DANA POINT, CA (September 15, 2022) – The Women’s Division season comes to an end as the Final Round of the Southern California PGA Women’s Section Championship concluded today at Monarch Beach Golf Links.
Nikki Prichard of Arrowood Golf Course is the 2022 Women’s Section Champion after posting a two-day total of four-over par, 144, to win her first Championship title by a single stroke.
Coming into the final round two-shots off the lead, Prichard knew that she had some work to do to catch the four-time Champion Lehua Wise. After making the turn in the final round, Prichard’s eyes were firmly set on the prize and it all culminated with her birdie on the final hole of the Championship to claim victory!
After the awards presentation, Nikki said, “I’m feeling very happy! It was a fun couple days with some great players and Monarch was in beautiful shape. I think my biggest takeaway was staying in the moment, and I can say that this is a big accomplishment for me. I’m very thankful to the SCPGA for hosting a great Championship for the Women’s Division.”
Winning the SCPGA Women’s Section Championship Senior Division was Marianne Huning of Bel-Air Country Club, with a two-day total of 19-over par, 159.
