SWGA Playday at Southern Trace



The Hottest golfing day of the year!!! Well, it may not have been, but it felt like it for the 35 ladies that nearly suffered heat stroke at our SWGA Playday at Southern Trace on Thursday, August 11. It was HOT!


And everyone who finished (and that would be everyone but ME) are surely WINNERS for taking on the weather and BEATING it! The course was, as usual, beautiful and in great condition. Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) took advantage of the great conditions and shot the low round of the day with a really fine 81, followed closely by Kathy Davis who was playing at her home course and shot a nice 83. The overall low net score was 72 with a tie between Kathryn Salpietra (STCC) and Marge Snyder (NHGC). And did I mention….it was HOT??!!!


  The greens were a nice speed (average of 34.2 putts) for most ladies, with putts ranging from 29 to 42. The 42-putter will reman anonymous, but the 29-putters are to be applauded and they were Suzanne Patton (BWGA) and Mary Lynn Stuart. Suzanne had a hot putter (to match the weather!) with NINE one-putts, followed by Mary Lynn with 8 one-putts and Becky Farr with seven. Good putting, ladies!
