It wasn’t the way she wanted to win it, Point Clear’s Virginia Green was declared the champion of the 51st Girls State Junior Championship at TP Country Club in Cullman after Thursday’s final round was cancelled due to heavy rain.
Therefore, Alabama Golf Association officials made the decision to declare the championship a 36-hole event.
Last Friday Green had lost in the final of the Women’s State Amateur at NorthRiver Yacht Club to Elaine Wood; but she is now a state champion as she held a one-shot lead over Micheala Williams of Athens, which proved to be the final margin of victory.
Green, 15, shot rounds of 74-73–147, with Williams, 16, on 148 (71-77).
Defending champion Mountain Brook’s Tatum Jackson finished alone in third after rounds of 75-77–152.
