Captain's Cup ...
As you all know the 2014 Captain's Cup Tournament took place on Sept 25th at Ravenwood Golf Club. What a beautiful day to play those matches, and the folks at Ravenwood were very gracious and generous with their golf course and facilities.
Team members ...
Jenna Hoecker, Sara Eichelberger, Kitty Colliflower, Joy Florczak, Maggie Kril, Sharon Kovach, Julie Hamm, Traci Petrillo, Margie Champlin,Tammy Hammond, Marcia Exner, Wendy Wright, Cathy Ambler, Liz Jaenike, Jan Ricci, Mary Schlitzer and Joan LeRoy.
The perfect combination of rookies, seasoned veterans, young and numerically mature:) What a fine group of competitors all fearlessly lead by our two
amazing captains, Susie Yarnall and Becky Duino.
The morning best ball matches were won by the WRDGA with a team score of 6 - 2. It was nice to jump out to and early lead as historically alternate shot
has not been our strength. That all changed with some outstanding play from team Colliflower/Florczak who shot 38 on alternate shot. Then there was team
Hoecker/Eichelberger who if I have it correctly, hit under a tree, then under a bush, then in a bunker, then in the fairway, then Jenna chipped in to save par
to tie the hole. Crazy. Needless to say, the WRDGA won alternate shot by a score of 5.5-2.5.
The final individual matches were too close for comfort. The winning point came from a 20 foot putt on hole #9 by Traci Petrillo to offer the final blow. These
are just a few highlights. Great golf was played by all team members under the fine direction of our captains. We squeaked out individual matches with a
winning score of 8.5 - 7.5.
In the end the WRDGA defeated the SWDGA by a score of 20 - 12 (our largest victory to date).
Please join us in congratulating the 2014 Captain's Cup Team and Captains for this tremendous victory. The cup stays in Rochester where it belongs.
