Plourde Wins Janet Drouin Memorial

Aug 14, 2018

Bailey Plourde, fresh off her win at last month's Maine Women's Amateur, added to her trophy case this week with a win at Natanis GC (Arrowhead) at the 2018 Janet Drouin Memorial Tournament. After an opening round of even-par 72, Plourde kept up her solid form with a second round of 70 (-2) to become the first player in this event to ever finish under par. She bested runner-up Mia Hornberger by 11 shots to win both the overall championship and the Junior flight. Vicki Lindquist, playing at her home course at Natanis, won the Net championship with a two round total of 133 (-11).

The Janet Drouin Memorial began in 2009 as a one-day event to raise funds in memory of Janet Drouin, a beloved volunteer, historian, statistician, and scorer for the WMSGA and a strong supporter of junior golf. In 2013, the event became the Janet Drouin Memorial Open Championship, a two-day event to raise money for the Janet Drouin Memorial Fund.

For immediate release: August 13, 2018               

VASSALBORO – Bailey Plourde (Samoset Resort GC) is fresh off of her first Maine Women’s Amateur win last month at Rockland GC, and is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Right on her heels and only two strokes behind is Mia Hornberger (Turner Highlands CC), who opened with a 74. Hornberger won the Girls 13-15 flight at the Maine Junior Championship at Brunswick GC just two weeks ago and kept up her solid play today at Natanis. Joining Plourde and Hornberger in the final pairing tomorrow is Liz Coffin (Bangor Municipal GC), who shot an opening 77.

Tomorrow’s second round will begin at 7:30 am. In addition to the overall champion, prizes will be given tomorrow for the overall low net score, low junior, and to the top two scorers both gross and net in all four flights.
