Savannah, GA– The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour headed to Savannah, GA for the final round of the Savannah Girls Classic at Savannah Harbor Golf Club.
Christina Surcey (Cartersville, GA 2024) entered the day four shots behind but shot the round of the day in the Bell National division to make a move up the leaderboard. After making her birdie putt on the 18th green, Surcey walked away champion of the Savannah Girls Classic. Overnight leader Megan Kirkpatrick (Woodbine, MD 2024) struggled on Sunday following her 74 on Saturday. Kirkpatrick ended up tied for second with Hannah Barrett (Richmond Hill, GA 2023). Barrett played consistent once again on her way to earning more PKB hardware! Alana Hall (Boca Raton, FL 2024) and Lilly Hall (Yorktown, VA 2024) tied for fourth over the weekend. Both players birdied the ninth hole on Sunday to share medalist honors.

Margaret Ulrich (Wichita, KS 2025) clung to a two stroke lead entering the final round. Ulrich birdied two holes and played her front nine in even par.

Her highlight of the round was the birdie on the par-4 twelfth but it ultimately wouldn’t be enough to come from behind and she’d settle for solo second.
