LWGA State 4-Ball
On August 3rd, eighty-four ladies converged on Koasati Pines Golf Resort at Kinder, LA, to compete in the LWGA State 4-Ball Championship. The forty-two teams were divided into four flights and golfed for two days (August 4-5) in blazing hot weather. The course was as beautiful as ever, with just enough challenges to make it tough-fun.
When the scores were tallied, the overall 4-Ball Champions were Lana Hodge and Haley Harrington with gross scores of 66 on Day 1 and 69 on Day 2. Congratulations ladies!
The Shreveport area had six teams in the competition: Magee/Darnell, Cella/Patton, Middleton/Rolland, Gaiennie/Ryan, Pettitt/McCoy, and Cobb/Lawhorne. Let me say that EVERYONE was a winner in the over-the-top humidity with little or no breeze! But we did have two winning teams.
Joyce Middleton and Debbie Rolland (both ERCC) won 2nd Gross in the Third Flight with scores of 84 and 88. In the same flight, Shirley Pettitt and Kathleen McCoy (both of SCC) won 1st Low Net with net scores of 71 and 66. In addition, McCoy won closest to the pin on hole #3 at 21’ 8” from the hole, beating out Donna Cobb by less than two feet….and she made the birdie putt!!!! Hoorah!
