AMHERST – New Glasgow’s Julia Henderson shot a 70 to capture the 2014 Amherst Ladies Invitational Golf Tournament trophy Wednesday afternoon at the Amherst Golf Club.
“My putting went well and didn’t go so well,” said Henderson, who was playing the Amherst Ladies Invitational for the first time. “I had a couple three-putts but I also had a few birdies.”
Henderson birdied hole numbers 4,5,8 and 15, and bogied hole numbers 12, 16, 18.
“Eliminating three-putts is always something I look to do in a round,” said Henderson.
Janice Coleman was the low net of the field after shooting a 98. With a handicap of 31, Coleman played in the third division and finished with a net score of 67.
“My putting and my drives were working well today, and it’s the first time I broke a 100, so I had a lucky day,” said Coleman, who was playing her third Amherst Ladies Invitational.
Coleman says she needs to improve her chipping game.
Both players said the course was in great shape.
“The course is in beautiful shape. It’s absolutely perfect,” said Henderson.
Temperatures reached a humid 26 C.
“It was very muggy out there but the rain held off, pretty well, until everybody finished,” said Coleman. “People got hit by rain on the last couple holes but that was about it.”
