Holiday woman wins amateur stroke play tournament

This was a close one.

At the State Amateur Stroke Play Championship, a tournament hosted by the Florida Women's State Golf Association from July 11-13, three golfers made a push for first, but it was a Holiday resident that came out on top.

Ashley Aguilera finished with a three-day score of 213, putting her 3 under par, finishing just a stroke ahead of Tara Allen of Brooksville, who is a standout golfer at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Allen tied with Jessica Schnebly of Ormand Beach.

Allen actually finished the second day two strokes ahead of Aguilera, but Aguilera shot a 68 to Allen's 71 on the third day.

Other local finishers include Emily Van Etten of Trinity (13 over) and Tyler Etcheberry of Wesley Chapel (21 over).
