The sun shined brightly on Chloe Holder of Williamston, S.C. on an otherwise cloudy weekend. Holder held on to her 18-hole lead to capture the 14th Vicki DiSantis Girls’ Championship by two shots

“I'm feeling pretty great. I'm excited for sure,” said Holder. “Honestly to me it kind of proves that I can come out here and win. I can do this. I can hang with everybody and I can win.”

The day started out a little rocky for Holder after a bogey on No. 3 pulled Katherine Schuster of Kill Devil Hills, N.C. within one shot of the lead.

“I thought, ‘Okay, I gotta focus a little bit here,’” said Holder. “So, I was able to make birdie on number seven, the par 5. That gave me back some momentum but then I turned around and bogeyed number 8.”

That's the point that Holder got into the zone birdieing the next three holes in a row. The birdies on Nos. 9, 10 and 11 gave Holder a five-shot lead heading into the par-4 12th hole.

“That really pushed me to the top and to stay there,” said Holder. “I was just playing steady golf after that.”

Holder never relinquished her lead on Sunday but she wasn’t in the clear at that point.  Alexia Siehl of Fort Mill, S.C. started the round four shots back of Holder, but was able to finish within two.

They matched each other with a pair of 1-under-par, 35s on the front nine. A birdie on the par-3, 17th hole by Siehl got her back within two shots of the lead heading into No. 18. She would finish round two with a 1-under-par, 71 and 145 total for the championship to claim the runner-up spot.

Siehl and Kelly Topiwala of Mathews, N.C. both shot 1-under-par, 71; the low rounds of the day.

Kayleigh Reinke of Rock Hill, S.C., finished in solo third place with a 3-over-par, 147 total for the championship.
