Jill McGill wins U.S. Senior Women's Open
(Kettering, Ohio - August 28, 2022) - Jill McGill knows about disappointment in the final round of a USGA championship, and now she’s revisited the elation of victory. With the South Course at NCR Country Club at its brilliant and challenging best, McGill closed with an even-par 73 on a day when no one broke par to win the U.S. Senior Women’s Open by one stroke over Leta Lindley at 3-under-par 289 in her first year of eligibility for the championship.
“That sounds amazing,” McGill said when introduced as the champion. “I love the USGA. I've loved it ever since I got spanked in my very first Junior Girls by Brandie Burton. That was a welcome to competitive golf.”
McGill, who won the 1993 U.S. Women’s Amateur and the 1994 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links, joins Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, JoAnne Carner and Carol Semple Thompson as the only players to win three different USGA championships. The triumph also earned her an exemption into next year’s U.S. Women’s Open Presented by ProMedica at Pebble Beach.
