Stone Mountain, GA– The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour began the 2020-2021 season in the heart of the peach belt for the Atlanta Girls Classic hosted at the Stonemont Course at Stone Mountain Golf Resort. A questionable forecast to begin the day turned into a delightful day out on the links perched against Stone Mountain, where the popular Netflix show Ozark filmed a portion of each season just across the lake from the golf course. A bunched leaderboard in both divisions leaves plenty of players the opportunity to earn their spot in the 2020 Tournament of Champions.

The Georgia native Yedam Lee (Lawrenceville, GA 2021) holds a three-shot lead over the field after her opening round 77 (+5) that included two birdies on each nine.

By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the tour focused on developing tournament experience at the player’s pace. The 2020-2021 season will feature over 110 tournaments in 9 states on the East Coast, and with over 1,000 members, the PKBGT is the largest girl’s only tour in the country.  Learn more about the PKBGT at http://www.pkbgt.org/.
