Paul takes her 3rd Juniper title by 3 strokes

By Linda Younkin Published:

Carolyn Paul ended her summer golf schedule with a bang.
Playing in her final tournament of the season, Paul captured The Juniper women’s invitational Wednesday at Juniper Hill.
She also won the tournament in 2007 and 2011.
“It was a fun day,” Paul said. “I played real solid today. I putted better today, and I usually do not.”
Paul won the tournament with a one-over par 75, three shots ahead of Anne Combs and defending champion Cynthia Powell. Combs took second place in a scorecard playoff.
Paul lives in Eminence, and her home course is Henry County Country Club.
“I’ve played more golf this summer than I have the last four or five summers,” she said. “I’ve had fun, and I’ve improved this year. I’m doing well.”
Paul’s victory in The Juniper was her first tournament win this summer, and her 75 is her best tournament score this year. She’s played in about six tournaments.
The last time Paul played in The Juniper was in 2011, the last time she won the tournament.
She came into this year’s event with no expectations.
“I was happy to play in the foursome I had and to play well,” Paul said. “I played in a group with Anne Combs and Cynthia Powell, and it was great.
“If I could be somewhere in the 70s I was going to be happy today.”
Pam Rhodes won the Betty Satterly Award, given to the Juniper Hill member with the lowest net score. Rhodes won the award with a net score of 65.
