The SCPGA Women Retain the Cup
The 2nd Annual Southern California Women’s Cup Matches had a magical feeling as the ladies from the SCPGA and WGCSC hit their tee shots on the first tee. Playing the Dinah Shore Course at Mission Hills Country Club is a special treat for the top-eight ladies from the SCPGA and WSCGC; each and every player has a special memory from watching the former Dinah Shore Championship, now the LPGA Kraft Nabisco Championship. The top-eight players on the SCPGA team were selected through the annual point rankings while the WSCGC team was selected from the various women’s golf associations throughout the Southern California region.
The SCPGA team: Meggan Bunker, Nancy Caron, Kim Falcone, Seiko Onoue, Dale Shaw, Junko Suzuki, Julie Wells Shenfield, Mardell Wilkins, and Captain Susan Roll. The WGCSC team: Penny Baziuk, Marsha Butler, Carrie Campbell Wood, Angela Collins, Joan Higgins, Kathy Kurata, Tami Melone, Ran Oh, and Captain Jody Nickel.
The SCPGA team led after the morning Four-Ball matches, 3 to 1. The SCPGA teams of Onoue-Shaw, Suzuki-Falcone, and Bunker-Wells each captured a point while the WGCSC team of Butler-Bazuik gained the solo point. The afternoon Singles Matches saw some great match ups, Wilkins, Falcone, Wells-Shenfield, and Bunker all captured full points for the SCPGA, while Shaw and Onoue each halved their matches against Melone and Oh. Butler & Higgins each captured a full-point for the WGCSC. The final result was the SCPGA winning 8 to 4.
