Kirk repeats as Carolinas Women’s Amateur champ

Mother Nature was not very cooperative during the third and final round of the 89th Carolinas Women’s Amateur Championship as a steady rain fell for most of the morning at Treyburn Country Club.

Katie Kirk, the 2014 champion, battled the elements and held off fellow competitors to claim the title for the second consecutive year. Kirk shot a two-over 74 on Thursday, which left her with a total score of one-under 215, good enough for a two-stroke victory over runner-up Sarah Bae (one-over 217).
