Cummings Leads After Round One 

THE WOMANS MAINE AMATEUR GOLF TOURNAMENT BEGAN MONDAY. DEFENDING CHAMP KRISTEN KANNEGIESER WAS A LATE SCRATCH. THAT PUTS THE PAGE SISTERS ON THE FAVORITES LIST….. PENNIE CUMMINGS AND MARTHA WHITE.

THEN THERE IS ALEXA RANCOURT IS JUST 17 YEARS OLD, BUT HAS THE LOWEST HANDICAP IN THE FIELD.

THE PORTLAND NATIVE, WHO HAS TRAINED THE LAST THREE YEARS AT A GOLF ACADEMY IN FLORIDA WAS PARED WITH MARTHA WHITE WHO HAS WON MORE OF THESE EVENTS THAT ANYONE ELSE.

…..

THE 15th HOLE WAS THE BEST OF THE DAY FOR RANCOURT. HER PUTT ON 15 WAS JUST STRONG ENOUGH FOR AN EAGLE. RANCOURT WITH A 74MONDAY AND THAT’S TWO SHOTS OFF THE PACE AT BANGOR MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSE.

…..

MARTHA WHITE IS STILL QUITE THE COMPETITOR. HER TEE SHOT ON 16 WAS RIGHT ON LINE.

SHE STILL HAD ABOUT A 25 FOOT PUTT FOR THE BIRD AND HIT IT PRETTY WELL, BUT IT LIPPED OUT.

SHE SETTLED FOR A 79.

…..

WHITES SISTER PENNIE CUMMINGS HAS ALSO WON THIS MANY TIMES, HER LAST IN ’06…. AND SHE HAS A TWO SHOT LEAD AFTER ROUND ONE WITH A 72.

…..

ANOTHER TEENAGER WHITNEY HAND ALSO IN THE THICK OF THINGS. HAND IN 5th PLACE WITH AN 80. LIZ COFFIN SHOT A 79.
