Mo Martin Wins Women's British Open!
Monday, 14 July 2014


July 14th---On a tour that rarely produces Cinderella stories, with so many of the LPGA’s stars at their best this year, Mo Martin delivered a fairy-tale ending winning the Ricoh Women’s British Open on Sunday.

At 31, the third-year LPGA member who spent six years toiling on the Symetra Tour, Martin made her first LPGA title a major championship after hitting what will be remembered as one of the greatest shots in major championship history. She hit a 3-wood off the flagstick at the 72nd hole, nearly making double eagle, and closed with an eagle to post the round of the day. Remarkably, it was her first eagle this season, just the third of her LPGA career.

Area golf fans will remember Martin as a fan favorite when she competed in the Symetra Tour’s Vidalia Championship in 2011 at Hawk’s Point Golf Club in Vidalia, where she placed 13th with 3 day total of 219.
