One hundred ten women competed in the second all-match-play Championship,
without sectional qualifying at the East Lake Course of the Atlanta (Ga.) Athletic
Miss Beverly Hanson, of the Fargo (N.D.) Country Club, defeated Miss Mae Murray,
6 and 4, in the final.
This golden anniversary event was noteworthy for the most extra holes ever
played in the Championship. Miss Murray defeated Miss Fay Crocker, of Montevideo,
Uruguay, on the 27th hole in the fourth round after nine extra holes.
Each player was two under par for the 27 holes. Miss Philomena Garvey went
furthest of nine foreign entrants, including members of the British Curtis Cup
Team, losing to Miss Hanson in the fifth round.
