Salisbury, NC–The final round of the PKBGT Open Championship was once again plagued by overnight rainfall resulting in holes 11-14 being unplayable for the second time this weekend. The players replayed holes 1-4 to finish the par 71 loop. In one of the most competitive fields to date, the accumulation of over six inches of rainfall in the Piedmont region generated excellent scoring conditions and perfect putting surfaces for the 54 hole competition.
UNC-Chapel Hill commit Nicole Adam’s only round not in the red numbers was today’s final round. However, her opening round 68 proved to be enough for the Pinehurst, NC native to capture her first PKBGT title of 2020 and win her second consecutive tournament on the PKBGT circuit. Adam captured the 2019 Peggy Kirk Bell Junior at Pine Needles back in December of 2019. Adam posted rounds of 68, 70, 71 to win the 54 hole event by four shots. Over the three rounds, Nicole birdied twelve of the 54 holes on the Donald Ross Classic design.
1. Nicole Adam (Pinehurst, NC 2020) / 68 / 70 / 71 = 209 (-4)
T2. Sara Im (Duluth, GA 2023) / 71 / 70 / 72 = 213 (E)
T2. Rory Weinfurther (Midlothian, VA 2020) / 72 / 70 / 71 = 213 (E)
The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour returns to action this weekend (5/30-5/31) in the state of Virginia for the Mid Atlantic Classic at Reston National.
