Claiming her 40th CCC Club title, Maggie Scott breezed to her fifth straight crown Thursday.
The Tennessee Professional Golf Association Hall of Famer was the lone player to break 80 in both rounds to post an 11-over-par 155 winning total.
The retired Bradley County school teacher fired an opening round 5-over 77 and then followed it up with a 6-over 78 Thursday.
Scott shot her age (70) in the final round of Ladies City Tournament last month to hold off local collegiate standouts Rheagan Hall (UT-Chattanooga) and Olivia Williams (Carson-Newman) to earn her 39th City title.
