PINEHURST – The first of two days of competition in the NCHSAA Women’s Golf Championships has concluded. Day one saw conditions deteriorate throughout the course of the round, as a cold front began making its way across the state and into the Pinehurst region. Winds picked up and were swirling, making play a little more challenging than usual.
