Welcome New Members!

Glory Roberts -- Oct 10

Golftec - OCT 22

On Wednesday October 22, 2014, we had 15 members come out for the GolfTEC Rocklin Open House.  There were three certified personal golf coaches who used cameras and computers to help us analyze nearly every aspect of our swings.  The GolfTEC crew really knew how to get our attention.  First, there was wine and wonderful appetizers!  Secondly, there were contests:  Long drive-measured by total distance minus distance away from center line and closest to the hole-must be on the green.  There was also a chipping challenge that tested distance control plus accuracy.

 

Each attendee received a personal analysis, including a discussion of goals, mental preparation, practice strategies and warm-up routines.   First we were given yoga stretching techniques by a guest Pilates instructor.  Once we were all warmed up we headed to one of three bays:  chipping, driving, and full-body tracking.  We learned about all the services GolfTEC provides and were offed a 10% discount on all game plans and a 20% discount for those who chose to purchase the ultra-package.

 

Most everyone came away with at list one tip or drill what would help improve their games.  Our thanks to GolfTEC Rocklin for hosting this free demonstration.  It was a great two hours of learning and socializing in a relaxed indoor setting.

 

Paula Forman and newest member, Glory Roberts, getting lessons!

We also had closest to the pin contests on all the par threes with a $5 buy-in paying two spots. First place received $25, and second place $15. The winners were as follows:

eWGA CHAMPIONSHIP - OCT 11

Krista Wylder, Carey McLean and Karen Biscaha  just returned from the EWGA Championship in Nashville, TN and brought home a few mementos and some great memories.  

 

Krista played in the Championship Flight and ended up with a two day combined gross score of 178 for a net score of 162.   

 




Karen
won the Second Flight with a Low Gross score of 180 (net was 132).  This is the 5th year that she has been a flight medalist in multiple flights!  








And, Carey, lost in a card-off for 1st Low Net but she did come home as the 2nd Low Gross winner!



The melt method - OCT 10


There were nine of us who attended the great MELT Method Introduction class on October 10th. With the use of a soft foam roller and specifically designed balls for the body, hands and feet, we learned how to rehydrate our connective tissue and restore our flexibility.  The instructor did an excellent job of demonstrating the use of these simple tools on our bodies using techniques that are easily replicated at home.  You could hear the "oohs and aahs" as the aches and pains "melted" away.  There was a rush at the end of the class to get the instructor's class schedule and sign-up for more.  She did a great job of assessing the needs of this golfing group and teaching techniques that would improve our athletic performance.  We had one male attendee who quickly learned to place the roller where his bra strap "would be" if he had one... thank you Bob for being such a great sport and for taking our group picture!

Alta Sierra Results - OCT 5




Clare Payne's
the Big Winner at Alta Sierra
Twenty-two golfers made the trek up to beautiful Alta Sierra County Club for a game called Nutts.  You took your net score and added your putts to achieve your total score.  There was actually a four-way tie between Marcia Whiting, Linda Reid, Clare Payne and Vicki Philpott.  It ended up in a card-off, and the winner of a $100 gift certificate to Knights Paint donated by the golf course was Clare Payne.  

Vicki Philpott ended up in second and the winner of a grab bag of goodies.  

Winners of the closest to the pin on all four par 3s, received either a $10 gift card to Haggin Oaks or a $16 gift card to Trader Joes.  The winners were:

Jan Fosberg, (guest), hole 3 = 7'6"
Clare Payne, hole 7 = 8'5"
Clare Payne, hole 12 = 8 1/2'
Rashida Lilani, hole 15 = 8'5"

Rocklin club play day - Sep 28


A few raindrops didn't deter the nine women and one man who signed up to play Rocklin Golf Club.  Even though it wasn't our usual showing of golfers, everyone had a great time playing in the cooler weather.  The course was quite a challenge, but we wee all up for the task.

 

We gave prizes for the person who had the most net birdies, and the person who had the most net pars.  The winner of the net birdies was Gary Gilbert with 11.  Second place in that category was Cindy Merrall with 7.  

 

Charlotte Wells had the most net pars with 12, also shooting an 86!!! Second place with 8 was Deana Frandsen and Mary Lou Azevedo who was playing in her first 18-hole stroke play event with EWGA. Hopefully we will see more of her on the links.

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.
