Hart golfer’s final curtain

CIF golf playoffs: Corr shoots 2-over at third round of postseason

The last three years have all seen some mighty careers by Hart High girls golfers end at this stage.

The latest is Jamie Corr.

Corr shot a respectable 2-over 74 on Thursday at the CIF/WSCGA Regional State Qualifier at the Golf Club at Rancho California in Murrieta, the third of four rounds of the state playoffs.

The cut was at 72 with only eight girls who qualified through individual competition moving on to Tuesday’s CIF State Championship at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga.

“I guess I would say I was a little relieved,” Corr said about her feeling after her round was finished. “I kind of knew I wasn’t going to make it. The past year’s cut was 72, I think. I was happy because 74 was a good, solid round. I just didn’t have any expectations for today. I’m happy with my 74.”

Corr made three birdies, including her first hole of the day, and five bogeys.

The individual champion Thursday was Canyon of Anaheim’s Jessica Vasilic, who shot a 66.

Corr ends her prep career with two Foothill League Most Valuable Player honors (2010, 2012), four individual playoff appearances, a CIF-Southern Section Northern Team Divisional title in 2009 and with this playoff run — the first time she has surpassed the first round of the individual postseason.

“I think Jamie came into high school knowing the game of golf, but not being a real competitor. She was dedicated to the game of golf, but didn’t have nearly the love of the game she has now,” said Hart head coach Renee Onori. “Her practice became more diligent. She learned for her what worked for her game. The best golfers know their game and know how to play it, and her game’s still improving.”

Corr shot back-to-back 75s at the Oct. 25 CIF-Southern Section Northern Individual Regional and the Nov. 1 Southern Section Individual Final.

The 17-year-old golfer was ultra-consistent this season.

In Foothill League play, she was medalist in five of six matches.

On Thursday, she just needed to be inconsistent in a good way and shoot lower than what had become her norm in the postseason.

Two years ago, almost to the day, on Nov. 10, the Hart trio of Amanda Corr, Nikki Prichard and Brenna Carlson all saw their high schools career at the WSCGA tournament.

Last Nov. 11, Kendall Dusenberry couldn’t get past the WSCGA.

All four are now playing college golf.

Jamie Corr figures to do the same, as she does have an option to play at a four-year school.
