SANFORD, N.C. (April 20, 2016) -- Final results from the 13th North Carolina Senior Women's Championship conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) on Wednesday, April 20 at Carolina Trace Country Club's Lake Course in Sanford.

Patty Moore of Charlotte won her record
fourth NC Senior Women's Championship on Wednesday

The all-time winningest women's golfer in CGA history, Patty Moore of Charlotte, added to her list of accolades Wednesday by winning the North Carolina Senior Women's Championship for a record fourth time (2004, 2008, 2014). Her twelve foot birdie putt on the final hole sealed a one shot victory for her 18th overall CGA title. 

First round leader Angela Stewart of Greenville helped Moore erase the five shot deficit she faced starting the day. On the par-3 6th, Stewart's ball found the hazard three times, leading to a 13. "As soon as [Angela] did that, both mine and Pat [Brogden]'s ears perked up, like 'Oh, we are back in it'," said Moore. Stewart would finish T-4 at 17-over for the championship.

Pat Brogden of Garner has claimed this championship three times. Also playing in the final group with Stewart and Moore, she took the lead after Stewart's mishap. However, Brogden's triple bogey on hole 12 gave Moore a two shot lead. Moore would later relinquish that lead on the 17th hole, hitting her second shot over the green, making double bogey. With the players tied on the final green, Brogden would be first to putt for birdie from 15 feet. Her ball missed falling  the cup by half an inch from the left edge.

Moore's converted birdie on the final hole was her fourth on Wednesday, part of the day's best round of one-over-par 73. "When [the putt] went in I felt relief, joy, satisfaction, luck, you know, all of that," she said after finishing with a two-day total of six-over 150.

Being an 18-time CGA champion, Moore is familiar with hitting putts for a chance at victory. "There are times when you are in the position to make a shot to win and you don't," said Moore, a member of the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame. "So to be able to be in that situation and make it is special." 

Defending champion Kim Briele of New Bern finished T-6 in the Championship Division at 18-over 162.

In the Carolinas Division, Sook Hee Yang of Jamestown successfully defended her title by five over Carole Jones of Hillsborough. The Carolinas Division plays a shorter course. Jones, the 2005 Carolinas Senior Women's champion, was able to repeat in the Super Senior category.
