Squire Creek Invitational

The Squire Creek Invitational was held September 12th this year and I'm a bit late in getting even the little bit of info I have to share.  There were many, many of our local Shreveport/Bossier ladies in the tournament, but it was next to impossible to catch up with everyone prior to tee time as everyone was scattered in all directions.  I got very few pictures and I don't have a list of winners, but the leaderboard pictures are included in the slideshow pictures.  Enjoy what little there is.....

SWGA Playday Southern Trace


Our playday at Southern Trace that was originally scheduled early in the year was rained out, but the make-up round on September 11th couldn't have been a more beautiful day.  The course was beautiful and the hospitality wonderful.

Low score of the day was shot by Kathy Davis of Southern Trace.  In fact, Southern Trace ladies swept all the gross and net winning positions.  Second gross score was by Lillian Granger, also of Southern Trace.  Is there a little home course knowledge going on here?  Great playing gals.

Overall low net for the day was a tie between Bobbie Joe Almond (PCC) and Kathleen McCoy ((BWGA) with scores of 68.  Overall low putts of 30 was also a tie between Donna Cobb (BWGA) and Kathleen McCoy.

Putting was a real challenge today it seems, with putt totals ranging from 30 to 50!!!!  That's an average of 37.5 putts per lady!  So don't feel like you were the only one putting ALOT!

For a complete list of winners, we the right hand column of the blog.

The next SWGA event for this year is the Team Matches.  Please contact your Club Rep to get more information and express your feelings about the future of team matches.  This year we are committed to Olde Oaks and we are looking at changing the format to a "shamble" on both days, with handicap so that everyone will be playing on an even field.  We'll be meeting about it very soon, so make your feelings known.

SSWGA Championship

 These thirty-seven ladies endured the torturous heat for two days September 5-6 at the Golf Club at Stone Bridge to vie for the Shreveport Senior Women's Championship. Let me repeat: it was brutally hot! And so was the competition. The format was a bit different this year with the Championship Flight playing from the red tees, while the remainder of the players played from the forward silver tees.
After the first day of play, Mary Jo Gray (WGAS) had taken the Medalist honors with her great score of 83 while Linda Colvin played "lights out" and won Net Medalist with her net score of 66 (Gross 88).
After the second day, Paulette Lee (WGAS) and Medalist Mary Jo Gray were tied with 174, but using the USGA playoff rules (lowest score for back nine holes on the second day), Paulette took the Championship honors scoring 87/87, with a back nine of 44 compared to Mary Jo's 49. It was great playing for both ladies.
Overall Net Champion was Becky Farr, coming out of the First Flight with whopping scores of 88 and 82 (the lowest score posted during the event), and a net total score of 130.
Putting scores ranged from a daily total of 28 to 45, but the Overall Putts winner was Margo Myatt (STCC) with a total of 62. Great putting, Margo!
Closest to the Pin winners were Linda Colvin, Paulette Lee, Mary Jo Gray, and Martha Lawhorne (BWGA). Longest Drive winner was Becky Hollier (WGAS).
