The final round of the Kentucky Women’s Open at Heritage Hill Golf Course on Wednesday, July 20 was much less humid than the first, but the golf was still as hot as the opening round. Cloud cover and a light breeze kept temperatures a bit more bearable in round two. There were many great rounds posted to finish off the day. First Round leader, Laura Restrepo, a recent University of Louisville graduate, posted a final round one-under-par 71 to finish at eight-under-par for the tournament. Two bogeys and a triple on the 17th hole spoiled her hopes of repeating her first round magic. She had company at the top, as Lydia Gumm of Radcliff posted a final round 69 to tie. The Florida State University Senior-to-be posted four birdies, three bogeys and an eagle in her final round. The duo headed to a playoff on the eighteenth hole. You could have thrown a blanket over their perfectly placed tee shots. Restrepo hit her ball to about 8 feet and Gumm almost knocked her ball in the hole from the fairway. Restrepo narrowly missed her birdie try and Gumm tapped in her birdie to seal the victory.
Gumm was also the Low Amateur in the field. Kasey Petty of Winchester Canal, Ohio was the Low Professional by one shot over Louisville’s Katie Petrino with a 137 total. Megan Wilshire also finished her tournament at seven-under-par. Our Mid-Amateur Champion (for those 25 and over) was Erin Back of Lexington.
Congratulations to all of our winners and to Gumm, our Champion! We would like to thank Heritage Hill and Head PGA Professional Nick Sweeney for being fantastic hosts and Turtleson and Sales Representative for a terrific tee gift.

First Round Highlights
Temperatures and rounds of golf were red hot at Heritage Hill Golf Course for the opening round of the 2016 Kentucky Women’s Open. 63 ladies teed it up in hopes of becoming this year’s champion and after one round, many are in contention to do just that.
Leading the way is recent University of Louisville graduate, Laura Restrepo. Restrepo carded a terrific, bogey-free opening round of seven-under-par 65. She leads by two shots over Radcliff’s Lydia Gumm, a Florida State University golfer and former University of Louisville teammate, Katie Petrino. Gumm and Petrino both fired rounds of 67 – both boasting 6 birdies and a lone bogey on their cards. Megan Wilshire of Georgetown, a University of North Florida golfer, is currently sitting alone in Fourth after an opening round of four-under-par 68. Another shot back are Kasey Petty of Ohio and Defending Champion Liz Breed, a University of Kentucky grad. The top 17 spots are occupied by players who shot even par or better
