ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- A month after earning an invitation to play in the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, Mariah Stackhouse captured the title at the 12th Annual Bill Dickey Junior Invitational.
Wednesday, the rising senior at North Clayton High School followed her opening round 66 with a second round 70 to win the Alpharetta tournament for a second time. Stackhouse was pleased with the way she bounced back from a bogey on the 4th hole to card birdie on the 5th.
There is added pressure on Mariah these days, as she heads for the U.S Women's Open in Colorado Springs, Colo. in two weeks. Already being called "The Next Tiger Woods" by some, Stackhouse does her best to tune it all out and keep focused on her game.
