Trish Johnson hangs on to claim inaugural LPGA Legends Cup

Updated: July 2, 2018

Trish Johnson made it interesting but she played well down the stretch to win the inaugural Suquamish Clearwater Casino Legends Cup at White Horse Golf Club in Kingston.

Johnson, from England, shot a two-round total of 8-under-par 136. She made it interesting in the final round when she hit a shot from behind a tree stump and the ball found the green. Instead of a big number, she took a par and went on to victory.

The tournament had plenty of Northwest flavor too as Big Mama Joanne Gundersen Carner too part and finished 22nd at 16 over and Wendy Ward, who lives on a ranch in Edwall, Wash. finished 10th in her LPGA Legends debut. Her husband Nate Hair, one of the top amateurs in the NW, was her caddy.
