Vic senior Wooster wins at Pinehurst

Victorian senior Sue Wooster has won the North and South Senior Amateur Championship at Pinehurst Resort – home of this year's back-to-back US Open Championships.

Wooster finished with rounds of 72-72-76 to be at 4-over par, two shots clear of Mary-Jane Hiestand who finished second. 

The North & South Senior Amateur Championship puts competitors through a complete test of skill. By the end of the championship, competitors know that you have had to hit every shot. It’s just you, the golf course, and the players you’re playing with. It is golf at its purest form.

Golfers come from around the Carolinas, the East Coast, and the world to enter the North & South each year.

Most of the mid-amateurs at one point dreamed of playing on the professional tour (some of them even tried it), while the younger ones still harbor those dreams. Some will make it as PGA and LPGA Tour stars, like Jack Nicklaus, Curtis Strange, Davis Love III, Corey Pavin, Babe Didrikson, Louise Suggs, Donna Andrews, and Morgan Pressel.
