Winchester scores Amateur triumph

August 30, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Joan Winchester shot 1-over par on the back nine to separate herself from the rest of the field, and her 38-37--75 won the inaugural Baltimore Women's Amateur championship yesterday at Mount Pleasant Golf Course.

Winchester, from Rolling Road Golf Club, included three birdies in her 2-over-par tour of the 5,294-yard course. Earlier this summer, she had won the Women's Metropolitan and Elkridge Seniors titles.

Shirley Williams, the Spring Publinx champion, shot 38-38--76 on her home course to take second place. She was followed by Tinker Sanger, Green Spring, 39-38--77. Amy Pappas and Janice Hoffert tied for low net score at 71 and needed five extra playoff holes before Pappas earned the prize.

The event, sponsored and conducted by the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation, attracted 35 players, including 16 with handicaps of 10 and lower.
