Cara Basso Wins 116th Women’s Match Play Championship

What a week of golf at Spring Ford Country Club for the 116th Women’s Match Play Championship.  In the end, Cara Basso (Whitford) prevailed 4 and 3 over Catherine Elliott (Merion) in a wet and grueling 36-hole final.  Basso’s long game was impressive, while Elliott’s short game was unflappable for most of the match.  

In the first flight final, Karen McFadden (Overbrook) won on the 19th hole against Karen Hendricks (Indian Valley).

Suzi Spotleson (RiverCrest) was the low qualifier with 74, while Nicoll Keeney (Wilmington) captured low net honors in qualifying with 75.
