Susan Cohn wins Palm Beach County Women’s Amateur golf for 16th time

Susan Cohn of Palm Beach Gardens watches her birdie putt from the fringe at the 18th hole of The Champion course at PGA National Resort during Monday's second round. Cohn won the Palm Beach County Women's Open Championship for the 16th time.

PALM BEACH GARDENS — We wouldn’t call it a drought. Not when you’ve won the tournament 15 times.

But it had been four years since Susan Cohn won the Palm Beach County Women’s Amateur Championship. The Palm Beach Gardens resident cruised to an eight-shot victory Tuesday by playing tactical golf on the venerable Champion Course at PGA National Resort.

Cohn shot 79 in wild and windy conditions to finish at 11 over 157, eight ahead of ageless Marianne Springer (86-165). Players had to stop briefly when a storm that included hail hit the course, but it only delayed the inevitable.

“You always want to win,” Cohn said. “I mean, everybody wants to win. I could have played better, but I’m satisfied. I played smartly, and that’s what counts. You have to respect this golf course.”
