WHITEFISH — Jasi Acharya of Carver, Minnesota, went wire-to-wire while Cory Mehl of Seattle turned in a sensational finish to top the leader board at the 82nd annual 4th of July Tournament at Whitefish Lake Golf Club on a sunny, but very windy Saturday.

Acharya, who led by seven shots after the first 18 holes and by six after 36, finished four shots ahead of the field to capture the women’s title.

Acharya, 63-77-76—216, had a 4-over-par round on the final day on the South Course. She broke the South Course record during Thursday’s opening session under ideal weather conditions with a 63.

Stephanie Hurlbert of Magnolia, Texas, had the best score again on the last day, carding a 74 to finish at 220. She had the best round on Friday with a 71.

Tiegan Avery of Kalispell, 72-78-76—226, was third.

Rounding out the top five were Morgan O’Neil of Laurel, 78-75-77—230, and Kylie Esh of Missoula, 70-76-87—233.

Coral Schulz of Whitefish and Cathie Tronson of Great Falls had the second best scores on the final day with 75s. Schulz finished sixth and Tronson seventh.

Mehl, who was nine shots back after 36 holes, closed with a 1-under 71 for a 214 total and a one-shot victory over Logan Lindholm of Kalispell and Andrew Medley of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Lindholm and Medley were tied for the lead after 36 holes and held a 3-shot advantage heading into Saturday’s action. Both shot 78 to close with 215 scores.

Conor Rooney of Whitefish and former champ Robb Bergeson of Billings tied foίίr fourth with 217s.

Mark Mance of Whitefish, who shot a 72 on Saturday, was sixth with a 218.

Defending champion Joey Moore of Billings was eight shots off the pace and tied for ninth.
