PERRY, GA (August 23, 2016) -- Laura Coble of Augusta posted a final-round 2-over-par 74 to win her third consecutive Senior Women's Championship. The nineteenth edition of this competition took place at Houston Lake Country Club, August 22-23.

Coble's 4-over-par 148 (74-74) total was nine strokes better than second place finisher, Susan Rheney of Greensboro (81-76). Mary Riley rounded out the top three with a total of 158.

The victory was Coble's third consecutive Georgia Senior Women's Championship and she joins Brenda Pictor and Claudeen Lindberg as the only competitors to win three titles.

"It is hard to believe that this is the third year that I have been a Senior," said Coble. "Time is going by fast but I have enjoyed it."

Maria Johnson of Jessup won the Senior 1 Flight with a 156 (76-80).

Janice Murphy of Lizella won the Senior 2 Flight with a 183 (82-81).
