LPGA Women Who Play Renamed LPGA Amateur Golf Association
The commitment remains to create local and national golf communities for women
In April we learned that EWGA moved under the LPGA umbrella and was rebranded as LPGA Women Who Play. A national member survey followed in May, and based on comments and survey responses, it was determined that LPGA Women Who Play did not adequately describe who we are and what our organization is about. National listened and learned from member comments and announced, effective June 25, LPGA Women Who Play will now be known as LPGA Amateur Golf Association.
I encourage you to visit LPGA Amateur Golf Association. Under the LPGA Women’s Network tab there is a drop down labeled instruction. It’s a gold mine! There are tips for anything that ails you. Finishing at the target isn’t enough; The key to alignment could be your eyes; and A beginner’s guide to the mental side of golf kept me captivated. But what really caught my attention is Secrets of a Champion: Smile Your Way to Making More Putts. I’m giddy!
July brings us two special events. July 7 is our Chapter Championship at Black Butte. First flight: Janelle Strom & Halley Kramer; Second Flight: Martie King & Ann Chapman; and the Third Flight: Laurel Ewing & Debbie Bensching. The low gross and low net winners from each flight will advance to the district semi-finals at OGA Golf Course in Woodburn, OR on August 4. Since there are only two competitors in each flight, all will qualify to advance. GO TEAM GO!
July 18 is our social event extraordinaire! Friends, golf, food and favorite beverages, a chipping and putting lesson from Kevin Story – Eagle Crest’s Head Pro, and a fun chipping and putting game to end the evening. RSVP Now!
Cheers to more golf and networking opportunities!
