Southern California PGA returned to Mission Hills Country Club for the 8th playing of the Southern California Women’s Cup Matches on December 6-7. The Ryder Cup style event is contested against the top ladies of the SCPGA and the SCGA for the eight member team matchup of professional vs amateurs.
Day one four-ball matches saw the SCGA get out to an early lead, winning three of the four matches and go ahead 3-1.
The single matches followed in day two and had some exciting matches, with three matches reaching the 18th hole. Team SCGA picked up where they left off on day one, winning seven of their eight matches resulting in SCPGA coming up short for the competition and the SCGA team claiming the Cup for the first time in history with the dominating win of 10.5 – 1.5. Congratulations to the SCGA women for their strong performance and joining in a fun competition..
Team members representing the SCPGA were Captain Nikki Gatch, Kim Falcone, Alison Curdt, Erika Ilagan, Heather King, Bari Brandwynne, Mardell Wilkins, Petra Cole and Lehua Wise.
The SCGA was led by some young firepower in Hailey Borja, Alexa Melton, Zoe Campos & Amari Avery – all of which are also members of the SCPGA Junior Tour. Akemi Khait, Mina Hardin, Kathy Kurata and Corey Weworski rounded out the winning team, captained by Judy Anderson.
Thank you to Mission Hills Country Club for the continued support as the host of these matches.
