On July 28 afternoon, Jacquelyn Eleey of South Shore Country Club joined the history books and will forever have her name included in the rich history of the event after firing an even-par 72 on Ouimet’s home course to win the 13th edition of the Ouimet Memorial Tournament’s Women’s Division. The victory was the first of a kind for the South Shore Country Club member. Competing against a field that included three other collegiate competitors, Eleey carded a birdie on the first hole and had a very successful back nine to come away with the victory. Included in her late run were birdies made on the par-5 12th hole and par-4 14th hole.
