Portland winners advance
Congratulations to the Portland Chapter winners in the EWGA Championship Pacific Northwest Semifinals, held recently at the beautiful BanBury Golf Course in Eagle, Idaho.
The competition came down to the very end, with Sara LaBorde winning 3rd Flight low gross in a one-hole sudden-death playoff. Beth Madden lost 2nd Flight low gross on the second hole of her playoff, but took low-net honors in a scorecard playoff. Terrie Marshall, who was bumped from the 1st Flight into the Championship Flight since the Chapter Championship, ended up shooting low-net of the field, with a 69. Our scramble team of Jen Piper, Esther Moe, Cyndi Farrell and Beverly Howard also took first. Click here for the EWGA Championship PNW site and then click on Event Results.
