McKenna Montgomery Captures 25th Women’s Amateur

McKenna Montgomery from Old Hickory Golf Club captured the 25th Metropolitan Women’s Amateur title Friday with a 73-77-150 (+6) performance at Sunset Hills Country Club.  Montgomery, playing in her first Women’s Amateur, is a sophomore at Union University in Jackson, TN.  A Westminster Christian Academy product, Montgomery went to Union to play basketball; however, after discussions with the golf coach she will be playing both basketball and golf at Union this coming year.  Montgomery was the co-leader after Round 1 with Kathy Glennon, both at 1-over par 73.  

Starting the day 5 shots back, Kayla Eckelkamp (Franklin County CC, pictured left) shared the best round of the day with Clair Solovic with 2-over par 74.  Today’s round vaulted Eckelkamp up the leaderboard into a runner-up finish with rounds of 78-74.  

In the Net Championship, Nannette Baker (Norwood Hills CC) would capture the title with net rounds of 74-68-142 to best runner-up Carol Cullinane (St. Louis Women’s GA) by 8 shots.  Baker and Cullinane are pictured at right.
