 Sarah Bae of Pinehurst, N.C. claimed medalist honors with a three-under-par 68

The 19th Carolinas Women Match Play Championship got underway Wednesday morning with 35 of the best players in the Carolinas vying for a spot in the 16-woman championship bracket. Numerous players got off to a steady start, none more so than Sarah Bae of Pinehurst, N.C. who made the turn at four-under-par. Bae found her rhythm early with a birdie on No. 2, then proceeded to birdie three of the last four holes on the front side. “I just tried to have fun with my group and see the course so I would be ready for tomorrow,” Bae said.

The back nine at Bermuda Run Country Club showed its teeth, playing nearly five strokes more difficult than the front. Bae ignored the temptation to focus on her opportunity to garner medalist honors and simply wanted to “play steady golf coming in.” The North Carolina State rising senior did just that, carding a one-over-par 37, which tied for the best score on the back side. That was more than enough for the four-time CGA champion to claim medalist honors. Bae had the opportunity to play with two-time defending champion Mallory Hetzel of Waynesville, N.C. “I enjoyed the day; we both have an appreciation for the game. It was a fun round,” Bae said. As defending champion, Hetzel will begin her title defense as the No. 1 seed. Not much will change for Bae as she heads into the match play portion of the championship. “I need to keep steady and focus on my game,” Bae said.

Much of the field anxiously awaited around the scoreboard to see what the cut for the Championship bracket was going to be. Ultimately Pendleton Bogache  of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Jaelyn Tindal of Rock Hill, S.C., and Morgan Laird of Waxhaw, N.C. found themselves in a three-for-one playoff for the No. 16 seed after shooting 77. All three ladies made par on No. 9, the first playoff hole. The playoff continued to No. 1 where Bogache, who is a rising sophomore at Georgetown, knocked in a birdie to win the playoff.  

The Championship bracket matches will begin at 8:00 a.m. Thursday. The rest of the field has been flighted based on qualifying score and those matches will immediately follow the Championship bracket.  All ties for seeds were determined by blind draw.
