The Daily Inter Lake

WHITEFISH — Coral Schulz of Whitefish was a wire-to-wire winner at the 83rd annual Earl Hunt Memorial 4th of July Golf Tournament at Whitefish Lake Golf Club on Saturday.

The senior to be at Montana State University took a four-shot lead into the final round and wound up finishing five shots ahead of defending champion and runner-up Jasi Acharya of Carver, Minnesota.

Schulz shot 69-74-74—217 for the 54-hole event.

Acharya had rounds of 70-80-72—222 with her 72 on Saturday for the women on the North Course the low round of the day.

“I stayed calm, had fun and putted well,” Schulz said.

“My putting was good today. That really helped my score.”

Missoula’s Sean Ramsbacher, who was three shots off the pace after 36 holes, closed with a 1-over 72 on the South Course for a one-shot victory over Liam Clancy.

Ramsbacher shot 72-71-72—215 with Clancy turning in rounds of 70-71-75—216.

Friday’s leader, Payton Taylor of Hamilton, closed with a 77 to tie Garrett Woodin and Byron Olson for third place at 217.

This was the fifth 4th of July Tournament appearance for Schulz. Her previous best finish here was fifth.

“This is the only tournament I wanted to win,” she said.

“It’s my home course and a local hasn’t won it for quite awhile. That was definitely the top goal for the summer.”

The last Flathead Valley woman to win this event was Christine Newton of Whitefish in 1987. Dave Morberg of Kalispell also won the men’s title that year.

Josh Gold of Kalispell won it in 2006.

“Typically, I like to be behind,” she said heading into a final round.

“It gives me strong motivation. Since I wasn’t (Saturday), I didn’t think about it.”

The final day for Schulz, however, was not a breeze. She had a rough start on the first hole.

“I absolutely hooked my tee shot,” she said.

“I then punched a shot, shot to the green and made a big putt for par. I didn’t panic. I played smart.”

Schulz was a two-time Class A state champion for Whitefish High School, winning medalist honors in 2015 and 2016.

“Tim Olson and Terry Nelson and rest of the staff did a fabulous job putting the tournament on,” Schulz said.

“Also (a big thanks) to Chris Newton.”
