2012 SWGA Championship

What started out as a really wet practice round for our SWGA Championship at Fox Run, culminated with beautiful weather and we were not "cart paths only" as we had feared.  There was a very good turnout of forty-two ladies who participated in the two-day event on July 16-17.
Day One produced Medalist Carmen Leach of Fox Run with her great score of 81.  The Net Medalist was a tie of 71 between Hui Bordelon of Fox Run and Cathy Buckley of Querbes.  The scorecard playoff gave Hui Bordelon the honor and the trophy.

After the scores were tallied on Day Two, Carmen Leach stayed on track and went on to win the Championship with scores of 81 and 90 for a 2-day total of 171.  This is Carmen's first Championship win, and congratulations are surely in order.  Hui Bordelon managed to maintain her net lead and went on to win the Overall Net Champion with her net scores of 71 and 72, for a total of 143.
There was a bit of confusion with winners in the First Flight, so the results that are posted below are the official results.  There was no change in payouts, only honors.  You will notice in the slide presentastion below that there are two sets of leaderboards:  the first set is for Monday and the second set is the final, but with Tuesday's hole-by-hole scores as well as totals.

A very large "THANK YOU" goes out to the manament and the ladies of Fox Run who hosted a great tournament, complete with tee gifts and door prizes, which isn't usually done at the championship.  Everyone left with SOMETHING!
