Meghan Stasi took full advantage of her home course knowledge during the 2022 Women’s Match Play Championship at Tavistock Country Club. Her steady play and solid putting proved to be the difference throughout her 4 matches, earning her a 9th title. She got off to an early lead against finalist Ava O’Sullivan (Whitford). Stasi was 5 up after 11 holes. O’Sullivan battled back to be 3 down after the first 18. The second 18 went back and forth. Stasi won the first three holes to go 6 up. Then O’Sullivan won 5, 6, and 7 to cut the lead to 3 up. Stasi won the 9th, then O’Sullivan won 10 and 14 to be 2 down with 4 to play. Stasi then closed out the match winning 15 and 16 to win the match 4 and 2.
The quarterfinals were the closest we have ever had. 2 of the 4 matches came down to the 18th hole, and the other 2 went 19 holes. One of the 19 hole matches was Stasi against Olivia Strigh (Tavistock). The semi-finals saw O’Sullivan beat Grace Smith (Springhaven) 3 and 2 and Stasi beat Michelle Cox (Lehigh) 3 and 2.
