Friday night, John Milledge alum and Clemson commit Ashlan Ramsey was 36 holes away from winning her third amateur title in a row.

All that changed when she woke up Saturday morning.

"I went to crack my neck and it didn't go so well," explained Ramsey.  "I kind of had some neck and shoulder pain and had to ice it before my tee time and didn't make a full swing before my tee time and didn't putt at all before I played."

Ashlan called her dad, ready to drop out of the final round.  After talking it over, she decided to play through the pain.

"Somehow, [I] managed to hit it down the fairway on the first hole and actually won the first hole," said Ramsey.

"The second round it felt a little bit better, but then we had a rain delay before the last hole which I was kind of nervous about how that would effect it."

The rain didn't matter.  Ramsey fought through to win her third straight title 7 & 6 over Ball State junior Jenna Hague.

Ashlan is now ranked second in Golfweek's Women's Amateur Rankings behind Lydia Ko.

For the next few days, Ashlan gets to be a college kid.  She travels to Clemson for orientation on Monday and Tuesday.  Wednesday it back on the green for the Georgia Top 60 in Columbus.
