The inaugural Maine Amateur Indoor Championships concluded this weekend after a month-long race to find the state’s top indoor player. What began with 130 qualifiers in February dwindled down to the finals on March 18-19.

The men played first on Saturday, and it was a two horse race most of the day between Joe Walp and Luke Ruffing. In the end, Walp edged out the victory after scorching rounds of 63-64–127 (-17) to beat Ruffing by two strokes.

The women’s finals on Sunday were just as close, with Erin Holmes shooting a second round 68 to chase down first round leader Ruth Colucci. Holmes went 73-68–141 (-3) to win by two strokes over Colucci.

Thanks to Barnes Brook, JW Parks, Martindale, Sim City, and Virtual Golf Club of Brunswick for your support during the qualifiers, and thanks to the participants from the first year of this event.
