Richmond, Va. - Virginia sophomore women's golfer Lauren Coughlin (Chesapeake, Va.) scored a 3-and-2 victory in the 36-hole match play final to win the 88th Virginia State Golf Association Women's Amateur Championship Saturday (July 13) at The Country Club of Virginia's Tuckahoe Creek Course.
Coughlin owned as much as a seven holes up lead in the afternoon session before outlasting a rising high school senior from Floyd County High School.
Coughlin became the third player in just less than 15 years to win back-to-back titles in the event.
In her combined 10 match-play victories that she collected in capturing two straight triumphs at the event, Coughlin registered nine wire-to-wire wins. She trailed briefly--three holes to be exact--to start her semifinal round match on Friday.
"It means a lot and definitely feels really good. I really like match play," said Coughlin, who will have her name engraved on the Kohler Trophy. "I knew it was going to be a lot tougher this year because everyone is playing really well right now."
