Saturday, June 14, 2014

National golfer Monifa Sealy finished second among a field of 80 at the Women's Eastern Golf Association Amateur Championship played from Tuesday to Thursday at the St James Plantation, Southport in North Carolina, USA. Sealy, a senior at the University of Central Florida, ended in a tie with Mexican Ana Menendez after both ladies finished with a score of 218. Sealy had to settle for silver in the sudden death playoff.

Sealy was four shots ahead of Menendez after the first two rounds, but Menendez played a solid third round, drawing even with Sealy to force the playoff. After the playoff Sealy stated she did not let the playoff situation get the best of her. Sealy said: “I really wasn't nervous. I was surprised how calm I was, actually, but it was a lot of fun and it's good to be in that place.” The T&T golfer said she wants to continue her top form for the remainder of the summer tournaments.
