HOT SPRINGS — Two top Virginia amateurs are looking to add to their already title-filled resumes this week at The Omni Homestead.
Mimi Hoffman, of Springfield, advanced to the semifinal round of the Virginia State Golf Association’s Senior Women’s Amateur Championship on Wednesday, while Salem’s Dot Bolling moved on to this morning’s Super Senior title match.
Both Hoffman and Bolling are defending their 2019 championships on The Old Course.
Hoffman, who is trying to become the first six-time winner of the tournament, beat Diane Garstka (Springfield), 2 and 1, to move to this morning’s senior semifinals and a match-up with the red-hot Andrea Miller (Keswick). Miller started her Wednesday quarterfinal match with an eagle and was 5-under-par through 13 holes in a 6 and 5 win over co-medalist Natalie Easterly (Charlottesville).
Today’s other semifinal pits co-medalist Shelley Savage (Alexandria) against Boodie McGurn (Richmond).
Bolling, who will meet Maggie Balch (Maidens) this morning in the Super Senior title match, is the all-time VSGA leader in wins with 11 championships to her credit.
