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.

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.
