Barbara Fay White Cup Team Matches

WHAT A DAY OF TEAM MATCHES!  This was the final day of the two days of the Barbara Fay White Cup, which started this year on September 23rd, with the East Team taking the lead 6 – 4, in the 2-lady team scramble, match play event.

Forty ladies competed on this Day 2 in once-again beautiful weather to vie for the Cup which was won last year by the West Team.  It couldn’t get much more exciting than it did today….much like the recent President’s Cup. 

With eight of the ten matches finished, the next match came in with a tie….bringing the total to 9 ½ to 9 ½. Only one match was still out and it was obvious that whichever team won THAT match would determine who won THE Matches.  Who would have thought!  The tenth team in was ALSO a TIE!  The final score: 10 – 10.  EVERYONE WAS A WINNER!
This hasn’t happened before in the history of the Barabara Fay White Cup and isn’t likely to happen again anytime soon.  But how exciting!
 
And speaking of exciting, we must mention Jill Litton’s (NHGC) eagle out of a bunker as well as Cathy Buckley’s (BWGA) eagle on one of the par five’s where she miraculously hit into the group ahead by hitting a whopper second shot onto the green….ending in an eagle.
 
Once again, Stonebridge hospitality was great and everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously.  About fifty ladies participated over the two days, giving everyone who wanted to play an opportunity to do so.  Congratulations to Team Matches Chairman Suzanne Tinsley and her committee for a successful event.  We are already looking forward to next year’s matches!

2015 SWGA Championship

The 82nd Annual SWGA Championship was hosted by the Eastridge Ladies Assn. at Huntington Golf Club, a completely "neutral" course for all the twenty-five ladies that participated in the 2-day stroke play event on September 30 and October 1.  The recently renovated course at Huntington was in great shape and Pro Reggie Adams and his entire staff made everyone feel "at home" and special.

Day one was tee times, and ladies were "properly" announced at the #1 Tee Box by Pro Reg Adams as they hit their first tee shot of the day, being cheered on by onlookers.  When the scores were tallied for day one, Kathy Davis of Southern Trace CC had the lead by three strokes under Debbie Magee of Stonebridge, and also winning the Day One Medalist trophy with her score of 77!  Net Medalist went to Mary Moore of Fox Run GC with her very nice score of 84, resulting in a net score of 67 which was three strokes better than the closest competitors.

A cool front rolled in for day two, bringing with it a 1-2 club wind to deal with.  The shotgun start at 9:00am brought out a few sweaters but didn't "cool" the competition.  Kathy Davis kept up the pace she set a day earlier and finished with an 80, edging out last year's champion, Mary Lynn Stuart, by five strokes to win the 2015 Championship.  Kathy also had overall low putts of 56, tied with Debbie Magee of Stonebridge CC.


Net Champion for 2015 is Jill Litton of Northwood Hills GC, who quietly slipped up on everyone with her net scores of 71 and 68, winning by one stroke under Suzanne Patton of BWGA at Shreveport CC.  Jill also took the Closest to the Line award.

At the awards luncheon ladies were treated to a lovely and tasty grilled chicken and fruit salad created by the Huntington and Querbes Food and Beverage Director Tina Bynog, who went "all out" to accommodate our SWGA group.

In addition to the Dick's Sporting Goods Gift Cards that were given to the winners, every player was given a "free green fee" certificate to Huntington by management, making everyone a winner!
