BILLINGS – When it comes to the Montana State Women’s Golf Association State Amateur, Kyla Clancy has been a consistent, classy top 10 performer.

Now, she is a champion.

The 20-year-old Clancy, who is from Park City, had some exceptional moments during Saturday’s final round at Yellowstone Country Club, along with some struggles, en route to a rousing one-stroke triumph over Dorsey Addicks of Big Sky.

“This is definitely one I wanted,” Clancy said of her wire-to-wire, 54-hole victory. “It was home, and a lot of people were cheering for me. I’m glad I was able to make them proud.”

Clancy, who plays her college golf at Rocky Mountain College, closed with a 3-over-par 75 on a sunny, sometimes breezy afternoon for a three-day total of 7-over 223.

The 19-year-old Addicks, who shot a final-round of even-par 72 for an 8-over 224, finished second overall by one stroke for the second consecutive summer.

“It was pretty intense,” Clancy said of the competition. “Dorsey put up a huge fight. She really came after me. She just fought to the very end.”

Clancy, whose previous best State Amateur finish was fourth in 2012 in Whitefish, was followed throughout the nearly 5 1/2-hour round by a large group of family and friends.

Her 15-year-old brother, Liam, was her caddy. They were both decked out in neon green socks, and posed together for pictures with the huge championship trophy.

“Coming down the 18th hole, there’s really no better feeling,” Clancy said. “I was just so content. I knew I was going to win it, no matter what happened.

“It’s probably the best feeling I’ve ever had in golf.”

In the Senior (age 50 and up) portion of the tournament, Helena’s Susan Court, who started the day with a 10-shot lead, won by nine strokes over Laurel’s Sue Matson.

Court, who also won state in 2010, shot a closing 88 for a 250 total. Matson put together an 87 for a 259.
