AMHERST – Phyllis Longobardi continued her domination of the Amherst Golf Club's ladies division early Sunday.

Longobardi fired a two-round 164 to claim the ladies club championship by 14 strokes.

"It's nice to win, but I don't think I had a really good day out there today," Longobardie said. "It was my highest score of the year, but that's sports. Sometimes you're on your game and sometimes you're not."

It's Longobardi's fifth consecutive club championship.

Heather Mitton finished second with a 178 and won the top senior's prize.

Rachel Smith shot 180 to take the runner-up trophy, while Lynn MacKay had the low net of the field at 181.

In the first division, Katilyn Dawson was the top low gross finisher with Leslie Baker placing second. Carol Gothreau was the low net winner with Shirley Faulkenham placing second.

In the second division, Betty Brayley was the low gross finisher with Sandy Huntley placing second. Low net honours went to Judy MacGregor with Sue Carlsen placing second.

The men's championship wraps up later this afternoon. Matt Cormier went into Sunday's final round with a one-stroke advantage.
