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.
