Bears' Furnish Captures Iowa Women's Amateur Golf Title
July 31, 2013
Missouri State sophomore Megan Furnish captured the Iowa Women's Amateur Golf Championship on Wednesday (July 31) in Mason City, Iowa.
The Cedar Rapids native posted 80-73-76--229 in three trips around the par 72, 5800-yard Mason City Country Club to edge Alex Zenor, also of Cedar Rapids, by two shots.
Tied for the lead entering the final round, Furnish started her day with a double bogey on the first hole, but quickly rebounded with a birdie at the second and shared the lead at the turn with Amanda Braun of Cedar Falls. She opened the back nine with a birdie at 10 before recording bogeys at 12, 13 and 14, but steadied herself down the stretch with pars on the last four holes.
As a freshman last season with the Bears, Furnish posted an 82.1 scoring average.
