Haywood-Shea wins NEWT closer

A number of regulars on the NorthEast Women's Tour took advantage of the absence of regular WPBA players to turn in their best finishes ever in the final event on the NEWT Tour this season. Players turning in career best finishes were Kathy Friend (4th), Kathleen Crabill (5th) and Malea Haake (7th).
The tournament was won by Linda Shea with a 9-4 victory over Gail Boyd in the finals. Shea went undefeated through the field including a 7-5 win over her frequent rival, Sueyen Rhee. Rhee went on to lose to Gail Boyd in the semi-final match by the same 7-5 score.
The win was worth $650 for Shea while Boyd won $445 for second. Rhee and Friend filled out the top 4 spots.
