Today marks the first day of the 2012 Women’s
Amateur Public Links Championship!
This year the WAPL Championship is being played at the Neshanic Valley Golf Course in Somerset, New Jersey.
Last night the players kicked off this week’s championship with the traditional Player’s Dinner. The Player’s Dinner at USGA championships are set up to celebrate the game and, occasionally, honor golf champions. Last night the WAPL players were able to do just that, celebrate the game of golf and glean from two golf champions, Mickey Wright and Annika Sorenstam.The WAPL Player’s Dinner celebrated the opening of the Mickey Wright room at the USGA Museum followed by a special pep talk from three-time Women’s Open Champion and Hall of Famer, Annika Sorenstam.
The Player’s Dinner is also a mark for the future. The dinner kicks off the week of intense and competitive golf amongst some of the finest amateur players.
This year we have a couple of 14 year-old, a 12 year-old and a contestant in her 60’s. The WAPL field is a place that fosters the variety and diversity amongst the best of the best.
We will be closely following this championship all week, will you?
