NC Women's Amateur: Perry wins second crown

Wallace, NC -- Final results of the 62nd North Carolina Women's State Amateur Championship hosted by River Landing Country Club, River Course on Thursday, June 16 2011. Par 36-36-72, 5992 yards.

Katherine Perry of Cary, NC wins her second NC Women's State Amateur crown by shooting a final round, 69--220 to win by an impressive nine strokes over Katja Dammann of Pinehurst, NC. Perry carded seven birdies on her card in the final round which she attributed to a hot putter. "I finally figured out the greens and I had 10 less putts, that helps," Perry said with a laugh. When asked what it meant to her on winning a second women's state amateur championship she said, "It means a lot to me, this is a very prestigious and historical championship and I'm honored." Perry also captured this title back in 2009 at Wilson Country Club in Wilson, NC.

Katherine said she will be back next year when the NC Women's State Amateur Championship will head to Mimosa Hills Golf and Country Club in Morganton, NC.

In the State tee division, Cynthia Curry of Charlotte, NC shot another round in the 70's to win by three shots over Clate Aydlett of Elizabeth City, NC. These players play a shorter course. Curry also won the super senior division.

Patty Moore of Charlotte, NC won the senior division with a 232 and finished in 4th place overall. Angela Stewart of Greenville, NC was the runner-up with a 238.

Players were placed into flights for the final round within their division. Flighted results are also listed below.

The NCWGA would like to thank River Landing and their members for a wonderful week of warm hospitality.
