McCALL, Idaho - Karen Darrington is a well-known name around the Idaho golf community, and for good reason. The winner of multiple state championships adds another trophy to her collection with a win at the 2018 Idaho Women’s Senior Amateur at Jug Mountain Ranch in McCall, ID.
Boise’s Darrington started in impressive fashion with an opening round 73 (1-over) in chilly conditions. The front nine included three birdies and four bogeys, but a clean one birdie and one bogey back nine capped the day. Sheryl Scott (Boise) lurked one stroke behind with a 74.
In the final round, Darrington had a less than ideal start, but the competition didn’t fare much better. A back nine reminiscent of the first round would likely seal the championship, and that’s exactly what occurred. Another even par back nine gave Darrington a comfortable victory - three strokes ahead of Scott.
Karen successfully defended her 2017 Women's Senior Amateur title. She is also a six-time winner of the Idaho Women's Amateur and serves on the IGA Board of Directors.
Shawna Ianson (Boise) took home 1st net while Kelly Loeb (Eagle) took home 2nd net.
