Salisbury, NC–On Saturday, May 23 the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour ended their 76-day hiatus from tournament play due to the Coronavirus-19 pandemic when the trio of Victoria Cook (Reidsville, NC 2020), Anna Howerton (Winston-Salem, NC 2023), and Megan Morris (Cary, NC 2021) struck their opening tee balls at high-noon on the Donald Ross Classic Design at Country Club of Salisbury. Due to flooding, holes 11-14 were unplayable today. The course was rerouted for the competitors to replay holes 1-4 with hole #3 being played as a par-4.
Leading the Bell National field is Nicole Adam (Pinehurst, NC 2020), after an opening round of 68 (-3).
