Cobb County native Margaret Shirley reached the finals of the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship for the third straight year, but came away with her second tough loss in the title match.

Shirley, the Executive Director of Atlanta Junior Golf, lost 2&1 in the finals in Louisiana to Virginian Lauren Greenlief, who was seeded second among the 64 players who advanced to match play. Shirley, the fourth seed, was just the eighth female and 12th player in USGA history to reach the finals of the same event three consecutive years.
Shirley, the defending champion, tied for fourth in stroke play qualifying and easily won her first match 6&5 before scoring a narrow 1-up victory in the second round. Shirley was 2-down after 9 holes before winning four of the next seven.
After a decisive 4&2 win in the third round, Shirley was all square after 11 holes in the quarterfinals, but won three of the next five holes for a 3&2 victory. Shirley again fell 2-down in the semifinals, but won holes 8, 9 and 11 to go 1-up and closed out the match with a birdie on the par-5 17th, her third winning birdie of the match on a par 5.
That sent Shirley into the finals against Greenlief, who turned 25 shortly before the tournament to reach the age minimum. Greenlief threatened to blow the match open early, winning three of the first six holes, two with birdies, while Shirley needed clutch par putts to halve the other three.
Shirley won holes 8 and 12 to close the gap, and had a chance to pull even but missed an 8-foot birdie putt at the 14th and a 3-footer for par at the 15th. Greenlief won the match when she rolled in a birdie putt of some 35 feet at the 17th, with Shirley missing from inside 15 feet in an attempt to send the match to the 18th.
Shirley played her college coach at Auburn and was an assistant on both the Georgia and Auburn women's teams before joining the staff of Atlanta Junior Golf. She played briefly as a pro and won two mini-tour events in Florida, but regained her amateur status, and won her third Georgia Women's Open title in 2013.

Tonore will face defending champion Margaret Shirley, 29, of Roswell, Ga., in the quarterfinals.

Shirley had to rally from 2 down at the turn in her Round-of-32 match against Amanda Jacobs, 27, of Portland, Ore.
Shirley, the 2013 runner-up, won holes 10 and 12 to draw even, then won 15 and 16 to go 2 up. Jacobs got one back on 17, but Shirley took the 1-up victory with a halve on 18.
"I missed a couple really short putts on 2 and 5 in my first match and my dad pointed out that I was too quick with my stroke," said Shirley, the executive director of Atlanta Junior Golf.

Julia Potter, a 25-year-old reinstated amateur from Granger, Ind., took a thrilling 19-hole victory over Margaret Shirley, 27, of Roswell, Ga., at the 2013 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship, conducted at the par-71 Biltmore Forest Country Club.

After Shirley sent her approach at the 19th hole into the creek fronting the green, Potter lagged her birdie putt to 6 inches and claimed the championship title.
"I played some of the best golf I've ever played," said Shirley, a 2008 Auburn University alumna who works for Atlanta Junior Golf.
But Shirley chipped within 4 feet at the par-4 fourth, and took the hole with a par to square the match.
Shirley took her first lead of the match at the par-4 fifth, as Potter missed a 6-footer for par, and Shirley converted her 4-foot par putt. Shirley took her first lead of the match at the par-4 fifth, as Potter missed a 6-footer for par, and Shirley converted her 4-foot par putt.
Shirley carried a 1-up lead to the inward nine, but Potter squared the match after making a beautiful approach to the par-4 11th.
"I thought I had hit it over (the green), actually," said Potter, who stuck the approach to 3 feet and was conceded the birdie when Shirley three-putted for bogey.
The back-and-forth battle continued to the 17th hole with Shirley holding a 1-up lead. Potter found the fairway off the tee for the first time in the championship, and put her approach just off the front of the green, while Shirley reached the green, 35 feet away.
Shirley left herself 4 feet for par, and when her putt burned the left edge, the match went to 18 all square.
Potter's skillful blast to within 1 foot left Shirley with a birdie putt to win from 15 feet, but she left it just inches shy of the hole.
"I hit a great shot into 18," said Shirley, "but I couldn't get too cute with that birdie putt."
The 19th hole brought back memories of Shirley's 19-hole semifinal victory over Meghan Stasi, when Stasi stubbed her approach and found the creek fronting the first green.
From almost the same location as Stasi, Shirley committed the same mistake, opening the door for Potter to complete the remarkable comeback.
"I had an awkward yardage (64 yards) with a front hole location," said Shirley, who was competing in her second U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur. "Going long on that hole is no bargain, either, but the downslope got me."
"I wasn't watching a lot of Margaret's shots at the end, just kind of basing it off the reaction," said Potter, who won the hole and the match when Shirley conceded her short par putt.
Potter receives a 10-year exemption in the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur, while Shirley receives a three-year exemption.
