Fairwinds’ Stouffer takes second in province

Nanoose Bay’s Shelly Stouffer gave it all she had at the B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur in Duncan this past weekend, but came up just short.

Nanoose Bay’s Shelly Stouffer gave it all she had at the B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur in Duncan this past weekend, but came up just short in the final round.

Port Alberni’s Christina Spence Proteau was able to hang on to win the tournament for the fifth time, finishing the tournament at plus-seven, one stroke better than Stouffer.

On the final day, Stouffer started out the round six strokes back of Proteau.

Stouffer proceeded to shoot a round of 68 (-4) — the first round under par at the tournament — good enough to earn second place.

She then birdied four of the last five holes in the round but came up just short.

Despite coming up short, Stouffer was happy with the round she had to close out the tournament.

“I was just thinking I had to hit good shots, just keep focused on what I was doing, pick my targets and make my putts,” said Stouffer.

“I guess I putted pretty well. I didn’t miss many short ones.”
