Ams finish 2nd at Tenn. Women's Open
CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (July 21, 2013) -- The 15th Annual Golf Capital of Tennessee Women’s Open has come to a close with Jessica Alexander of Riverview, FL firing a 73 (+1 over par) in the final round to make her 54 hole total 218. Her 1 over par round sealed her win by 2 strokes over Katelyn Sepmoree, Amanda Steinhagen, and Corinna Rees all who shot a 54 hole total of 220 (+4 over par).

Going into the final round, Alexander, Rees, and Haley Wilson were tied for the lead at 145 (+1 over par). Wilson finished with 71-74-81-226, while Rees finished tied for low amateur with 70-75-75-220. Tough pin placements, heat, and an enormous amount of gnats all came into play during the three rounds played at Stonehenge Golf Club.

A $25,250 purse was awarded to all professionals who made the cut. Alexander was presented a $5,000 check by Crossville Mayor, J.H. Graham III.

A special thank you goes out to Stonehenge Golf Club staff, the Fairfield Glade community, and all volunteers who helped make this event happen. This event would not be possible without the help of the city of Crossville.
