Golf Summer Fun
I really can't claim to be much of a fan of the sport of golf in general, but, our Cardinal Club swingers are out there representing the University this summer with several competing in the WWGA National Amateur Championship in Nashville, TN.
The tournament format consists of 36-holes of stroke play to qualify for a match play tournament to determine the champion.
Five Cardinals advanced to match play, Molly Skapnik (rising sophomore), Shannon Gramley (rising Junior), and three incoming freshmen, Lexie Long, Meredith Moir, and Meghan Nay. Skapnik, Gramley and Long all advanced to the championship flight in match play, while Moir played in the 4th flight, and Nay in the 6th flight.
While Lexie Long lost in the first round of match play in the championship flight, Skapnik beat Gramley in the quarterfinals to advance to the semis before being eliminated.
There will be plenty of other golf events throughout the summer, so maybe I won't have to Google some of these golf terms for future articles.
