WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Defending Texas-Oklahoma Junior girls' open champion Shaebug Scarberry rallied after going +5 in her first 10 holes of the day to post a 1-over 72 and win her 2nd-straight T-O championship Wednesday at the Wichita Falls Country Club!
Scarberry, a University of Tulsa commit, chased down playing partner Summer Marshall, who led by 2 with 4 holes to play. Scarberry got her first birdie of the day on number 12, before a nice up-and-down to save par on #14, then birdied 15, 16 and 18 for the win.
Marshall kept it tied going to 18 with a clutch par putt on the 17th green, but her tee shot on 18 was in the trees on the right, and she couldn't recover, finishing with a double-bogey to finish second, 3 shots behind Scarberry.
The two players hail from only about 15 miles apart, with Scarberry living in Purcell, Oklahoma and Marshall residing in Norman.
Wichita Falls' Savanah Snyder shot her best round of the week on Wednesday, a 74 to finish 7th.
