Playing the best golf of her career, the University of Virginia rising senior from Concord, North Carolina won the Carolinas Women’s Match Play yesterday at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh - but it wasn't easy. After 18 holes of the final match, it took Redding 4 more playoff holes to defeat Jessica Spicer of Bahama, North Carolina and bring home the trophy. She now has a second Carolinas Golf Association title having won the Carolinas Women’s Amatuer in the beginning of June. "This is so exciting," Redding said. "Being the medalist in stroke play was awesome. Shooting 66 was my personal best, so after that, I was feeling really excited, and I love match play." Stroke Play is a format that counts the total number of shots taken during an 18-hole round. The person with the lowest total number of shots taken after 2 rounds is declared the Medalist. Only players with the lowest total 2-day scores make the cut and advance to match play. The remaining players are then ranked and paired against each other based on their previous finish. “It was a great win to end my summer and now to get ready for my last season at UVA!”
Redding has a history of success. She recently made her 4th consecutive appearance in the Quarter Finals of the Women's North & South Amateur held at the Pinehurst Resort and Country Club.
The CGA annually conducts 48 championships and five team match competitions for men, women, juniors, and seniors. It also runs over 150 One-Day events as well as qualifying for USGA national championships.
