Reigning WSGA Mid-Amateur Champion Susan West of Tuscaloosa has had an outstanding 2018 and will be looking to cap it off by adding a Senior Championship to her resume. West’s summer got off to a hot start as she bested an outstanding field in June at her home course, NorthRiver Yacht Club, to claim the Southern Mid-Amateur.
West competed in the USGA Senior Championship this past week in Florida where she advanced to the match play portion of the event. She had a tough draw in the Round of 64 falling to Sue Wooster of Australia in 19 holes. Wooster ended up making it to the championship finals before losing to Champion Lara Tennant.
West also claimed a T4 finish in August at the 61st North and South Senior Championship at the famed Pinehurst Resort.
Also on West’s resume this summer was a spot in the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship at historic Chicago Golf Club.
