Cathy Johnston-Forbes fired a 1-under-par 71 to edge Leta Lindley by one shot and claim the $6,000 winner’s share of the $24,050 purse up for grabs in the impromptu one-day tournament organized by former LPGA star and Moss Creek resident Rosie Jones, who tied for third with a 1-over 73.
It was the first competitive action for the players on the LPGA’s senior tour since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their first step in preparation for the U.S. Senior Women’s Open and Senior LPGA Championship later this summer.
“It’s very nice to be back out here competing, and to get a win is just the cherry on top,” Johnston-Forbes said. “It’s been about a year and a half since we’ve hit shots in front of anybody. I was nervous on the first tee. I wasn’t as nervous coming in on 18 as I thought I would be, probably because I was hitting it well, but it was exciting.”
