Monday’s high temperatures and chance of rain was the perfect setting for the players to get in a challenging round of golf! Tee times for the Georgia Series at Henderson Golf Club were set to commence at 9:00 AM off of Hole #1 on Monday, June 13th. Players arrived at the practice facilities eager to get the round started and potentially take home the winning hardware.

Kayla Silvers (Calhoun, GA 2023) scored two birdies on her way to first. Silvers took home the championship trophy with a score of 91 (+19).
