Amateur Mikayla Dubnik of Murrayville lead wire-to-wire to claim the 29th edition of the Georgia Women’s Open Presented by Mizuno with a two-stroke victory over fellow amateur Kate Song of Alpharetta at Bear’s Best Atlanta in Suwanee.
Dubnik, a rising junior on the Mercer University golf team fired a 2-under par 70 on Monday to lead several by one-shot heading into the final round Tuesday. The tournament quickly became a two-horse race with Dubnik and former fellow teammate at Mercer Song who has transferred to finish her remaining two years at the University of Georgia. With a birdie on 15, Dubnik had opened a three-shot lead and looking to cruise to victory. Song had short birdie putts on 17 and 18 but couldn’t connect either of them to put the pressure on Dubnik who finished at 6-under par 138 for the Championship.
Kendall Wright of Berkeley Lake finished in solo third at 2-over par 146 to claim Low Professional honors and the $2,300 first place check. Rounding out the top 5 was a trio at 4-over par 148 including PGA Professional Kayla Jones of Bobby Jones Golf Course, mini tour professional Melissa Siviter of Alpharetta and amateur Makena Dubois of Canton.
In the Senior Division, professional Caroline Blaylock of Cedartown and amateur Kristyl Sunderman of McDonough tied at even-par 144 to share the crown.
