Amateurs Seek First Win Since Stratton in 2012

Amateurs Seek First Win Since Stratton in 2012

CROSSVILLE, TENN (July 26rd, 2017) The Golf Capital of Tennessee Women’s Open brings together a unique blend of professionals and amateurs from across the state, country, and world. A $25,000 purse attracts professionals from as far as Australia to compete. Seven amateurs have managed to win the Women’s Open in the 18 year history of the event. However, a professional has won the last four years. The last amateur to win was Lauren Stratton in 2012.

 

Stratton, who had a remarkable amateur career, looks back fondly on her win at the Women’s Open, “That win was one of the best wins of my career. I was the 3rd player to win the state amateur and the state open in the same calendar year. It was pretty special. I will never forget it. With all of the fans that set up to watch on the 18th created like a mini grandstand was pretty incredible. They were all very supportive,” the Vanderbilt standout said. Stratton beat some big names that week, including a future LPGA major champion,” It was also very cool that I was able to beat Mo Martin who is a member of the LPGA and she won the British Open in 2014,” Stratton said.

 

Looking back on her win, a few things stuck out to Stratton about Stonehenge Golf Club, “The golf course is always pretty soft, and it takes some good planning. There are some unique holes like the par-3 14th, which requires a good shot every time. Also, community support is incredible. There are fans out on the course every day to cheer everyone on. The TGA staff has always done a great job making everyone feel welcome, and I love all the players young and old that come back,” Stratton said.    

 

Perhaps the amateur with the best chance of replicating Stratton’s feat of winning as an amateur comes from the same Vanderbilt program. Alexandra Farnsworth has already won a state open this summer. Fransworth won the Illinois State open earlier this month. Farnsworth and the rest of the field will begin play Thursday morning. The list below has every player participating and their status.

About the Tennessee Golf Association

In 1914, the Tennessee Golf Association (TGA) was organized at Memphis Country Club as an association of five private clubs. The objective of the Association, as stated in its Constitution, "shall be to promote the game of golf in Tennessee." From these small origins the TGA has become an association which now includes over 200 member clubs, courses, and organizations, comprised of over 32,000 individuals from across the state.
