2021 TPWGC Club Chapionship

The 2021 TPWGC Club Championship is now in the books. 

The courses are being prepared for the upcoming Farmers Open and conditions were as expected. 

Fairways and greens were in great shape but the rough was tall and wet. It presented a true test of strength to muscle your way out of it . That’s after using your hide and seek skills as the golf balls landing off the fairway seem to immediately disappear. Add to that cold, damp weather and the courses played even longer and tougher than usual. Or was just that me? 

The tournament began with 79 competitors spread over 3 divisions with 2 flights in each division.

After Day 1

Apparently conditions were not as tough for some as we had 2 players shoot in the 70’s and 5 players scoring in the 80’s, all coming from the first flights of each division.

Now a quick recap of scoring for Day 1


Open Division- First Flight
Jan Kelleher and Deb Patterson ended the day tied for the lead, both shooting a 78. Sherri Dean was right behind them with an 81.
