Nan Hill on Comeback Trail with Met Open Win
Nan Hill, a sparkling young golfer I first profiled when she was a high school standout, won the Lincoln Women's Met Open Championship at Scarsdale CC this week. The 26-year-old professional from Pelham Manor shot a 3-under 141 to post a come-from-behind win over Kelly Shon, an amateur who plays out of Bethpage.
Hill's win was particularly satisfying, coming just months after elbow surgery--her third since 2011. It's been a tough period where injury and recuperation resulted in the loss of her LPGA card and hours and hours of rehab. She credits her coach, Pelham CC head pro Mike Diffley, with keeping her mentally as well as physically on the right track.
Other local players in the top ten include Carla Wasienko (Sleepy Hollow), Julie Peluso (Sunningdale), Michelle Dobek (Fairview), and Alicia Dibos (Winged Foot). Amateur Jennifer Lee of the host club captured 13th place.
