Women's S.C. Golf Association Team Championship set for Seabrook Island

sports@islandpacket.comMarch 18, 2014 

Long Cove Club's Sharon Son Hing and Hampton Hall's Kristin Berger will be looking to defend their title when 58 teams of two tee off Tuesday in the Women's S.C. Golf Association Team Championship at the Crooked Oaks Course at Seabrook Island.

The duo edged Dawn Woodard (Thornblade) and Sue Churchich (Belfair) by two strokes in the 2013 event at Oldfield Golf Club in Okatie. Woodard and Churchich are looking to return to the top. They won in 2012.

Another team that could make some noise is the pairing of WSCGA Amateur Champions Lea Venable (Holly Tree CC) and Cecelia Fournil (Forest Lake Club). Venable is the reigning amateur champ.

Round 1 will be four ball where the best individual score for the team will count. Round 2 will be modified alternate shot. Each player will tee off, then players will switch balls. After the second shot, teams will play the best ball and play alternate shot until the ball is holed.
