May 10th, Peggy Pfeifer and Pat Callahan won their match over Darla Luzum and Liz Adams. (Liz was unable to play)  Pat says Peggy shot lights out from the gold tees scoring 44 on the front and 44 on the back at Kingswood. Pat was gracious enough to be her caddy and #1 cheerleader!!!

Way to go ladies.

Twyman/Vines Prevail Over Jacobson/Gilliland

On Saturday, May 4th at Country Club, the team of Elaine Twyman and Lisa Vines outlasted Sue Jacobson and Betty Gilliland.  The rains and cooler weather had dampened spirits but the matches must go on!  The teams agreed to bypass the first hole with the temporary green and the fifth hole which was shortened to a par 3 due to the rains and flooding.  Since the teams were playing in a shotgun, it turned out that their first hole was #15.  The match went back and forth all morning ... did I forget to mention that carts were on path and the course was a little wet!?!  

At any rate, Betty Gilliland snuck up on everyone and won the 10th hole which made Twyman and Vines 2 down going into their 4th to last hole.  Vines made a great par on #11 to get back to 1 down and then steady Elaine Twyman won #12 with a bogey.  The match was all square with 2 holes to play.  On #13, Jacobson won the hole with a par to go 1 up in the match and it was on to the par 3 14th and last hole.  Apparently Elaine Twyman wanted to play a little more golf.  She chipped from the edge of the green and SUNK the chip for a birdie which won the hole and sent the match into extra holes.  The teams tied the 15th hole again and went on to the par 5 16th.  Lisa Vines came through in the clutch and won the 16th with a bogey after a great chip out of one of the greenside bunkers!  All in all, it was a great day and a great match amongst great friends!!!

Match Play Madness Bracket Reveal Party

The rain may have canceled play on Thursday, April 25th but it could not dampen the spirits of the ladies who gathered at the Match Play Tournament Bracket Reveal Party!  The Special Tournaments committee really put on a great spread!!!  

The highlight of the party though was the drawing for placement in the tournament bracket.  People were thrilled when they heard the word BYE after their names!  There are great matches in the first round and you can follow all the action in the Match Play Tournament on its news page and by keeping up with the brackets.

These two were obviously in training mode ... and this reporter is happy she does not have to play against them in the first round!!!
