LWGA State Match Play Tournament

The LWGA State Match Play Championship was contested on June 20-23 at Koasati Pines Golf Resort in Kinder, LA.
This year there were seven ladies from the SWGA that participated in the event. Missing from this picture is Teri McGuire who was out on the course watching the other players….in the heat.

We were ALL winners just to have finished in the tremendous heat. But officially, there were only two that took home prizes. Sounds bad, but it was mostly a pairing “situation”.

On the first day in the Fourth Flight, Joyce Middleton (the 1st place seed) was matched against Kathleen McCoy (the 8th place seed). In the same flight, Debbie Magee (2nd place seed) was matched against Donna Cobb (7th place seed). So as you see, two of our four had to lose and go to the Consolation Bracket. On this day, Kathleen beat Joyce and Donna beat Debbie.

In the First and Third Flights respectively, Teri McGuire and Mary Jo Gray both won their matches. Phyllis Ryan was in the Fifth Flight and lost her match, moving into the Consolation Bracket, and the luck of the draw gave her a Bye on the second day.

The second day wasn’t a good one for us. Donna, Teri, and Kathleen all lost their Winner Bracket matches, leaving only Mary Jo, Debbie, Joyce and Phyllis to represent the SWGA ladies in the finals.

The final pairings pitted Joyce and Debbie against each other and Debbie came out the victor, winning the Fourth Flight Consolation Bracket. Mary Jo lost her match, winning second place in the Third Flight of the Winners’ Bracket. Phyllis lost her final match.

This is a great tournament and we encourage more of you to participate if you possibly can in the future. The next State Tournament is the Four Ball that is hosted at Stonebridge. It is a two-lady best ball event and will be held on August 8-10. There are a few spots left, so there is still time to sign up.

SWGA Playday at Southern Trace

Southern Trace Country Club hosted our fourth SWGA Playday of this year on Tuesday, June 15th.  Forty ladies braved the 100+ degrees and finished in record time.  Thanks to everyone for keeping the playing pace moving.

We had four flights this time and I'd like to mention the most outstanding accomplishments in this posting.  Anne Ridley of STCC just joined SWGA this month and was the low gross scorer for the day with a nice 83.  Also new to SWGA this month is Kyong Lee of BWGA.  She scored a net 65 along with Jerry Hobson (FRLGA) and Donna Phillips (STCC).  

Kip Anderson (ERCC) showed her putting prowess with a stunning 23 putts!!!  She had 3 zero putts.  In addition, Joyce Middleton (ERCC), Paulette Lee (WGAS), and Jackie Wood (BWGA) all had one zero putt.  Congratulations ladies!

Our next SWGA event will be hosted at Stonebridge on July 13 with an 8:30am shotgun start.  As an added bonus, Stonebridge will charge us only $15 rather than $20.  How can you pass up such a bargain???  Sign up with your club representative.

SSWGA Championship

Twenty-eight ladies participated in the two-day2010 SSWGA Championship held at Southern Trace Country Club June 8-9 in unseasonably hot weather.  But everyone hung in for the duration.

When the numbers were all calculated, the 2010 Champion was Mary Coker, winning with a two day total of 179 on her home course by one stroke under Teri McGuire of BWGA.  The first day Medalist was Donna Cobb, coming in with an 85, three strokes better than her closest competitor Cathy Buckley, also of BWGA.  Donna was also the 1st Low Net winner of the First Flight and won the overall low putts award.

The ladies enjoyed a very nice lunch and door prizes at the awards luncheon following play....just as the rain set in.  Joanne McDonald and her committee did a great job of hosting the event and we all extend a sincere thanks for all the work involved by those that put it all together for us.

A complete list of winners and a slideshow presentation is included in the right column of the blog.  Keep in mind that you can click on any picture of the slideshow presentations to get a fullsize picture.

For SWGA members, our next playday is June 15.....also at Southern Trace.  Don't forget to sign up.
