Whaley wins Connecticut Women's Amateur

Kelly Whaley shot an even-par 72 to win the 46th Connecticut Women's Amateur by 1 shot over Ellie Dutch at Timberlin Golf Club.
Kelly is the youngest daughter of Suzy Whaley, the teaching pro at TPC River Highlands, home to the Travelers Championship. The elder Whaley qualified for the 2003 Travelers, then known as the Greater Hartford Open.
Dutch, a first-round co-leader, three-putted the final hole for a bogey to miss out on a sudden-death playoff. She shot 76. Mia Landegren, the other first-round leader, skied to a 78.
Whaley is the second-youngest winner of the Amateur behind Liz Janangelo, who won it five times.
