Hayley Hammond of Mooresville Captures 65th NC Women's Amateur

Lumberton, NC – Final results of the 65th North Carolina Women’s Amateur Championship hosted by PineCrest Country Club on Thursday, June 5, 2014.  Par 36-36-72   6131 yards (73.5/130).

Hayley Hammond of Mooresville, NC captures her first even major women’s championship crown by shooting an even par final round of 72—219.  Hammond cleared the field by four shots after producing four birdies on her card for the day.  “This course just sets up really well for my game,”  Hammond said.  During the outward nine Hammond could not seem to shake off fellow competitors Mallory Hetzel of Waynesville, NC and 59-year-old Pat Brogden of Garner, NC.  All three players were still tied for the lead or one shot apart from each other leading into their back nine.  Hammond would then go on to birdie the par 5 11th and would hit her approach to within a foot for a tap in birdie on the long par 4 13th.  “It was after I hit that shot close on 13 where I started to believe that I really have a chance to win this.  I was shaking so badly that I just wanted to tap in that putt and go to the clubhouse but I still had five more holes to go,” Hammond laughed.  “Luckily the momentum shifted in my favor and I was able to par out and come out on top.”  With tears in her eyes overcome with joy Hammond said, “This win means the world to me.  I love my state, I love golf and I’ve never won anything like this before.  I’m just so excited I can’t believe it!” 

Defending champion, Courtney McKim of Cary, NC finished T5th after shooting an even par round of 72 without any warm-up. 

Pat Brogden not only finished as the overall runner-up but she also claimed the overall senior champion prize.  Brogden shot a five over par round of 77—223.  “I just didn’t make as many putts out there today,” Brogden said.  “My swing threw me off a little bit but I hung in there and even though I didn’t win I’m happy with my finish.” 

In the state tees division 12-year-old Rachel Kuehn of Asheville, NC shot a 77—229 to win her flight and the overall division by seven shots.  Clate Aydlett of Elizabeth City, NC captured the Senior division (age 62+) by three shots over Cynthia Curry of Charlotte, NC.  This division plays a shorter course.
