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!
