Hot Days for The Sassy Sixties Tournament
The Sassy Sixties Tournament of players had a fun time at Menlo CC in Woodside and Green Hills CC in Millbrae. It was a hot 2 days is many respects! Hot weather and conditions were challenging at both courses due to the drought. That didn’t damper their spirits! All in all had a great time.
The North Defeated the South!
I am very proud to announce to you that our WGANC Northern Team defeated the South!! It was an exciting match to watch. First it started with a monsoon down pour when they were about three holes into the match…July in the south!?!?!? Everyone played on. At one point during the day in all of the our matches we were down and had to battle back. They never showed it and just dug in deeper and worked as a team. For the first time in the history of this event (over 20 years) the contest was all square at the end. A sudden death play off was played with Lynne Cowen and Karen Garcia representing our side. Karen started off with a drive that was over 250 and a second shot of almost the same length to be pin high and off to the side. I did say this was a par 5 didn’t I? Then Lynne’s short game came up to the test and they birdied the hole!! How sweet it was.
They are very proud to be representing WGANC and work hard to win the points that let them compete at this level. They were profuse in their thanks for the support and a very happy bunch of players.
Watching this level of player is inspirational and makes one want to work a little harder to be a little better at this game we love.
See you soon.
Penny Wright, President
