Warren’s Clemente Wins The Sally

Gianna Clemente of Warren, the 14-year-old who is currently America’s top-ranked junior player, earned a one-stroke victory in ‘The Sally’ on Saturday at Oceanside Country Club in Ormond Beach, FL.

The rising star added her name to the list of past champions of one of the nation’s longest-running women’s amateur tournaments, which began in 1926.

Finishing at even par for the four tournament rounds, Clemente topped Morgan Ketchum, a freshman at Virginia Tech who finished hot with four birdies on the back nine in the final round.

Officially called the Women’s South Atlantic Amateur Championship, past winners of the Sally include World Golf Hall of Famers Patty Berg and Babe Zaharias, and major champions Cristie Kerr, Lexi Thompson, Jessica Korda, Brooke Henderson, and Grace Park.
