Hendley edges Simson in playoff to win 66th Senior North & South Amateur

Todd Hendley wins the 66th Senior Men’s North & South Amateur Championship at Pinehurst.

VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, North Carolina – Even Todd Hendley wanted to see history made again.

Perhaps even at the expense of making it himself.

Hendley, a multiple South Carolina Senior Amateur champion who qualified for the U.S. Senior Open this year, defeated the most decorated champion in Pinehurst history, Paul Simson, on the first hole of sudden death to win the 66th Senior Men’s North & South Amateur on Wednesday on Pinehurst No. 2.

“Paul is such a great player, and I kind of hated to see him not win because you really want to see him keep going here,” Hendley said.

“But since he already has the record, I guess I don’t feel so bad,” he quipped.

Hendley, of Greenville, South Carolina, earned it, though. Despite opening the third and final round with back-to-back bogeys, Hendley recovered quickly, making birdies on the next three holes. After a par on the par-3 6th, Hendley added two more birdies on 7 and 8.

That put Hendley, who started the day two shots back of 36-hole leaders Simson and Walter Todd, right into contention. He added another birdie at 12 to finish with a 68 and a 7-under total of 209.

“Seven under in Pinehurst,” Hendley said, looking at the scoreboard. “I can’t play any better than that.”

The score tied the steady Simson, who, with eight wins lifetime in the North & South Men’s Amateur and the Senior North & South, is the all-time winningest player in Pinehurst history. Simson, though, needed a deft up-and-down from long and left of the 18th green to save par and force the playoff.

Back on 18 for the playoff, Hendley drove it long down the left side of the fairway. Simson, though, pushed his drive into the native area on the right, his ball settling in a wire grass bush. He punched out from there, but his ball came to rest against another wire grass bush in the bunker left of the green.

Simson made a beautiful shot to 8 feet from that spot, but his putt slid past the right edge of the cup. A delicate two-putt from about 50 feet gave Hendley the championship.

“This is pretty cool,” said Hendley. “To think my name is going up there with all of the great players who have won this championship, that’s pretty awesome.”

The 60th Senior Women’s North & South Amateur Championship also featured a playoff.

Mary Ann Hayward

Mary Ann Hayward, of St. Thomas, Ontario, birdied the first hole of sudden death to defeat two-time defending North & South champion – and fellow Canadian – Judith Kyrinis.

Hayward, who started the final round three shots back of Kyrinis, took the lead with a birdie on the 16th hole of Pinehurst No. 5 after Kyrinis failed to get up and down for par.

Playing the 18th hole a second time that day, Hayward made a beautiful approach shot to about 6 feet and made the putt to win the championship.

“The hole just fits my eye, and I was so happy to play it again for the playoff,” Hayward said. “I was able to curl in a little right-to-left putt. Yeah, that was pretty yummy.”

Winning at Pinehurst is special to the Canadian Golf Hall of Famer.

“This has been on the bucket list for a long time,” she said. “It’s one thing to see the history on TV, like when you watch the Opens. But to be here and experience it, it’s amazing.”

Robert Hess, of Casselberry, Florida, won the Super Senior Men’s North & South Amateur Championship with a three-day total of even-par 216, winning by four shots over Evan Long, of Charlotte.

Mimi Hoffman, of Springfield, Virginia, won the Super Senior Women’s North & South Amateur Championship by two shots over Beatriz Arenas, of Guatemala.

Isabella Fierro Makes History at Pinehurst in Winning the 115th Women’s North & South Amateur

VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, North Carolina – In the championship match of the 115th Women’s North & South Amateur, Isabella Fierro missed just one fairway on Pinehurst No. 2.

She made up for it with the best shot of the championship.

The 16-year-old Mexican phenom rode through all of the highs and lows that the game of golf can sometimes require and came out of them with a brilliant closing stretch of eight holes to beat North Carolina native Anna Redding 2&1 on Friday. Fierro is the first Mexican-born player to win the historic tournament.

“I really can’t believe this right now,” said Fierro, who is not only one of the top-ranked junior players in the world, but one of the most accomplished, and has been mentored by World Golf Hall of Famer Lorena Ochoa-Reyes. “This is my best win ever. I really have no words to express just how happy I am.”

“Qué orgullo ¡Felicidades!” Ochoa-Reyes tweeted to Fierro following the match, which translates to “What pride! Congratulations!”

In a wild match that felt like it had more lead changes than your typical Duke-Carolina game, Fierro was down after the first hole, led 2-up after the fourth hole and then found herself trailing 2-down after the eighth hole.

Fierro, though, evened the match after making a slippery 4 ½-footer for par to win the 11th hole, then took a 1-up lead after a beautiful approach on 12.

Fierro was 10-for-10 hitting fairways in regulation at that point, but her drive on 13 just tricked into the left native area, about a foot off the fairway. She was left with a testy lie under a wiregrass bush while Redding was in the middle of the fairway just 135 yards from the pin.

But after Redding misfired left of the green on her approach, Fierro could feel the pressure ease off. Trying to scoot the ball up the middle of the green, Fierro made solid contact and the ball landed softly on the front of the green, rolling pin-high to about 8 feet. She curled in the putt and found herself up 2 holes once again.

“I just knew Anna was going to put it close, and when she went left, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’” Fierro said. “Now I felt like I could just hit a soft pitching wedge to the middle of the green, and it just turned out perfectly.”

Redding made a clutch birdie from 15 feet on the par-3 15th to draw back within one, but Fierro was able to reach the front fringe of the par-5 16th in two shots and two-putt for birdie to win the hole, taking another 2-up lead at the 17th tee.

She made a par there to make Pinehurst history.

“To be the first Mexican player to win the North & South is really special to me,” Fierro said. “And I look at that wall of all the past champions, and so many of them are on the LPGA Tour right now. To think I was able to win a tournament they won before making the Tour is incredible.”

Not that Fierro isn’t accustomed to winning big tournaments. She recently won the South American Women’s Amateur by 10 shots and will travel from Pinehurst to Switzerland to play in the European Ladies Amateur Championship later in July. Fierro has also won the Mexican National Amateur and the Copa Yucatan.

The loss in the final was a tough one for Redding, the 2013 Girls’ North & South Junior Champion. From nearby Concord, Redding has been one of the North & South’s elite players of the last three years, reaching the semifinals in 2015, the quarterfinals in 2016 and the championship this year – a run that included a thrilling 1-up victory over defending champion Kristen Gillman in the quarterfinals.

“My ball-striking just wasn’t at its best today, and Isabella just played really, really well,” Redding said. “It was a great match.

“I’m really proud of myself,” Redding added, as the tears came. “I was just so close.”

The Women’s North & South Amateur is the longest consecutively running amateur championship in the United States. North & South champions are among the legends of the game, and include Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs, Peggy Kirk Bell, Hollis Stacey as well as Brandie Burton, Brittany Lang, Morgan Pressel and Yani Tseng.

As much as the North & South is a championship with a great past, it also continues to foster a great legacy. Eleven of the last 15 Amateur champions have joined the LPGA Tour, four of whom have won major championships – Pressel, Tseng and Lang, who won the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open. 2011 Women’s North & South Champion Danielle Kang won her first major championship recently at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

The Women’s North & South has drawn the top amateur women from around the country and is the longest consecutively running women’s amateur championship in the country. Its first championship was played in 1903.

Redding Avenges Defeat, Reaches Women’s North & South Final Against Fierro

After close calls in 2015 and 2016, Anna Redding has reached her first Women’s North & South Amateur final.

Anna Redding, vying to become the first North Carolina native to win North & South since 2010, will face 16-year-old Mexican phenom Isabella Fierro

Bracket

By Alex Podlogar

VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, North Carolina – Hours after winning the biggest match of her life, Anna Redding hit the greatest 5 iron of her life.

Now she is just 18 holes from history.

A year after being vanquished 7&6 in the quarterfinals by eventual champion Kristen Gillman, Redding avenged the defeat that has lingered in her mind every day since by beating Gillman in the quarterfinals of the 115th Women’s North & South Amateur on Thursday. She then followed that triumph later in the afternoon with a dramatic 2&1 victory over Gillman’s Alabama teammate Lakareber Abe to advance to the championship match against 16-year-old Mexican phenom Isabella Fierro.

“I’m trying to put it into words, but I’m just so overwhelmed,” Redding said, the joy mixed with relief evident in her voice. “I’m overcome with emotion.”

“I’m trying to put it into words, but I’m just so overwhelmed. I’m overcome with emotion.” -Anna Redding

Redding, a junior at Virginia who has been coached by Pinehurst Resort lead instructor Kelly Mitchum, won the 2013 Girls North & South Junior. Playing her fourth Women’s North & South Amateur, Redding reached the semifinals in 2015 before the quarterfinal loss to Gillman in 2016.

“Last year was no contest,” Redding said of the loss. “(Kristen) just wailed on me.”

This time was different. After a birdie on the 3rd hole, Redding was 2-up, only for Gillman to square the match with a par on the 9th. Though Redding led 1-up after 14, Gillman evened the match again with a birdie on 15.

But Redding hit a deft approach shot from the right native area on 18, leaving herself about 25 feet for birdie. Gillman, who missed the fairway left, could only advance her ball a few yards. A two-putt par clinched the win for Redding, who emphatically embraced her mother after the match.

“It felt like redemption,” Redding said. “Kristen’s phenomenal, but finally I was able to push her and have the kind of match I had hoped to have one day against her.”

Hours later in the semifinal, however, Redding found herself in another tense match with Abe. Redding was 1-down after 11, but following about a 45-minute rain delay, Redding drained a birdie putt on 12 to even the match. Redding had good looks again at 13 and 14 that just wouldn’t fall, but made birdie at 15 to take a 1-up lead.

She found the fairway on the par-5 16th, and from 189 yards, took 5 iron.

“That was the best 5 iron I’ve ever hit in my life,” she said. “I’ve hit some good 5 irons, but that one was great.”

The approach nestled 12 feet left of the hole and Redding made the putt, closing out Abe to advance to the championship, where Redding will try to become the first North Carolina native to win the Women’s North & South Amateur since Cydney Clanton in 2010. Like Clanton, Redding is also from Concord.

Isabella Fierro won the South American Women’s Amateur in January.

There Redding will face Fierro, one of the top-ranked junior players in the world. Fierro, who won the South American Women’s Amateur in January to qualify for the European Ladies’ Amateur Championship next week in Sweden, has been mentored by Lorena Ochoa, the first Mexican golfer to be enshrined in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Just 16, Fierro has cruised through much of match play, with wins of 6&5 and 5&4. She beat Duke’s Sandy Choi 2-up in the semifinals to advance to the final.

“The U.S. Women’s Open, the North & South, Michelle Wie – to walk where all these players in history have walked is really special,” Fierro said. “For me to be the first Mexican in the finals means so much to me.”

“The U.S. Women’s Open, the North & South, Michelle Wie – to walk where all these players in history have walked is really special. For me to be the first Mexican in the finals means so much to me.” -Isabella Fierro

It’s been a whirlwind experience in Pinehurst for Fierro. When her family landed in Raleigh last weekend, Fierro’s clubs didn’t make it. Twelve hours later they were delivered to her. There was only one problem.

“When I unpacked them, my driver was broken in two,” she said.

Scrambling to find another driver, Fierro finally settled on the same model, though the shaft was far heavier than her original.

Isabella Fierro

“I thought it would a tough adjustment, but it hasn’t made too much of a difference,” Fierro said. “For a while I thought I might have to hit 3-wood for the week, but it’s working for me.

“It might be time for a change,” she quipped.

The championship match will be played at 7 a.m. on Friday on Pinehurst No. 2. Spectators are welcome to follow the match and admission is free.

The Women’s North & South Amateur is the longest consecutively running amateur championship in the United States. North & South champions are among the legends of the game: Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs, Peggy Kirk Bell, Hollis Stacey as well as Brandie Burton, Brittany Lang, Morgan Pressel and Yani Tseng.

With a Little Help From Payne, Defending Champ Gillman Marches into North & South Quarterfinals

Bracket

By Alex Podlogar

VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, North Carolina – Not only can Kristen Gillman rely on her own winning experience on Pinehurst No. 2, she can also follow the advice of someone else who knows a thing or two about Donald Ross’ masterpiece.

Payne Stewart.

Gillman, the defending Women’s North & South Champion, cruised through two matches on a long, hot and humid Wednesday in the North Carolina sandhills to move two steps closer to becoming the first player to win back-to-back North & South Amateurs since Beth Bauer pulled it off in 1998-99. With wins of 7&6 in the Round of 32 and 3&2 – punctuated by a 14-foot birdie on 16 – Gillman advances to the quarterfinals of the 115th playing of the historic amateur event.

“It’s been really cool so far,” said Gillman, who was the medalist following Tuesday’s round and is a past U.S. Women’s Amateur champion. “I’m enjoying it right now, and it’s definitely great to be back in Pinehurst.”

It was on No. 2 in 1999 when Stewart famously made a dramatic 15-foot par putt to beat Phil Mickelson by one shot and win the U.S. Open. At the time, Stewart was coached by Chuck Cook, who now also coaches Gillman, who was an All-American in her freshman season at Alabama.

And while Gillman certainly can remember her march to the 2016 Women’s North & South Amateur title, she’s also had a little extra help, thanks to Cook.

“He showed me Payne’s yardage book from the 1999 U.S. Open,” said Gillman, of Austin, Texas. “And it’s amazing to look at. He had marked all of these spots on where it was best to be, but even better, he marked spots where you absolutely didn’t want to be, and had those areas scratched out. There’s a lot of history in that book, but it’s helpful, too.”

Anna Redding

Gillman may have to lean on the book more if she’s to navigate a very difficult half of the bracket. Her next match is against a determined Anna Redding, who probably boasts the most experience at Pinehurst. The 2013 Girls’ North & South Junior champion, Redding, a junior at Virginia, is playing in her fourth Women’s North & South and finds herself making another deep run in a tournament that means so much to her.

“Since I won the Junior, winning the Women’s North & South makes it mean a little extra than just the title of the Women’s North & South,” said Redding, who is from nearby Concord. “There’s just so much incredible history here and to make my mark once…I’m just trying to do it again. To have my name on that wall in the building is…well, it would mean a lot.”

Redding rolled to a 5&4 win in her morning match, but struggled to find her game in the afternoon against Stephanie Lau. But Lau struggled as well, allowing Redding to grind her way to a 2-up lead through 9 despite shooting 39.

But Redding closed well, making birdie at 16 and then draining a 30-foot putt on 17 to close out the match.

It was a finish that Redding needed as she looks ahead to a quarterfinal rematch with Gillman, who beat Redding 7&6 in the same round in 2016.

Redding admitted being excited about a second chance against Gillman.

“I’ve been kind of waiting and ready for it,” she said. “I’m really excited to play her again. We’ve both got another year under our belts, and I’m excited about the golfer I’ve become over this past year. So I’m actually looking forward to it, whatever the outcome. I’m ready to play her again.”

Beth Wu

Possibly looming in the semifinals could be 2015 Women’s North & South Runner-up Beth Wu, who rallied from 3-down through 8 holes in her Round of 16 match Southern Cal’s Allisen Corpuz. Wu came alive just in time, making birdies at 9, 10, 11 and 12 to take control of the match. A beautiful pitch to 2 feet on 16 led to another birdie to keep a 1-up lead, and Wu had her birdie conceded on 17 after a Corpuz bogey.

“I had a mental shift; I started the match as a bit of a hothead,” Wu, of Diamond Bar, California, admitted. “I had to take a breath and just remember the things I learned at school from my coaches and psychologists. It was good to come back like that.”

Wu will face Gillman’s Alabama teammate Lakareber Abe in the quarterfinals while Julienne Soo, who upset No. 2 seed Jaclyn Lee in the Round of 16, will take on Isabella Fierro. Aneka Seumanutafa, who won the 2017 Girls North & South Junior just last week, also advanced to the quarterfinals and will face Duke’s Sandy Choi.

The Women’s North & South Amateur is the longest consecutively running amateur championship in the United States. North & South champions are among the legends of the game: Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs, Peggy Kirk Bell, Hollis Stacey as well as Brandie Burton, Brittany Lang, Morgan Pressel and Yani Tseng.

As much as the North & South is a championship with a great past, it also continues to foster a great legacy. Eleven of the last 15 Amateur champions have joined the LPGA Tour, four of whom have won major championships – Pressel, Tseng and Lang, who won the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open. 2011 Women’s North & South Champion Danielle Kang won her first major championship recently at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
