Meghan Potee’s successful season began back in May when she won the IWGA Match Play Championship at Harrison Hills Golf Course in Attica. Potee was seeded sixth after firing a 3-over par 75 in the opening round qualifier and went on to defeat some of the state’s best players, claiming her first match play win.
In early July, Potee finished 7th at the Indiana PGA Women’s Open at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood after firing a pair of 74s. Later that same month Potee won her first State Amateur Championship and by a seven shot margin, with an opening round, 3-under par, 69, followed by a 1-over par, 73, and a final round 1-under par, 71. Potee has now won all four women’s major tournaments in the state at some point during her career.
“That is a really cool accomplishment,” said Potee. “I love Indiana golf because we grow up with all of these girls and it’s really fun getting to play with them,” she added.
Potee also qualified for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, which she participated in early this August.
“Being named Player of the Year is a really big honor. I had such a good summer and these tournaments really got me motivated to play well at Kansas this year,” said Potee.
