Potee Out Front In Indiana Women's State Am

COLUMBUS, Ind. - Noblesville’s Meghan Potee, who will be a junior for the University of Kansas women’s golf team, fired an opening round 69 to take the lead in the Indiana Women’s State Amateur at Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus.

Potee, who captured the Indiana Women’s Golf Association Match Play Title in early June, was the only person in the 89 player field to break 70.

“I played really steady,” said Potee. “I only had one bogey all day and that was due to a missed four footer. I actually missed a couple of four footers. It could have been lower."

Potee’s play came as no surprise to her. In addition to her IWGA Match Play title she also finished tied for eighth in the Indiana PGA Women’s Open and this past week qualified for the USGA Women’s Amateur Championship.

“I’ve just played a lot more this summer,” said Potee. “In the past I’ve hit a lot of balls but this summer I’ve played more and it has helped me be better prepared for the situations I see in tournaments."

Potee’s round included just one bogey and four birdies. Her bogey came on her third hole of the day, the 357 yard par 4, 12th. She rebounded with birdies on the par 5, 14th, the par 4, 16th and the par 5, 18th to end her first nine holes with a 3 under par 33.

She followed up her opening nine with nine straight pars. Potee will enter Thursday’s second round with a two shot lead over Kendallville’s Katie Sharp and Newburgh’s Kayla Katterhenry.

Sharp was three under par with three holes to play but suffered bogeys on her 16th and 18th holes to finish 1-under. Katterhenry was 2-under par over her last six holes to finish at 71. Potee does not plan a change in her approach to the final two rounds.

“I just want to play the same as today,” she said. “Consistent and steady without a lot of swing thoughts in my head." The field will be flighted after Thursday’s round with the low 20 players and ties qualifying for the Championship Flight.
