proceeded to the 10th hole for a sudden death play-off. Harrison drove down the right side of the fairway leaving herself a difficult approach, while Macias launch a booming drive that nearly reached the green. Harrison took her medicine and left her approach just short of the green while Macias chipped to gimme range to make a birdie and thus the title.
