PINEHURST, N.C. (WPTA) - Bishop Dwenger alum Kim Moore had a remarkable week out in North Carolina.

Wednesday she claimed the women’s title at the first-ever U.S. Adaptive Open, shooting a 16-over-par 232 for the three-round event.

Moore was born without a right foot and a clubbed left foot. She played college golf at the University of Indianapolis, and is now the women’s golf head coach at Western Michigan.

“It’s just been pretty cool to represent a bunch of people,” Moore said. “That’s something that I’m going to remember for the rest of my life.”

Jay County grad Evan Mathias played in the men’s tournament, and finished 28th in the field, shooting a 29-over 245 for the tournament.
