Michelle Smith wins 5th Women's City title

The fifth time was charmed.

On a day when no one could really create any separation, Michelle Smith created just enough with a 145-yard shot into the 16th green that rolled up a foot shy of the cup, giving her a tap-in birdie and a one-stroke lead that was all she needed Monday to stave off a trio of college kids and win her fifth women’s city golf title at Chestnut Hills.

She beat defending champion and second-round leader Karley Dobis, of Homestead and Ball State, by a stroke with a final-round 72 and a 73-73-72—218 total. Dobis and Canterbury grad and Indiana University golfer Sarah Dusman, who began the day a stroke back of Dobis, shot 75s.

Dusman finished in a tie for third with first-round leader and IPFW golfer Allison Curtis at 220. Curtis shot a 1-over 73 Monday.
