The Kansas City Women’s Match Play presented by Granite Garage Floors was held this week at Hillcrest Golf Course.

Aristelle Acuff, a graduate student on the Georgia State Women’s Golf Team, was victorious at the Kansas City Women’s Match Play on Wednesday. Acuff who was the two seed, defeated Abby Glynn the one seed 3&2 in the final match.

Acuff, who shot 74 in the stroke-play qualifier said “the results from the stroke-play qualifying gave me a lot of confidence and momentum heading into match play. There were a lot of good players in the field, I thought I had put myself in a solid position to go all the way.”

Going into her final round she knew it would be a tough match. Glynn and Acuff were former teammates at Kansas University, “Abby is a great golfer and we have a very similar golf game. I just wanted to keep it simple and stay in the moment,” Acuff noted.

On the 7th hole, a par-three, Acuff hit a solid tee shot into the green and stuck it to about three feet. Without missing a beat, Glynn followed it up by hitting her tee shot a similar distance from the hole. “I think that sums up the type of golf that was played today,” Acuff said, “It was a blast getting to play against Abby. I got this one, but I know Abby will be waiting for the next one!”

In the Silver Bracket, Sam Maceli defeated Faith Hedges 3&2.
