Close Call

U.S. Women's Senior Am runner-up edges Denver's Roh in opening match at U.S. Women's Mid-Am

by Gary Baines - 11/13/2017

Susie Roh (pictured) of Denver never led during her round-of-64 match in the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur, but that doesn't mean it wasn't close on Monday in Houston.

The former pro, competing in the national Women's Mid-Am for the second straight year, fell 1 up to Terrill Samuel of Canada, the runner-up in this year's U.S. Senior Women's Amateur.

Roh was 2 down after six, but won two of the next three holes to square the match after nine. Samuel then claimed the next two with birdies before Roh narrowed the gap to 1 down with a par victory on No. 12. From there, the two halved the final six holes -- five with pars and No. 17 with bogeys.

Roh finished 4 over par for Monday's round, while Samuel was 2 over.

Originally set for early October at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Fla., the U.S. Women's Mid-Am had its dates and site changed due to extensive damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The championship is limited to players 25 and older.

Here are the scores for all the Coloradans who competed in Houston:

Terrill Samuel, Canada, def. Susie Roh, Denver, 1 up
