Defending champion Andrea Kraus, 2-down after eight holes, played the next nine holes in 2-under-par and emerged with a 2 and 1 triumph over Connie Pifer in the 62nd Women's Metropolitan golf championship at Woodholme Country Club yesterday.
The pivotal hole was the 15th, a 407-yard, par-5 with a sharply
sloped green. Both players missed the green, and Pifer wound up 10 feet from the cup in four. Kraus, a Woodholme member, was in the right bunker. Her sand shot finished 18 inches from the cup.
