Kraus' 75 wins Titleholders Cup

July 07, 1999|By SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Long-hitting Andrea Kraus was as blistering on the par-5s as yesterday's oppressive heat as she won the 40th renewal of the Greiner Titleholders Cup with a par-equaling tour of 38-37--75 at Baltimore Country Club.

Kraus, from Woodholme CC, who also won this event in 1993-94, had a five-stroke margin over Bonnie Fry of Maryland G&CC, 80, and Connie Pifer, Sparrows Point CC, 80. Shirley Williams of Mount Pleasant GC also shot 80 and earned the Chance Cup for Seniors.

Kraus birdied five of the seven par-5s, reached several greens in two and two-putted. For the round, her putting was somewhat shaky as she finished with six birdies, six pars and six bogeys over the 6,030-yard East Course.

The leaders:

Andrea Kraus, 38-37--75; Bonnie Fry, 39-41--80; Connie Pifer, 38-42--80; Jane DuBois, 42-42--84; Kathryn Rudo, 39-46--85; Leigh Farrell, 41-46--87; Cindy Peterka, 40-48--88; Joanne Smith, 42-46--88; Sharon Pusin, 43-45--88; Judy Mehrling, 44-44--88; Susan Zeiler, 46-43--89; Sally Casey, 45-44--89; Moon Kim, 43-46--89; Tinker Sanger, 45-45--90; Jennifer Thompson, 42-48--90. Seniors: Shirley Williams, 38-42--80; Joan Winchester, 41-40--81.
