The stellar year continues for Brenda Pictor of Marietta who posted a 4-over-par 76 to qualify for the U.S. Senior Women's Amateur Championship. This was an 18-hole qualifier held at Country Club of Roswell on September 4, with four qualifying spots on the line.
Pictor piled up four birdies during her round to finish three strokes ahead of the field. She captured the Georgia Senior Women's Match Play Championship earlier this year. Also qualifying was Shelly White of Atlanta after posting a 7-over-par 79. White teamed up with her husband to win the inaugural GSGA Mixed Team Championship earlier this year.
There were four players that finished at 11-over-par so a playoff was needed to determine the final qualifying spots and alternate positions. Ann Lanier of Fairhope, Alabama and Chris Spivey of Pell City, Alabama prevailed to earn the last two qualifying spots. Lin Culver of Palm Coast, Florida will be the first alternate and Leslie Elkins of Roswell will be the second alternate.
