This one’s worth a 10: TH South coach Stuckey earns her 10th women’s city golf tournament title

TERRE HAUTE — Cara Stuckey achieved double-digit status in Terre Haute women’s city golf tournament titles Monday.

Stuckey defeated Alexandra Pickens 8 and 6 in the championship match at Hulman Links to claim her 10th championship. She has played in the event 13 times and been medalist in 12 of them.

The Terre Haute South girls golf and basketball coach began play in this year’s Terre Haute Women’s Golf Association by being medalist in qualifying with 75.

She defeated Eileen Mann in the first round of match play, then bested Ali Danielson — one of the players on this year’s South team — in the semifinals to set up the title match with Pickens, who played for South last season.

The pair began play in sunny, mild weather conditions just before 9 a.m. and Stuckey assumed the lead early with a birdie on No. 1.

She went 3 up with another birdie on No. 4 and made her third birdie on No. 8 with about a 25-foot putt to go 6 up. She was 7 up at the turn.

Pickens kept her hopes alive as the coach and former player halved the first two holes on the back before Stuckey got par on No. 12 to end the match.

“That first putt was huge … for me to have the advantage. It set the tempo. I hit the ball really well today. I got better each day of the tournament,” said Stuckey following the match.

“I had one bad shot. … The greens were awesome. They were fast,” she added.

“Cara really played well. After I failed to make [my] birdie putt on No. 1, the mood was set,” said Pickens, who will begin school at Eastern Illinois on Aug. 15 and begin college golf practice about week later. “We have a fall and spring seasons,” she noted.

Stuckey has not played in many tournaments this summer and will be busy with coaching duties starting Friday, when high school golf teams begin official practice. South will be in a tournament at Deer Creek next week and be host for its annual tournament at Rea Park.

Another former South player, Morgan Patterson, won the consolation championship by defeating Taylor Monroe 5 and 4. Patterson plays for St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

Other flight winners were Linda Price and Patti West. Consolation champs are Josie Swalls and Emily Wright, who will be a freshman at Terre Haute North.

Awards presented at a luncheon following the tournament included Stuckey low medalist, Swalls low putts in qualifying and Curtis senior medalist.

Eileen Mann has served as THWGA president this year.
