Jenny Haglund – Winner of 2018 Symetra Classic
She only had five holes to finish her second and final round in May, but what Jenny Haglund (Karlstad, Sweden) didn’t know was it actually would take six to win the Symetra Classic at River Run Country Club.
“I didn’t really think it was going to be a playoff,” said Haglund. “I was sitting, waiting around for my friend who was in the last group. Before [the playoff], I went into my bubble and did a warm-up, then out. It was a long day, but passed the time by doing some other things.”
The former Southern Methodist University (SMU) standout capped a final round 5-under par with a birdie on No. 18, to snag the solo lead at 4-under par overall. That happened around 10 a.m. ET.
From there, Haglund waited. And waited. A little over five hours later, she found herself on the tee box of No. 18 again, this time in the first hole of a sudden-death playoff against Dottie Ardina (Laguna, Philippines).
Each player knocked their third shot onto the green to make it a putting contest. Haglund stepped up first, about 45-feet from the cup, and with ice in her veins, rolled it right down Broadway. That proved to be the deciding factor, as Ardina was not able to convert her birdie opportunity.
