Garrett wins Kerr Lake Ladies Invitational

Jun. 10, 2013 @ 09:14 PM

Hilda Garrett gave all the credit to God — and a new driver.

Garrett snapped Regina Ellis’ string of three consecutive Kerr Lake Country Club Ladies Invitational titles by winning the annual event Saturday.

“I think God did this,” said Garrett. “I don’t know how I did.”

Garrett shot a 78. The veteran golfer said she had recently been shooting in the high 80s and low 90s. A new driver may have aided in the improved score, she said.

“Just really was an amazing score as low as it was,” said Garrett.

Friday night’s rain made for wet play and little roll Saturday, but the sun was out, making for a nice day.

“It was just a really nice day,” Garrett said. “When you’re playing with nice folks, you enjoy yourself.”
