2014 EWGA Cup Match Play - Sectionals Next Up

By Kris Corbridge, Sacramento EWGA Cup Captain

The time is growing near for the qualifying event for this years EWGA Cup Match Play Event.  The venue for this first stage is the Westin Mission Hills, Pete Dye Course, Rancho Mirage, CA, September 13-14.  The team representing the Sacramento and Stockton chapters consists of: Captain Kris Corbridge, Kathleen McKilligan, Patricia Ickes, Karen Biscaha, Maryellen Haddock, Betty Lou Beyer, Laura Maupin, and Laura Espinosa.  

 

We have been working hard on practicing match play strategy with emphasis on course management, rules/penalties specific to match play, and improving our short games.

 

The planning for this event starts early each year, with registrations beginning April 1st for sectionals, which is a first come first serve registration, whereby any chapter can register for the regional of their choice across the country.  As we predicted, Rancho Mirage was a very popular destination and the west coast regionals grew from 11 teams last year to 19 this year.  Because of this they have divided the event into two qualifiers, with each playing an early and a late shotgun each day.  The top 4 teams from each of the Pacific and Western qualifiers will advance to the final event, to be held Dec 7-8 at Troon North, Scottsdale, AZ.

 

Last year's team finished 5th in the National Championship and we are hoping for an equally successful showing this year. So if you see any of the members of this years team please wish them well as they endeavor to bring home the gold.

2014 Fast Trackers Celebrate -- Jul 21

 

This past Monday, 24 members and guests enjoyed the Fast Tracker 9-Hole Scramble at Woodcreek Golf Club.  This tournament was the final "lesson" of the 10-lesson series for the 13 Fast Tracker participants.  Several of the 11 volunteer mentors were on board to lead the teams and help them with course management. 

 

The competition was fierce, as six teams fought for the first place prize of a 9-Hole round of golf at Woodcreek.  Even the last place team got a prize: home-grown grapes that were not sour and tomatoes that were not rotten!   

 

Congratulations to the first place winners:

  • Krista Wylder, Team leader
  • Sunny Mills, Honorary Fast Tracker
  • Connie Clark, Fast Tracker and Brand New Member
  • Paula Forman, Brand New Member

After playing, everyone gathered at the 19th hole for food and festivities. Fast Track Leader Clare Payne presented each of the eight Fast Trackers in attendance with a certificate and a gift that one just cannot have enough of - water balls!

 

In a surprise move, the class led by Nancy Lyons and Mary Lou Azevedo actually left Clare speechless.  You might see a little tear in Clare's eye as Nancy gives her a gift certificate and card signed by all the 2014 Fast Trackers.  Mary Lou presented each volunteer mentor and Laura Espinoza (Clare's volunteer assistant) with a sleeve of balls.  So what is a graduation party without cake?  Yummy chocolate cake for all - what a way to end the day!

 

Congratulations Fast Trackers!  A special thank you to Clare, Laura and the mentors for your time, expertise and dedication!

 

2014 Fast Trackers  

2014 Fast Trackers:  Mary Lou Azevedo, Catherine Barta, Linda Bjorklund, Connie Clark, Kim Haas, Ruth Hunter, Fern Lukka, Nancy Lyons, Gloria Roberts, Tracy Rubino, Trudy Sinclair, Beth Stillwaugh, Yvonne Walden.
