Pierre Native Wins SDGA Women’s Amateur

BROOKINGS, S.D. – South Dakota women’s golf member Katie Bartlett captured the title on Sunday at the South Dakota Golf Association’s Women’s Amateur played at the Brookings Country Club.

The Coyote senior fired rounds of 75, 77 and 77 for a 229 total over the three-day event to post a two-shot victory over Maggie Murphy.

Bartlett, a Pierre native, was tied with Lani Potter after the opening round at three-over par 75.

She held a two-shot advantage over Julie Jansa after the second round and the lead would grow to as big as eight shots with nine holes to play in Sunday’s final round.

South Dakota women’s golf team will begin its fall season with the Missouri State Payne Stewart Memorial on Sept. 9-10.

Bartlett captured her first SDGA event of the summer the previous week when she teamed with fellow Coyote Julia Hall to win the SDGA Two-Woman Championship in a playoff.

Bartlett was the runner-up in the SDGA Women’s Match Play, losing the championship match to Murphy, 2 & 1.
