It took a while, but Andrea Kraus used two late birdies to turn back a determined bid by Brooke Rottman, and captured the annual Women's Golf Association championship at Baltimore Country Club yesterday. The triumph gave the Woodholme CC member a sweep of the organization's top three titles this year.
In winning the event for the third time, Kraus finished with a share of the day's low round, an 81 over the East Course, and a 36-hole total of 157. Rottman, also a Woodholme member, was the runner-up, 74-85-159.
