Golf: Martinson wins women’s crown

In an attempt to take her game to a higher level, Tami Martinson decided to do some strength training.

If this week’s play is any indication, her training is going just fine.

Martinson had a dominant weekend at the Women’s City Golf Championship tournament, turning in the best two rounds in the title flight. Just one day after taking a big 6-shot lead over her nearest competitor, Martinson was nearly as good the following day.

Her rounds of 78 and 79 put her well ahead of the rest of the field as she powered her way to the first City championship of her career.

Martinson’s grand total of 157 was 14 shots better than Ev Griggs, the 2008 women’s champion who has grabbed the City title plaque on 18 occasions in her career, easily the most among all men’s or women’s champions.

No player in the tournament other than Martinson broke 84, which was Griggs’ day-one score. Griggs, who shot an 87 Sunday — tying her with Lynne Taylor for the fourth-best score of the tournament — finished as the runner-up.

Martinson said that she had spent a lot of time at the gym doing weight work to strengthen her shoulders and make her longer off the tee. She said she has seen positive results since starting the work and had some of the best drives of the tournament.
