N. Carolina Women's Am: McKim defends title
ASHEBORO, NC (June 13, 2013) -- Final results of the 64th North Carolina Women’s State Amateur Championship hosted by Pinewood Country Club in Asheboro, NC on Thursday, June 13, 2013. Par 36-36—72 5758 yards. Course/Slope Rating: 73.5/130

Courtney McKim of Raleigh, NC successfully defended her title to capture the 2013 North Carolina Women’s Amateur Championship by two shots over Alaina Yeatts of Durham, NC.

McKim found herself with a one shot lead after Yeatts made a double bogey after her ball found a tough greenside bunker. “After I realized I had a one shot lead with four holes left I just made sure I made par the rest of the way in,” McKim said.

“I even hit a 5 wood on the 18th just to make absolutely sure I would find the fairway. I hadn’t done that all week.” When asked how it feels to successfully defend her title the recently graduated Alabama women’s golf team member simply smiled and said, “It feels great!”

Throughout the week a big spotlight was put on 12-year-old Rachel Kuehn of Asheville, NC who not only showed poise and promise but a great game with a bright future. “I had so much fun this week,” she said smiling all the way. “I’m so excited to have won my flight!”

Donna Johnson of Asheboro, NC and a local Pinewood Country Club member used her local knowledge to shoot a three over par 75---231 to capture the State tee division by an impressive six shots.

Angela Stewart, MD of Greenville, NC won the Senior division while Carole Jones of Hillsborough, NC won the Super Senior division. Alaina Yeatts of Durham, NC won the overall junior trophy. Players were placed into flights within their division for the final round.
