After her quarterfinal match didn't make it past 11 holes the previous day in a rather painless 9 & 7 win, Katie Miller faced more taxing matches in the semifinals and final Thursday at the Pennsylvania State Women's Golf Association Amateur.
But Miller, a Hempfield and North Carolina graduate, used championship experience to capture her third state amateur title.
Miller held off Katrin Wolfe of Windber Country Club, 4 & 3, in the morning session before returning in the afternoon to dispatch Samantha Staudt of Applewood Country Club, 4 & 3, at West Shore Country Club in Camp Hill.
Miller, playing out of Ligonier Country Club, was the top seed this week after shooting 73 in the stroke-play round of the championship flight.
Miller, 32, was a three-time PIAA champion at Hempfield and a two-time all-ACC player at UNC. Her last amateur title came in 2015 at Sewickley Heights Golf Club. She also won in 2007.
She tried the professional circuit (LPGA Futures Tour) for two years (2009-10) before regaining her amateur status three years ago. She has become a household name in the U.S. Women's Amateur Four-Ball event.

Katrina recorded an ace at Nemacolin Country Club on the #11 hole using a 9 wood. Playing on August 20 to witness the shot were Karen Brown, Gretchen Brehl and Ting Fox. Congrats!
Beth Szymczak knows how to turn lemons into lemonade! After the second round of the First President's tournament at Fox Chapel was cancelled on August 3rd due to poor course conditions, Beth and friends made a round at her home course really special: she aced #2 Lakes (Treesdale) using an 8 iron on the 104 yard hole. This was Beth's 3rd ace and her second on that hole. Cheering the accomplishment were Norma Efremenko, Chris Flynn and Kathy Kunschner.
