Atwell Aces Pechauer Ladies Tour
Carolina Ladies J. Pechauer Tour / Lexington, SC
Janet Atwell came in first at the Carolina Ladies J. Pechauer Tour’s February 21 stop, triumphing over the other nine players in the field. The event boasted a $750-added purse and was hosted by Grady’s in Lexington, SC.
Though the turnout was small, in that field were WPBA pro Belinda Calhoun and top amateurs Buffy Jolie and Karen Webb. Atwell worked her way through the winners’ bracket to face Calhoun, whom she defeated 9-7 in a nail-biting match.
Jolie and Calhoun went hill-hill to see who would face Atwell in the finals, with the seasoned pro prevailing 7-6. Instead of opting to play out the double-elimination finals, Calhoun and Atwell agreed to split the pot after Calhoun won the first set 7-6.
