VanArragon becomes youngest Women's State Open Winner
Updated: Aug 12
Kathryn VanArragon (Bunker Hills GC) has made history yet again as the youngest winner in the 20 year history of the Minnesota Women's State Open, held August 10-11, 2020 at The Jewel Golf Course in Lake City, Minnesota.
VanArragon, who finished Round 1 in seventh place at +2, had a little struggle on the front 9, shooting 39, but it came together for her on the back with two birdies and only one bogey for 34. She finished both rounds with a 73, for a two day score 146 (+4).
Round 1 leader Taylor Ledwein (New Prauge GC), ran into some problems on the back 9, including 2 lost balls and multiple bogies. Ledwein ultimately two-putted the 18th hole to finish with a triple-bogey. She would end up shooting a two-day score 70-77-147 to finish +5.
Lisa Grimes (Alexandria GC) was the low professional, finishing tied for third place. Grimes finished at +6, carding 72-76-148.
