On Sunday, October 27th, the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour held the last chance Invitational Qualifier at Bermuda Run Country Club’s West course.
Ten players brought fierce competition to earn the final two spots into the coveted PKBGT Invitational played at Bermuda Run’s east and west courses. The event, held November 9-11, 2019, features the highest ranked field on the PKBGT national circuit bringing in players from the east coast and beyond.
The “last chance” qualifier, held on the host course for the Invitational’s first round, serves as the last opportunity for players to qualify for the coveted event. The top 2 finishers of the qualifier earned their way into the event. Let’s take a look and see who punched their tickets!
In the Prep Division at this weekend’s last Chance Qualifier, Elizabeth Beek (Blue Bell, PA 2023) claimed the 1st spot into the Invitational with a round of 73. Beek, who traveled from afar to earn her spot, carded birdies on the 7th and 9th holes to win the spot by six strokes.
Finishing in a tie for second were Chloe Pittman (Davidson, NC 2020) and Gabriela Cruz (High Point, NC 2021) with scores of 79. With both two players in second place and only one spot into the Invitational, the two battled it out in a sudden-death playoff. Off of the first hole of Bermuda Run’s West course, Pittman came out on top, with an impressive up and down for a par. Gabriela Cruz finished in third place for the day.
The two players who qualified will come back to Bermuda Run in two weeks to play in one of the tour’s championships. Pittman and Beek will be a part of the 72 player field in a chance to take home the most adorned title of the 2020 season : The 2019 PKBGT Invitational title!
