Georgia’s Zamora notches second title of fall
Monday, October 5, 2009
Georgia sophomore Marta Silva Zamora notched her fourth career title, and second of the 2009-10 season, on Monday en route to leading the ninth-ranked Bulldogs to a victory at the soggy Eat A Peach Collegiate.
Zamora posted back-to-back 2-under 70s to finish at 4-under 140 at Idle Hour Country Club in Macon, Ga. Furman’s Stefanie Kenoyer (71) was second at 142.
“Whenever it’s bad weather, I think I concentrate a little more because you know you have to,” Zamora said. “I was putting really good today, maybe because of that. I’m excited. I’ve been hitting the ball really good.”
Zamora won the UNLV Spring Invitational and the SEC Championships last spring and captured medalist honors at the Duramed Cougar Classic last month. She has won four of Georgia’s past 10 tournaments.
Georgia closed with a 13-over 301 to finish at 23-over 599. The Bulldogs thought the score tied them with Florida State, but after tournament officials double-checked scorecards, they found an FSU player signed her card for a stroke higher than she actually shot.
The Seminoles, who shot 24-over 312 in the final round, ended the event at 24-over 600, a shot behind Georgia and Furman (300). Coastal Carolina (309) was fourth.
