Rosie Jones Wins Legends Tour's Kinoshita Pearl Classic in Hawaii
Boston, MA, October 26, 2009 - Rosie Jones shot 2 under par to finish with a final round 70 to win the Kinoshita Pearl Classic and take home the $50,000 winners check. Jones's Final Round 70 made her 7 under par for the tournament, 4 shots ahead of Saturday's leader Colleen Walker who finished Sunday's round 3 over par. Colleen claimed solo second with a birdie on 18, finishing 3 under par for the tournament and winning $35,000.
Rosie knew this would be a good tournament for her when she arrived, commenting, "Seven is a special number for me. When I saw that my locker was number seven here at the club I got a little excited. I was born seventh in my family. And I finished seven under to win this event. So it all makes sense!"
