As luck would have it, Joyce, Donna, Debbie and me were in the same flight, so we knew it would get interesting. Sure enough, Donna was matched against Debbie on the first day; Debbie was matched against Joyce on the second day; and I was matched against Joyce on the third day. Joyce and I played each other for first place in our flight's Winner's bracket. We were tied after 9, tied after 18, and on the nineteenth hole, she won, giving me second place. Donna won our flight's Consolation bracket. Phyllis Ryan won her flight's Winner's bracket. If you've never participated in one of these State Tournaments, you've missed a great experience. Put it on your calendar for next year. It's always in June. Hope to see you there!

What fun! It was great! Hot....but great.
There were only eight of us local SWGA ladies in the tournament this year, but we did a good job of representing our club. Pictured are Phyllis Ryan, Mary Jo Gray, Kathleen McCoy, Debbie Jordan McGee, Nancy Young, Donna Cobb, Joyce Middleton, and Martha Lawhorne.
