Carolinas Women's: Kate Rose Higgins defends
DURHAM, NC – Final results of the 87th Carolinas Women’s Amateur Championship hosted by Treyburn Country Club on Thursday, May 23, 2013 (5825 yards, Par 36-36—72 Course/Slope Rating: 73.3/131).

Katie Rose Higgins of Charleston, SC successfully defends her title after shooting a 3-under par round of 69—213 to win the 87th Carolinas Women’s Amateur Championship. Higgins knew she needed to shoot low to add another CGA title to her resume. “My goal was to shoot four under. We were all pretty tight early on and when Kathryn (Miranda) went birdie-birdie on the first two holes I knew it was going to be a horse race.” Higgins carded five birdies and two bogeys on the day. She was heading into the par 4 18th 4-under par (her goal for the day) but unfortunately missed a small putt for par and finished with a bogey. Either way she maintained her three shot lead over Miranda and was able to take home the most historic trophy for women’s golf in the Carolinas yet again.

In the Carolinas tees Melissa Sage of Charlotte, NC and Sook Hee Yang of Jamestown, NC finished in a tie for first but Sage won the first place prize in a score card playoff. This division plays a shorter course.

Ashley Rose of N. Augusta, SC (228) won the Senior trophy while Carole Jones of Hillsborough, NC won the Super Senior division for the fourth straight year.
