A week after winning her third straight B.C. title, reigning Canadian Senior Women’s champion Shelly Stouffer of Nanoose Bay clinched the PNGA Senior Women’s Championship at the Suncadia resort east of Seattle.
BC Golf reported Stouffer won the 54-hole event by eight shots, finishing the tournament in style by eagling the 18th hole at Suncadia’s Prospector Course.
The member of the Fairwinds Golf Club in Nanoose Bay started the final round with a four-shot lead and had doubled it by the time her day was done.
Loree McKay of Portland finished second with Jackie Little of Procter, B.C. just three shots back in third place.
The 52-year-old Stouffer heads to Calgary next for the Glencoe Invitational.
Stouffer is also gearing up for three big events this summer.
She will see action at the U.S. Senior Amateur, where she made it all the way to the semifinals last summer, in Anchorage, Alaska, in late July. She is also exempt for the U.S. Senior Women’s Open, which goes Aug. 22-25 in Dayton, Ohio. And she’ll defend her Canadian Senior Women’s title the following week in Headingly, Man.
