Wichita, KS – Denise Desilet of Wichita continued her consecutive victory streak after a 3-hole playoff with Susan DeVoe of Overland Park at Wichita Country Club.  Down two at the start of round two, Desilet was not ready to let the trophy go and held on to claim her seventh consecutive Kansas Women’s Senior Championship and her eleventh championship title.  Opening with an even par 36 on the front to DeVoe’s 40, Desilet opened a two-shot lead.  DeVoe responded with a 36 on the back nine to force the playoff.  Both players made pars on the first two playoff holes before Desilet finally edged out the victory with a par on number three.

There was spectacular play in every division of the championship.  Megan Dupy of Salina had a hard-fought battle with Jordan Patterson of Hays to claim the first-ever Mid-Amateur Championship.  Dupy started the day one shot behind first round leader Patterson after an opening 80.  Steady play in round two with a 73 edged Patterson by one stroke.  The Mid-Am Division had particularly strong play with four players carding sub-80 rounds on a very difficult WCC golf course.

Judy Morris of Derby had the come-back round of the day to win the Super Senior Gross title by two shots over first round leader Phyllis Fast.  Morris opened the day with a 38 on the front nine in spite of two double bogeys.  Birdies on 2, 4 and 8 closed the gap, and steady play on the back nine sealed the championship title.
