Recap: Katherine Perry Hamski Tradition

Greensboro, NC The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour headed to Bryan Park Golf Club for the final round of the Katherine Perry Hamski Girls Tradition. 

Bell National

Due to incoming inclement weather, the Katherine Perry Hamski Tradition final round was canceled meaning the first round would determine our 2023 champions. It was very tight at the top of the Bell leaderboard as 15 players would end up with four strokes of the lead creating an exciting finish to the round. Heather Appelson (Wake Forest, NC 2023) and Emerson B. Dever (Durham, NC 2025) would separate themselves from the pack and post matching 74’s (+2) and go into a sudden-death playoff. Neither of the girls flinched during the playoff and it would take FIVE playoff holes to decide our champion. On the fifth playoff hole, Heather Appelson would claim the victory with a par. She made four birdies during her round including three in a row from the third hole through the fifth! Dever had two birdies of her own during her round to get her into into the playoff. There was a four way tie for third between Ann-Sophie Bourgault (Quebec, Canada 2026), Reagan Folk (Madison, GA 2024), Anna Howerton (Winston Salem, NC 2023), and Anne-Lea Lavoie (Quebec City, Canada 2026).  Bourgault and Lavoie both made two birdies on the day while Howerton and Folk made three a piece.

Leonie Tavares (Mirabel, Canada 2028) picked up a couple of clutch birdies down the stretch on the fourteenth and sixteenth holes to give herself a lead.

Grace Anderson (Burlington, Canada 2024) and Elizabeth Sullivan (Atlanta, GA 2025) both played their back nines incredibly shooting 36 (E) and 38 (+2), respectively, but it end up not being enough to catch Tavares and they would settle tied for second.
