CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Final round results of the 10th Vicki DiSantis Girls' Championship held at Pine Island Country Club , N.C. on Sunday, May 3, 2015. Par 35-37--72, 6,065 yards (Course Rating: 74.1/136).

Playing in her first Vicki DiSantis Girls' Championship, high school sophomore Emily Cox of Lancaster, S.C. made a 15-foot par putt on the final hole to capture the title by one stroke. "The last putt almost got me," Cox reflected. "But in the back of my mind, I knew I was going to make it." Starting the day one back of the leader, Cox mixed two late birdies with four bogeys for a final round two-over-par 74. Her two-day total of two-over-par 146 proved to be just enough to edge the rest of the field. Video Interview

Five players had a good chance to claim the victory, but faltered at the uphill 391 yard par-4 18th hole. It played the second toughest in the final round with a 4.932 stroke average. Runners-up Samantha Vodry of Mooresville, N.C. and Anna Redding of Concord, N.C. both made bogey on that hole to miss forcing a playoff.

Also finishing tied for second with Vodry and Redding at three-over-par 147 was two-time defending Jimmy Anderson Girls' champion Jennifer Chang of Cary, N.C. Two late birdies on holes 14 and 15 were not enough to overcome her two-over-par start on the front nine. A final bogey on the par-3 17th knocked her out of contention.

With a birdie on hole 14, Emilia Migliaccio of Cary, N.C. was leading the tournament at one-over-par until she ended her round bogey, double bogey. She finished tied for fifth with first round leader Gracyn Burgess of Lexington, S.C. at four-over-par 148. Burgess, a high school freshman started the day with a one-shot lead but struggled on the back nine. She recorded three bogeys and one double bogey toward a final round five-over-par 77.

2014 champion Kelli Murphy of Elgin, S.C. is a freshman on the golf team at Auburn University and not eligible for the event.
