NOBLESVILLE, Ind. Stroke-play medalist ..., 11 Sept 2014 [cached]
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. Stroke-play medalist Margaret Shirley never trailed en route to a 5-and-3 win over defending champion Julia Potter in the 2014 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship, conducted at the 6,117-yard, par-72 Harbour Trees Golf Club.
"It just doesn't feel real right now," said Shirley, who was runner-up to Potter in 2013.
Shirley, 28, of Atlanta, joins Carol Semple Thompson (1997), Ellen Port (2000) and Potter (2013) as the only stroke-play medalists to take the championship title.
Shirley struck first, knocking her hybrid approach at the par-4 first hole to 12 feet and holing the birdie.
"That putt kind of got me going for the rest of the round," said Shirley, a director of Rules and competitions for Atlanta Junior Golf.
Shirley extended her advantage to 2 up with a two-putt par at No. 3.
Interview Transcript: Margaret Shirley
Shirley drained a 25-foot birdie to regain her 2-up advantage and start her championship charge.
"That's actually the first time I've hit that green all week," said Shirley, who graduated from Auburn University in 2008. "I was just happy to be on that green. And that putt was dead center."
On the inward nine, Shirley kept putting pressure on her opponent. Potter's tee shot at No. 10 flew into the right rough, and her second shot clipped a tree and fell well short of the green. Shirley found the left greenside bunker, but converted the up-and-down par for the win and a 3-up lead.
Shirley's hot hand with the putter again played to her advantage on the par-4 11th. After Potter chipped to within 3 feet for par, Shirley drained an 18-foot birdie putt for a 4-up lead.
When Potter missed a par comebacker on No. 13, Shirley had a dormie-5 lead.
Families were a weeklong presence for Shirley and Potter.
"Julia is a great champion, obviously a phenomenal player but an even better person," said Shirley.
That's what my dad was out there for me, and I'm sure that's the same for Margaret.
Shirley cruised to a 5-and-4 win over four-time champion Meghan Stasi, while Potter took a 2-and-1 victory over Tara Joy-Connelly.
Shirley receives a 10-year Women's Mid-Amateur exemption, as well as a two-year exemption into the U.S. Women's Amateur.

Assistant coach Margaret ..., 19 May 2013 [cached]
Assistant coach Margaret Shirley left in February because she couldn't travel with the team during her own bout with health issues.
Shirley now works for Atlanta Junior Golf, where she got her own start as a youngster. She was diagnosed with low blood pressure after she had passed out several times, including once at Auburn's football national championship game in January 2011. She took much of November and December off, and doctors placed her on travel restrictions until May.
Shirley, who played for Evans, said she's fine now. She showed up for part of the Friday round during regionals to cheer on her former team and said what they accomplished "brought me to tears."
"They just kind of had that look in their eye," Shirley said. "They're fighters.

No. 9: USGA CHAMPION: Georgia had a USGA champion for the second straight year, as Atlanta native Margaret Shirley captured the U.S Women's Mid-Amateur Championship in Indiana.
Shirley defeated Indiana resident Julia Potter 5&3 in a rematch of last year's finals, which Potter won on the first playoff hole.
Shirley, a three-time Georgia Women's Open champion who served as an assistant coach at both Georgia and Auburn after playing on the Auburn women's team, was also the qualifying medalist in the tournament. She won six matches along the way, including an impressive 5&4 victory in the semifinals over former tournament champion Meghan Stassi. Shirley is the Manager of Rules and Competition for Atlanta Junior Golf.
