ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The 39th edition of the Scott Robertson Memorial saw one teenager cruise to victory while another came from behind to capture the trophy.
The girls’ 15-18 division belonged to Macy Pate, who entered the final round one shot back of the lead. Despite a bogey on the 18th hole, she was able to shoot a 69 for the round to finish a for a weekend total of 208 strokes, five under par.
“Stayed really patient out there. Made a lot of clutch putts when I needed it and just played solid,” Pate said. “It means a lot. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a bigger win like this so it means a lot that I was able to put three solid rounds together and just played consistently.”
Pate, a Winston-Salem, NC native, will be staying close to home, competing for Wake Forest in the fall.
In the boys’ 15-18 division, Tyler Mawhinney won by five strokes to finish six-under-par for the tournament.
“Yeah it will definitely help me get in other events and just a big confidence booster going into the summer,” Mawhinney said. “I actually had no idea what I was at until I went into the second shot on 18. I was a little shocked that I was up by that much but it was definitely a relief when I saw that.”
Mawhinney was the only golfer in the division to finish all three rounds at par or better this weekend.
Lord Botetourt’s Ashton Harper finished tied for seventh at one over par.
