To say Shelly Stouffer was looking forward to her singles match with Oregon’s Lara Tennant at the PNGA Lamey Cup would be something of an understatement.
Quite simply, it was a match Stouffer had wanted since learning she would be a part of Team British Columbia at the 15th playing of the Lamey Cup at Bellingham Golf & Country Club.
On Thursday, Stouffer got her wish and delivered in a big way, defeating Tennant 4&3 in cool, wet conditions. “She’s the three-time reigning U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur champion,” Stouffer said after her win. “Why wouldn’t you want to play her?”
