The SCPGA Women Professionals came away victorious in the 4thAnnual Southern California Women’s Cup Matches held at Mission Hills Country Club on the Dinah Shore Course. This is the fourth year in a row women of the SCPGA won in dominating fashion. Each year, the matches are contested between the professionals of the SCPGA and the amateurs from the Women’s Southern California Golf Council.
The SCPGA team came out ready to show the women amateurs that not even the cold and rain could slow them down in their quest to retain the cup. After the morning four ball matches, the women of the SCPGA led 4 to 0. The SCPGA teams of Wells/Ilagan, Falcone/Curdt, Bunker/Brandwynne, and Cole/Spalding all captured a point in their matches, and put the pressure on the WSCGC team for the afternoon singles matches. The SCPGA kept the momentum going in the afternoon, and only yielded a point and a half to the WSCGC team to close out the year end event in style winning 10.5 to 1.5.
The SCPGA would like to send a special thanks to Mission Hills Country Club and Head Golf Professional, Jim Robinson, PGA for hosting the matches. Events like this are possible in large part to our wonderful sponsors, and the SCPGA would like to thank Michael Bustamante of Antigua for supplying the team uniforms. The SCPGA would like to thank all of its women professionals for their support of the constantly growing women’s division, and everyone is looking forward to an even better 2015 season, and defending the cup again next December.
The SCPGA team: Petra Cole, Julie Wells, PGA, Erika Ilagan, Meggan Bunker, Kim Falcone, PGA, Leslie Spalding, PGA, Alison Curdt, PGA, Bari Brandwynne, PGA and Captains Nikki Gatch, PGA, Melissa Meka, PGA and Junko Suzuki, PGA
