Great Showing by Seattle Chapter at Pac NW Semi-Finals

The weather at the Golf Club at Redmond Ridge was more suitable for ducks than birdies, but the rain failed to quell the enthusiasm of the 59 golfers and 26 volunteers who participated in Saturday's EWGA Pacific NW Semi-Final.

Emerald City MatchStix Qualify for the 2014 EWGA Cup!

A few years ago, the EWGA began a regional and national match play competition, named the EWGA Cup.  Seattle EWGA has had a team competing each of the past 3 years, finishing SECOND overall last year! Captain Helen Lally, with assistance from 2013 captain Pam Gale, put together another stellar team this year. The Emerald City MatchStix took their talents to steamy Rancho Mirage Sept 13-14 and again qualified for the FINALS of the 2014 EWGA Cup, tying for first and placing second based on a tie-breaker.

L to R: Julie Schmitt, Cherie Litson, Laurel Kiichli, Diane Ginthner, Mary Herlin,
Sam Gillett, Susan Lehr, Helen Lally

Representing Seattle at the qualifier round were Captain Helen Lally, Sam Gillett, Diane Ginthner, Mary Herlin, Laurel Kiichli, Susan Lehr, Cherie Litson, and Julie Schmitt. 2013 captain Pam Gale did a terrific job putting together the team and will join the MatchStix at the finals December 7-8 at Troon North in Scottsdale.

Each team is made up of eight women.  Both the regional and national events are two days: 

Day One:  Four –Ball, a match in which two players from team A each play their own ball against two players from team B playing their own balls.  Who ever has the lowest net score for that hole wins a point for their team.  Points are awarded by hole, the match is won by winning the most points.

Day Two:  Singles match play – one-on-one play, points awarded by winning the hole. 

There is also some very good information about The EWGA Cup and match play competition that can be found at  (Log in, select Member Clubhouse, then select The EWGA Cup)
