Part-time Colorado resident Stacy in 27th place at first U.S. Senior Women’s Open; other locals narrowly miss cut
by Gary Baines
Part-time Colorado resident Hollis Stacy is in her element. She’s competing this week against many of the same players she has for decades. And she wasn’t about to shortchange herself by missing the cut in the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open.
Stacy, a World Golf Hall of Famer who has won three U.S. Women’s Opens and six USGA championships overall, survived the 36-hole cut on Friday and moved into 27th place after Saturday’s third round at Chicago Golf Club, leaving her in the middle of the pack for the 55 players who made the cut.
So far, she’s gone 77-76-77, leaving her at 11-over-par 230, 22 strokes behind leader Laura Davies, a fellow World Golf Hall of Famer.
On Saturday, Stacy made three birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey in round 3.
The other Coloradans — full-time or part-time — in the field missed the cut to the low 50 and ties on Friday evening. But it wasn’t by much.
Part-time Gunnison resident Marilyn Hardy (159) missed advancing by one, and Centennial residents Janet Moore and Sherry Andonian Smith (both 161) by three.
Here are the scores for all the Coloradans in the starting field for the U.S. Senior Women’s Open:
27. Part-time Lakewood resident Hollis Stacy 77-76-77–230
Missed 36-Hole Cut
Part-time Gunnison resident Marilyn Hardy 82-77–159
