Second-year professional and Glasgow native Whitney Wade gave her father a pretty memorable Father's Day gift Sunday.
With her dad, Mark Wade, on the bag, the pint-size Kentuckian shot a 5-under 66 and rallied from six shots back to win the $125,000 Duramed Championship in Mason, Ohio.
She finished at 9-under 204 to edge former University of Georgia teammate Jean Reynolds by one shot at the Grizzly Course at The Golf Center at Kings Island.
"I knew it was tight today, but I didn't exactly know where I stood," Wade said. "Jean was firing at pins and making birdies and we were going back and forth with each other. Our group was having a good time and getting things done."
Never miss a local story.
Reynolds drained an 18-footer for birdie on the final hole to tie it up. That left Wade with a 5-foot, uphill birdie chance for the win.
"I had missed an eight-foot chance for birdie on the 16th hole that my momma could have made, so I knew I had to make that birdie on the 18th," said Wade. "When it went in, all I could think was, 'Did this really happen?'"
Wade earned $17,500 for the victory and moved from No. 42 to No. 7 on the Futures Tour's season money list.
"For this to happen today, it's just icing on the cake," said a smiling Mark Wade.
