Alyssa Montgomery picked the right week to get hot.

The Virginia Tech junior carded rounds of 67-70-70 at Holston Hills Country Club to finish 9-under 207 to win the Tennessee Women’s Amateur championship on Thursday by four strokes over Nicole Whitson of Knoxville.

Montgomery set the tone for her week by opening with a flawless, bogey-free round of 5-under of 67 on Tuesday. Whitson was up to the challenge, turning in an opening round of 69 or her own to stay within striking distance of Montgomery.

Both golfers shot 2-under rounds of 70 in the second round, setting up Thursday’s final round showdown.

Whitson gave a stroke back when she bogeyed the first hole and she still trailed by three at the turn. Three consecutive bogeys on holes 13, 14, 15 dashed her title hopes, as she finished with an even par 72 for her final 18 holes.

Montgomery, who finished seventh in this event last year, turned in her third straight subpar round with a 70 to win the championship by four strokes.

It was a breakthrough win for the Knoxville resident, who was without a victory since winning the 2019 AJGA Scott Stallings Junior Invitational.
