Maggie Leef made history this past summer, competing in the first U.S. Senior Women's Open at Chicago Golf Club.
The rest of the summer, the Pewaukee golfer made a mark on senior women's golf in Wisconsin. She won the Wisconsin Women's State Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship and and placed in the top six of four other WWSGA points events to easily win the WWSGA Senior Player-of-the-Year honor.
Leef finished with 358 points in seven events. Syd Wells of Menominee, Michigan, who was the 2017 WWSGA Senior Player of the Year, was second with 180 points while Madison's Sarah DeKraay was third with 150.
Her summer began with a 17th-place finish at the Wisconsin Women's State Open at Janesville Country Club, where the 58-year-old tied with three current college golfers and once recent college grad. She lost in the semifinals of the WWSGA State Match Play Championship 1-up to UW-Green Bay golfer Ashley Kulka, finished third to Wells at the WWSGA Senior Amateur Championship and tied for sixth at the Badger Mutual Insurance Women's Amateur at Brown Deer Park Golf Course before her victory at the WWSGA Mid-Amateur.
