Good luck to our 2013 Championship Finalists!

Saturday and Sunday, September 7th & 8th, 2013 we will have 6 Austin Chapter members competing in the EWGA National Championship! The Finals are being held at the Wigwam Resort in the Phoenix area. Players compete in stroke play flights based on their current handicap (Championship, first, second, third and fourth), there is also an alternate format Championship tournament - 4 person scramble with team handicaps. The winners are the lowest scores (gross and net from each flight) for the 2 rounds

Best of luck to our stroke players - Jeri Pack and Judi Garner and the scramble team (Sandy Wood, Cheri Hisaw, Jancy Darling and Wendy Malloch).

You can try to guess the winners in an EWGA competition of each flight (only 1 entry per person, must submit by 5pm Friday September 6th), and watch the results come in live at http://www.myewga.com/EwgaChallenge!
