CROSSVILLE, TENN (July 29th, 2017) The final round of the Golf Capital of Tennessee Women’s Open had more ups and downs than the back nine of Stonehenge Golf Club. Second round leader Samantha Troyanovich birdied the second hole to give herself a two-shot lead. That lead turned into a deficit after Sarah Hoffman birdied Nos. 3-4 while Troyanovich bogeyed both holes. Troyanovich recovered nicely and appeared to be in control of the tournament as the leaders got started on the final nine holes. Troyanovich was five-under-par for the championship heading to the 12th hole, a hole the Tulane graduate birded in the first and second round. Troyanovich’s approach hit the back of the green and bounced into the high grass behind the green. The ball was never found leading to a triple bogey that turned a four-shot lead into a one-shot lead.


Hoffman proceeded to birdie the picturesque par-3 14th to climb all the way back to a share of first place. “Golf is such a up-and-down sport, you can never count yourself out, I had good vibes going into No. 14,” Hoffman said. However, Troyanovich regained sole possession of first place after Hoffman made bogey on No. 15. Both players made pars on Nos 16-17 setting up an exciting finish for the hundreds of fans waiting on No. 18. While the leaders were trading blows back and forth, Elsa Moberly who was in the group ahead posted a two-under-par 70 to take the lead in the clubhouse.

Hoffman’s heady move on No. 18 kept her in the championship. The Grand Valley State University product hit 3-wood and was dangerously close to the water hazard. “I had used my two club-lengths on the tee like you are allowed to,” Hoffman said. Hoffman made par while Troyanovich bogeyed the finishing hole, setting the stage for a three-woman playoff.


“I love the competition. Everyone out here is competitive but I am the youngest of four so I am super competitive. I had confidence going in,” Hoffman said about entering the playoff. While Troyanovich and Hoffman made par on the first playoff hole, Moberly was eliminated with a bogey. Despite losing the playoff, the Eastern Kentucky University junior won the low amateur award. The other two went back to No. 18 for the third time. Hoffman made her third consecutive par while Troyanovich missed her par putt, giving Hoffman her first win as a professional. “This win provides validation, to be able to close out a tournament like this,” Hoffman, who has used her Registered Nurse degree while embarking on a professional career, said. “On a personal level this validates my choice, and I know I can make the putts when I need to,” Hoffman said.
