Pat Brogden set the women's course record at Wilson Country Club in winning the North Carolina Senior Women's Amateur for the fourth time.

WILSON, N.C. (April 19, 2017) -- Pat Brogden of Garner won her fourth Carolinas Golf Association North Carolina Senior Women’s Amateur on Wednesday, and she did so in record-setting fashion.

The 2016 runner-up parlayed four birdies into a tournament-low 4-under 68 to set a championship scoring record at 2-under 142. That gave Brogden a 14-shot margin over runner-up Patty Moore of Charlotte, who held the previous scoring record of 143.

“Sixty-eight was not on my mind this morning," said the 62-year-old Brogden. "But it certainly was fun!"

Beginning the final round with a two shot lead over Angela Stewart of Greenville, Brogden made three birdies on the outward nine in a bogey-free round. She held steady with pars on the back nine, making a handful of par-saving putts over 4 feet in length. After converting one such putt on the penultimate hole, Brogden let loose a volley of fist pumps.

"It was important to me to avoid bogey all day," said Brogden, who also set the women's course record at Wilson Country Club. Only missing three greens on Wednesday, she also managed to avoid three-putting for the entire championship. Her 14-stroke winning margin is another championship record.

Brogden and Moore are now tied for most NC Senior Women’s Amateur Championship victories with four.

Brogden had not won the championship since 2012. In recent years, she battled injuries which kept her out of competition.

"I've always respected this tournament," Brogden said, now holding seven overall CGA titles. "My goal is always to win it if I play."

2005 champion Dianne Yelovich of Pinehurst, won both the Carolinas Division and low Super Senior award (65+) with a two-day total of 158. The Carolinas Division plays a shorter course.
