EWGA CUP RESULTS
The 16 EWGA Cup players from San Diego (comprised of two 8 person teams, the Driving Divas and Chix with Stix) played in The Pacific Region Qualifier on September 13 and 14th on the Pete Dye Course at the Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, CA. The teams played in probably the hottest venue ever as the desert experienced a heat wave that took the temperatures to the 105+ degree range. Ten teams in all from the region competed and they are all to be commended for sticking it out for the Friday practice round and the Saturday and Sunday competitive rounds. Everyone had to pay strict attention to hydrating constantly, drinking water with electrlytes, staying in the shade as much as possible, using the wet neck towels provided by the course, and watching out for signs of heat exhaustion! It was survival of the fittest out there! Unfortunatly for San Diego, the competition was very stiff and we won't be moving on to the finals on December 7 and 8 at Troon North in Scottsdale. Saturday was a slow start for us, but both teams accumulated quite a few more points on Sunday, with the Driving Divas getting 6 out of 8, and missing 4th place by half a point. Thanks Ladies - everyone did their best in very difficult weather conditions! Team Captain Susan Crawford was heard to say "We'll be ba-aack"!

Friends and/or family can come to Santa Clarita for the Friday night reception, Saturday and Sunday lunches and casual golf rounds. There is fun for everyone. See the Upcoming Events section of the website for the link to register for the events. We would love to have a big cheering section and friends to celebrate with us.
