Millcreek, UT - It was hot, and it was muggy at East Bay Golf Course for the final round of the Siegfried & Jensen Utah Women's Open. In its second year running, the tournament found a familiar face at the top of the leaderboard, 2017 and now 2018 winner, Lea Garner. In a field comprising of both professionals and amateurs, the level of competition was at an all-time high. Winning by five shots, Garner beat the likes of Katrina Prendergast,  the 2018 U.S. Women's Amateur Four-Ball Champion, and Utah Valley's Carly Dehlin.
