Who would have thought that on December 2nd we could play golf in 68 degree weather? It happened today and forty-six ladies enjoyed that lovely weather at our annual Jingle Bell Tournament held at Palmetto Country Club.
Not far behind them and taking Second Place with a 67 score was Team Pettitt ( Shirley Pettitt, Linda Heins, Charlotte Calhoun, and Carolyn Phillips).
Then it got a little more complicated. There were three teams tied at 69. After a scorecard playoff, Team Essler won Third Place. (Tina Essler, Kathleen McCoy, Caroline Stevens, and Barbara Offer)
After the second scorecard playoff, Fourth Place went to Team Morgan (Cathy Morgan, Marge Snyder, Theresa Kruse, and Vien Wheeler).
The Fifth Place Team was Team Middleton (Joyce Middleton, Kay Swope, Linda Colvin, and Grace Ireland).
There were three Closest to the Pin Winners: Hole #3 at 14' 8" was Teri McGuire; Hole #11 at 6' 1" was Tommye Englecke; and Hole #17 at a mere 4' 1/2" was Jimmie Zey, and yes, they birdied the hole!
The Closest to the Straight Line award went to Jeanette Bohringer who was only about 12" off the line. Wow!
Congratulations to everyone who played today....not just the winners....because we are all winners when we get to participate in an event with 46 golfing friends who are such an important part of our lives.

This was the last event of the year for both SWGA and SSWGA. What a grand finale! Our next event is our Annual Business Meeting on January 14th at the University Club. At that luncheon, we elect new officers for 2011 and give out the special end-of-year awards. There will be more information coming on this event.
