2016 SWGA Championship

It was a HOT and WET two days of the SWGA Championship at Stonebridge after a week of rain, but the course was in good shape in spite of it.  However, if you were planning on your ball “rolling”, you had to make other plans. 
 
Twenty-seven ladies laced up their waterproof golf shoes and waded through water for the two days of cart path only.  But the water didn’t deter Mary Lynn Stuart of Eastridge CC, as she shot a great 76 the first day to win the Medalist Trophy, and followed it up on day two with a 74 to win the Championship.  This isn’t a new experience for Mary Lynn, however, as this is the eighth time since 1976 that she has achieved this honor.  Congratulations Mary Lynn!
 
The low score for Net Medalist the first day was an incredible 60 by Suzanne Tinsley, also of Eastridge CC, climbing her way to this position from the second flight!  She came back the second day and shot the same score, which gave her the Net Champion Trophy.  Congratulations Suzanne!
Overall low putts for the day was a super low 57 by Becky Farr of Stonebridge CC.  Her 57 putts for two days was over 10 strokes better than the average putts for the entire field!  That’s some good putting!
 
In spite of the wet conditions, everyone had a good time and enjoyed lunch and fellowship after getting in out of the heat to wait for the tournament results.  Thanks to Debbie Magee who took over the Championship duties at the last minute and was able to make it a great success.
