RI’s Paik in 2nd at New England Women’s Amateur Through Two Days
Rhode Island’s Allison Paik is in sole possession of second place at the New England Women’s Amateur behind Shannon Johnson through two rounds at North Conway Country Club in New Hampshire.
Paik, who is the only Rhode Islander in the field, is one over par for the tournament, while Johnson is one under.
Paik tees off in the final group on Wednesday at 11:20 a.m.
As GolfNewsRI reported earlier this summer, Paik committed to the University of Columbia to play golf after graduating from Wheeler.
Paik joined The Golf Dudes on Coalition Talk Radio later that week.
A Back 9 Battle
Paik started the round two shots off the lead, but by the turn, she was tied for the lead with Johnson at two-over par for the tournament.
Paik then made birdie on the tenth hole to make the lead by herself, before Johnson tied it back up with a birdie on 11.
Johnson would grab sole possession of the lead when Paik made bogey on 12.
Paik would get it back with a birdie on the 15th hole, however, Johnson would finish strong with birdies on 17 and 18 to remain in first place.
