Greenwich's McElvoy rallies to win state Women's Amateur crown

NEWINGTON >> Catherine McEvoy sat in a golf cart at Indian Hill Country Club, still in shock just a handful of minutes after winning the State Women’s Amateur championship Thursday afternoon.

Among those coming up to congratulate the senior-to-be at Greenwich High School was Pat O’Sullivan Lucey, arguably the state’s best female amateur golfer ever. The member at Race Brook Country Club in Orange won the first three Women’s Amateur championships.

In celebrating the golden anniversary of the Amateur, Lucey was on hand to greet players coming in. Presenting McEvoy with the championship trophy was Lida Kinnicut Tingley, the winner of a record eight Amateur crowns. The tournament also honored Betty Boyko, a long-time member at Indian Hill CC, the first president of this championship and was elected into the Connecticut Golf Hall of Fame in December. 

So McEvoy, 17, will forever be woven into the history of this tournament and arguably its most special year.
“I’m kind of in shock. It doesn’t feel like it actually happened,” McEvoy said. ”A couple of weeks ago, I was in a slump and not playing well. This week, I got my game back together.”
