Minnesotan Grimes Wins Second PGA Women's Stroke Play Championship
February 20, 2020
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Despite a two-putt for bogey on the final hole of the 2020 PGA Women’s Stroke Play Championship Tuesday, Minnesotan Lisa Grimes carded a 1-under 71 at PGA Golf Club to earn her second championship in three years, edging Colorado’s Sherry Andonian by one stroke at 4-under 212.
“At my age, any win is great,” said Grimes, currently the PGA Director of Instruction at Alexandria Golf Club. “I don’t care if it’s a one-day pro-am or something like this. It’s always nice to win. But I don’t think about age. It’s not a factor to me.”
At 59-years-old, Grimes was the second oldest player in the field this week, but with her win Tuesday, earned a spot in the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship June 25-28 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, Pa., as well as a first-place check of $2,100.
Grimes fired an opening-round 72 Sunday before taking a two-stroke lead over Andonian following a round of 3-under 69 during Monday’s second round, fending off Andonian’s tournament-low round of 67 during the final round Tuesday.
