A massive congratulations to our SOS Ambassador Trish. Wearing her favourite Tiger Orange outfit on the last day (as seen here). Trish enjoyed a wire to wire victory...FRENCH LICK, Indiana, July 12, 2017 - Trish Johnson (Bristol, England) completed a wire-to-wire victory at the inaugural Senior LPGA Championship presented by Old National Bank on Wednesday on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort. She turned in a final-round 73 to finish at 4-under, 212 for the 54-hole event, three shots clear of Michele Redman (Minneapolis, Minnesota).
“I’m often asked what my favorite course in the world is and I always say St. Andrews, but I think this place (Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort) has taken over,” said Johnson, who has now won twice on the course. “It feels fantastic, this is the reason you play golf to try and win something like this. It is going to be a very, very fun evening.”
Johnson posted rounds of 67-72-73 to win the first place check of $90,000. Redman collects the second place payday of $54,397.
“I hit my driver so well all week,” said Johnson when asked about the keys to victory. “I was quite long so I was hitting a lot of short irons in. Some of these greens are pretty wicked so if you have short clubs in that is a major advantage.”
