Montgomery Leads the 31st Metropolitan Women's Amateur

St. Louis, MO - After a sunny day of golf at Westborough Country Club for the 31st Metropolitan Women’s Amateur, four players have the solo lead in their respective divisions. Thirty-three women came together to participate in this year’s championship. The first group started the day at 8:00am, and the final group finished their round before 3:00pm. Westborough Country Club provided a tight track that challenged the ladies throughout the day. The Championship Flight plays using gross scores, while Flights A through C use net scores.  

In the Championship Flight, McKenna Montgomery of Persimmon Woods Golf Club fired a one-under (-1) par to sit in the solo lead after Round 1. The round started off rough for Montgomery, a former Lindenwood University golfer, with two bogies in the first three holes, but she fought back to earn five birdies throughout her round. Behind Montgomery at two-over (+2) par are Kathy Glennon of the Country Club of St. Albans and defending champion Gracie Piar of Spencer T. Olin Golf Course tied for second. Glennon also had a rough start to her round with a bogey on Hole 1, but pushing through an up-and-down round with three birdies, she finds herself within range. Piar, a California State University-Northridge golfer, also had an up-and-down round starting with a bogey, but fighting back after each fall, she finished the day with a birdie and just three back of the lead. Sitting tied for fourth are Peyton Cusick of the Metropolitan eClub and Tina Jones of the Country Club of St. Albans at four-over (+4) par.

Behind her, is Trish Friley of Persimmon Woods Golf Club with a net score of three-over (+3) par to sit in second.
