JONESBOROUGH — Blackthorn Club proved to be a thorny proposition during Monday’s stroke-play qualifying for the 71st annual Tennessee Women’s Amateur championship.
Of the 66 players who teed it up, only 15 broke 80. The cut for the championship flight came at 83.
Jefferson City’s Kendall Martindale , the 2009 women’s state amateur champion, was the lone player to break par. Martindale fired a sizzling 3-under 33 on the front nine and added a 37 on the inward nine for a solid 2-under 70.
Chattanooga’s Jordan Britt came in at even-par 72 and Dandridge’s Kristin Price closed with a 75. Tied for fourth in the qualifying were Kingsport’s Breanna White and Columbia’s Olivia Love at 76.
