It took an extra hole, but Bailey Shoemaker and Madison Hewlett were crowned the Women’s Four-Ball champions Sunday at Mission Inn Resort & Club at Howey-In-The-Hills.

Shoemaker and Hewlett survived a one-hole playoff to capture the win on Sunday, Aug. 2. It is the first FSGA championship victory for both.

The pair got off to a strong start in Sunday’s final round, birding two of their first three holes. Hewlett added a birdie on the ninth to make the turn at 3-under. Their only hiccup of the day came with a bogey on the 10th, but the two quickly rebounded with two birdies over the next three holes.

With back-to-back birdies, Hewlett brought the team to 14-under for the championship and into a tie for first place. Shoemaker and Hewlett fired a final-round 66 to finish the day at 14-under 130 and in a tie for first with Kaitlyn Schroeder and Lauren Clark.
