Margaret Shirley, ..., 5 Mar 2015 [cached]
Margaret Shirley, Atlanta MARIETTA, Ga. - In a year that included many dominating performances, Margaret Shirley of Atlanta was selected as the Tommy Barnes Award winner, signifying the Georgia State Golf Association's overall player of the year for 2014. Shirley was honored at the GSGA's Player of the Year Luncheon, held at Cherokee Town Club in Atlanta on January 17, 2015.
This past year, how Shirley performed on the golf course will be remembered forever. She became a national champion by winning the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship, played at Harbour Trees Golf Club in Noblesville, Ind., in September. After she finished runner-up at this event in 2013, she fought back in 2014 to win the final match 5 and 3, over the same competitor she lost to in 2013.
Shirley, who played golf at Auburn University and now works with the Atlanta Junior Golf Association, also qualified for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. She finished sixth at the Georgia Women's Open, which was played at Brookfield Country Club in Roswell.

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.
