Local Gals at Solheim Cup

The United States hosts the Solheim Cup, the Olympics of women's golf, this year at Rich Harvest Farms Country Club near Chicago, Illinois. And amongst the 100,000 fans will be three of our own SWGA gals: Cathy Morgan, JoAnna Ward, and Cathy Buckley. They have been planning for a long time to attend the event that starts on Friday.
Cathy sent me a few pics so I thought I would share with you. Sure wish I were there with them. GO USA!!!!

SWGA Playday at Crooked Hollow

Crooked Hollow Golf Club was the site of today's SWGA playday, hosted by the Broadmoor Women's Golf Association. Thirty-two ladies braved the heat and what turned out to be a wet day of golf. I'd like to thank John for all his hospitality and efforts to help make our playday a success. For today's results, check the right hand column.

See you next month at the SWGA Championship at Palmetto Country Club.

State Four Ball

It's alway bittersweet to write about a tournament that we've completed.....because that means it's finished....till next year.

Once again, the State Four Ball at Stonebridge was a great success, with not one rain drop (although it may have felt REALLY good). The 108 ladies that participated contended with not just each other, but with heat indexes of 105-107 degrees. Everyone hung in and had a great time. I might add, when the Grounds Keepers cut the rough, they are going to find LOTS of balls!

SWGA had a good showing with 18 participants.
And of those 18, we had five teams that placed in their flights.

In the First Flight, Moise Allen (STCC) and partner A. Ridley won 1st Low Gross with a two-day total of 153 (127 Net). Mary Jo Gray (WGAS) and partner P. Gentry, won 2nd Low Gross with a two-day total of 155 (131 Net).
The Second Flight also had two SWGA team winners, all from BWGA: Shirley Pettitt and Kathleen McCoy won 1st Low Net with a 124 (158 Gross), while Donna Cobb and Tina Essler took 2nd Low Gross with their 160 (128 Net). Shirley Pettitt also won Closest to the Hole, landing it about 3 feet from the hole on #17. You GO girl!
And the Third Flight belonged to Martha Lawhorne (BWGA) and Di Ann Montgomery, winning 1st Low Gross with their 173 (129 Net).

Another tournament filled with good FUN, good FOOD, good FRIENDS!
