Communications Sr. Associate
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – LSU senior-to-be golfer Lindsay Gahm fired a 2-under par round of 70 to get a one-stroke victory Wednesday in the Lexmark Kentucky Women’s Open at Oxmoor Country Club.
Playing in her home town, the Lady Tiger golfer became just the second player in the event’s 17-year history to win back-to-back titles, having won in 2012 at Champion Trace in Nicholasville, Ky.
“That’s the biggest thing, being here in Louisville and having my whole family out watching me and some friends,” said Gahm, in the Louisville Courier Journal. “It’s always good to win any golf tournament. It’s very special for me going into the fall.”
Gahm finished with a 36-hole total of 142 (72-70) after a final round that included a four-hour rain delay. University of Alabama sophomore-to-be Emma Talley finished second at 72-71—143.
Gahm eagled the par-5 10th hole and then birdied the par-4 12th and out of the weather delay, also birdied the par-3 13th to get to 3-under par for the tournament, enough of a margin as she got home in 2-under 70.
