Having competed in 27 events, ‘Mel’ classifies 1981 as an uninspiring year even though she recorded the best scoring average of her five-year LPGA career. Her best finish was a T-10 at the U.S. Women’s Open. Her career best finish was a tie for fourth in the Coca-Cola Classic in 1980 where a double-bogey on the final hole cost her a spot in the playoff.
Amelia was the runner-up in the Philadelphia Junior Championship and a semifinalist in both the Pennsylvania Amateur and the Philadelphia City Amateur Championship in 1970-71.
