First winners of 2021!
It took a playoff to determine the overall Girl's champion this past weekend at Bowling Green CC.
Lydia Swan and Lexi Schulman headed to a playoff after tying at 152 for the tournament Sunday afternoon and a par on the 1st playoff hole would be enough to secure the victory for Lydia Swan. Lydia would post 4 birdies for the tournament and a solid 75-77 in cold and windy weather, This is her first victory on the GolfWeek Jr Tour after a pair of second places finishes in 2020 and 2018.
