Ladies Wrap Up Play During Day 1 of the 2022 Kansas Women’s Amateur Championship

TOPEKA, KS – Day 1 of the Kansas Women’s Amateur has ended with the completion of Rounds 1 & 2, hosted at The Topeka Country Club in Topeka, KS Monday evening. The event is sponsored by Mommy’s Helper.

The 2022 Kansas Women’s Amateur has kicked off at The Topeka Country Club, a golf course with a rich history of hosting Kansas Championships. The field of 56 is filled with the top players in the state, fighting for the Women’s Amateur trophy in our 54-hole championship. With few clouds in the sky and the sun shining all over, the course was in perfect shape, playing at 6,029 yards. The tree-lined golf course has the feel of an old-style country club, with narrow fairways and slick greens, adding a challenge to the championship.

As the wind started to pick up later in the evening, players faced more challenges towards the end of the round, except for Emerie Schartz and Megan Whittaker, who both shot under-par rounds today. Emerie shot a 70 in Round 1 with five birdies and two bogies, and a 76 in Round 2 to put her at even par through Day 1. Megan Whittaker finished Round 1 with a 77, but turned on the fire in Round 2 with five birdies and two bogies, ending with a score of 70 and putting her at 1 over par through Day 1.

The final round of the Kansas Women’s Amateur Championship continues tomorrow as Emerie Schartz and Megan Whittaker battle to secure the win. With multiple scores just above par, the race will be tight as the first group of ladies tee off at 7:30 a.m. CT. Live scoring will be posted throughout the day, and available on our website.
