Thiagaraj victorious by three shots

Cary,NC—The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour posted its fourth event of the year  this weekend at Lochmere Golf Club in Cary NC. The field consisted of over forty girls spanning from Maryland to South Carolina with the winner of the event, Karishma Thiagaraj of Haymarket, Virginia, capturing the Cary Classic Title by three shots with scores of 76-79—155.

Great weather was matched by great play this weekend as Thiagaraj went wire to wire capturing her first PKB title this year. Navigating around the creek that is within the lochmere monster, Thiagaraj’s steady play kept her in the driver seat for most of the tournament.

The win could prove to be good timing increasing her confidence coming into next weeks big  PKB tour event at the notorious UNC Finley Golf Course for the PKBGT UNC Classic.

Following her performance Thiagaraj noted, “It was nice to win this week after being so close to a win at the first major on tour a few weeks ago. I played solid yesterday, but today I struggled a bit at the beginning  of my round and as the day progressed I began to find my rhythm and was pleased retained the lead in route to earning my first title on the tour this year.”
