June 14th, 2018

Keene, NH-  After a beautiful day at Keene Country Club, the final round of the inaugural Women’s Team Championship has ended with the team of Kate Billings of Rochester Country Club and Chelsea Sedlar of Nashua Country Club still on top with a final round team Gross round of two over par, 72, with a tournament total of 141.
 
The pair had another strong round today. Billings fired out an early key birdie on the first hole to really set the team into motion for the rest of their round. Sedlar commented on her own round saying “unlike yesterday, I wasn’t able to make birdies on the course today, so I contributed by making pars. I was able to make them and give Kate chances at birdie without having to worry about saving a par.”
 
The team of Billings and Sedlar used their great team dynamics to their full advantage during both rounds to help secure them the Championship. Sedlar said “Playing with Kate is always fun. She is a solid golfer and deserves more credit that I think she gets. Not only is she a great partner, she always keeps her spirits high and she’s a competitor. She wants to go out there and do well and I think that drive is what helped her play so well today and helped us take home the win.” The team relied on each other and both players contributed their low scores each round for the win.
 
Amy Peters of Hannover Country Club and Betsy Knights of Hanover Country Club locked in second place in the Championship today after a strong round of one over par, 73, with a total Gross tournament score of 146. Both Peters and Knights fired out a birdie hole on the back today. The team held their own throughout the Championship and rightfully deserve their place on the leaderboard with the next team 11 strokes behind them.
 
In the Net Division, the team of Cherryl Perreault of Keene Country Club and Ruth Macmurray of Keene Country Club came out on top with a total team net score of twenty under par, 124 for the tournament. Two key Net Eagles were fired on holes three and five today by Perreault to help keep the team Net score low to help secure the top spot on the Net leaderboard.
