SSWGA Championship and Practice Round

After some really doubtful weather forecasts, the 2014 SSWGA Championship turned into one of the best two days of golf all season with wonderful sunny and cool temps.  And in spite of tons of rain, Shreveport Country Club was in great shape and we were able to DRIVE our carts on the course.

Unfortunately, there were only eighteen ladies who took advantage of the beautiful conditions, but when the scores were computed, Debbie Magee brought her practice round scores to the course for the Championship and won both the Day One Medalist and the Championship with scores of 86 and 84.  This win came on the back of Debbie’s win at her own Club Championship a few days earlier at Stonebridge.  When you’re HOT….you’re HOT!  Congratulations Debbie!
Chasing Debbie after day one with just a one-stroke deficit was Donna Cobb (SCC) who ended up winning 1st Gross in the Championship Flight, Overall Low putts with only 57, and also had the lowest net score of the tournament with a 142.  Good golfing, Donna!
