On Monday, November 10, the 2015 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour played the final round of the PKBGT INVITATIONAL at Grandover Resort (East Course). Host of the annual Bridgestone Golf Collegiate tournament, the 2012 NCAA DI Men’s regionals, and the 2011, 2014 & 2015 NCAA DIII Men’s National Championship, Grandover Resort is a challenging course for this three-day event. The event featured 60 players. The field was incredibly strong with 22 of the players ranked within the top-500 by Golfweek/Titliest Junior Rankings, 16 players ranked within the top-500 by Junior Golf Scoreboard, and 17 players ranked within the top-30 by the PKBGT Performance Index. With its depth, this event is the strongest field in PKB Tour history. Eight championship winners and 17 event winners from the 2014 season will be playing at the PKBGT INVITATIONAL.
Emilia Miglaccio (Cary, NC 2017) is golden!
Migliaccio shot one over par with a score of 73 to place first with a three-day total of 218.
