Joy Trotter scored the first hole-in-one of her young career at the Friends of Mission Charity Classic in Asheville, North Carolina. The Symetra Tour event was contested at the Country Club of Asheville, 6339 yard layout, designed by Donald Ross in 1928.
Trotter finished tied for 62nd place with rounds of 74-71-78 (223). The hole-in-one came on third hole, a 163 yard downhill shot with bunker’s surrounding the green. Joy could not keep the momentum going in the third round where she shot a pair of 3 over par on the front and back side at the Asheville layout that include a pair of double bogey’s.
Joy will return to Southern California and play the Women’s US Open Qualifier at Industry Hill’s on Monday, May 27th. The qualifier will be the usual 36 hole, one day event. Joy (JT) will then travel to Decatur, IL, June 4th, to continue playing on the Symetra Tour.
