Mary Lou Baker
By Beaux Yenchik
In the face of figurative giants, a first-time winner took the podium following the final round of the Mary Lou Baker Open.
19-year old Kerstin Fotu claimed her first-ever Utah Golf Association trophy at Wasatch Mountain Golf Course. A 3-under 69 lead Fotu to a four-shot victory - finishing at 8-under par. While paired with Utah power-house Kelsey Chugg – who took third place at 3-under par – and local pro Haley Dunn (-4), Fotu took the “giants” and the rest of the field to town.
“It feels like I can do whatever I set my mind to,” Fotu said. “It feels good. I just told myself to take care of my drives and my putts and just focus on my own game. [Then], everything else will take care of itself and [don’t] really worry about anyone else and how they are playing.”
