2-Ball Scramble July 12 at Great River

From Michelle Murphy:  Yesterday (Monday, July 12th) we escaped the weather to enjoy a GREAT day at Great River.

Many thanks to Darlene Tranquilli and her team who put on a tee-rrific CWGA One-day Tournament. Below is a list of the winners:

102nd CWGA Championship June 29 - July 2 at Shuttle Meadow CC

33 players entered the Championship with the qualifying round held on a very hot and humid Tuesday June 29th. Mim Schreck took medalist honors with a 78 that included a hole in one on the 13th hole. Gia Watkins, Mercedese Large, and Jean Sennett were close behind with 79s.

Match play began on Wednesday with the low 16 qualifiers in the Championship flight and the remaining qualifiers in the Founders Cup. Advancing to the semi-finals on Thursday afternoon were Jean Sennett, Donna Harris, Myra Macmillan, and Leslie Li in the Championship Flight, and Nicole Elliot, Pam Burt, Cheryl Ziebka, and Priscilla Wargo in the Founders Cup.

18-hole final matches took place on Friday with Jean Sennett (Wampanoag CC) edging Leslie Li (Tumble Brook CC) in a close and exciting Championship match. Neither player was ever more than 1 hole up and Sennett made a birdie on 18 for the 1-up victory. In the Founders Cup Cheryl Ziebka was a 3&2 victor over Pam Burt, both members of CC of Farmington.
