CWAC California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship

Pairings Results May 17, 2016 It’s been a long time coming. Carlsbad resident Corey Weworski shot her second straight 2-over 74 Tuesday at par-72 Poppy Hills Golf Course to capture this week’s annual California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship. The victory was Weworski’s first since her win at the 2004 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship. That same year, Google introduced Gmail. “It feels really good to win again,” said the now 54-year-old Weworski, who finished the two-day championship with a total score of 4-over 148. “I’ve been playing pretty well lately.” Having entered the final round with a tight one stroke lead over two-time defending champion Lynne Cowan, Weworski never made any major mistakes. She’d card six bogeys, but offset those with a pair of birdies and an eagle on the par-5 9th after reaching the green in two with a 7-iron and sinking a 10-foot putt. In Monday’s opening round, she’d eagle the par-5 16th. “I was pretty consistent. I played smart off the tee. When I did make an error, I just took my lumps and played to bogey,” said Weworski, who won the 1998 California Women’s Amateur Championship. Cowan, who was looking to become the first three-peat winner since Marianne Towersey, just couldn’t get anything going. On the front-nine, the four-time CWAC winner had eights pars and a double-bogey (hole No.8). After the making the turn, she’d post a 38 with three bogeys and a birdie for a 76 and 151 total, three behind the winner. “I just kind of lost my swing and stopped hitting greens,” said Cowan, who found herself in a bunker eight times during the round. “My swing was off a bit.” In 2014, Weworski was runner-up to Cowan by three shots. “I didn’t care how I played this year. I just wanted to beat Lynne,” quipped Weworski. Towersey, a record seven-time winner of the Senior CWAC, placed third at 153 after posting a tourney-low 73. Mina Hardin was fourth at 157 following a 77. In the Super Senior Championship (70-over), Judith Turco shot a final round 84 to come in at 178 and win the title. Photo Gallery   May 16, 2016 Two-time defending champion Lynne Cowan of Rocklin is again on the prowl, but for now it’s another player who’s leading the pack. Corey Weworski, who captured the 2004 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, took the first round lead in this year’s annual California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, posting a 2-over 74 Monday at par-72 Poppy Hills Golf Course. Weworski, winner of the 1998 California Women’s Amateur Championship, had a roller coaster round. She’d post an eagle on the par-5 16th and added a...

U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Qualifying

Pairings/Results March 26, 2015 They’re not headed back to the U.S. Women’s Open, but Lucy Li of Redwood Shores and Benicia’s Kathleen Scavo will be playing in another USGA championship. And this time, they’ll be doing it together. Playing as a team, Li and Scavo earned a spot in the inaugural U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship on Thursday, carding a medalist-earning 7-under 65 in an 18-hole Sectional qualifier held at par-72 Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz. The two proved to be a lethal combo as they’d card seven birdies with no bogeys. The duo’s best stretch came on the back-nine, with five birdies within their first seven holes. Last year, Li and Scavo each earned trips to the U.S. Women’s Open. Despite missing the cut, Li became the darling of the event due to being–at age 11–the youngest player to ever qualify for the championship. While Li still isn’t even a teenager, Scavo, who also missed the cut, is headed to the University of Oregon this fall. Both Li and Scavo are alums of the Junior Tour of Northern California. Finishing tied for second and also advancing to the championship proper were the teams of Ty Akabane-Kailie Vongsaga and Gigi Stoll-Danielle Lee, who both came in with matching scores of 4-under 68. Akabane won the Helen Lengfeld flight at last year’s California Women’s Amateur Championship at the age of 13. The fourth and final spot came down to a playoff between the teams of Lila Barton-Marissa Mar and Suzanne Kim and Yoonhee Kim, who came in tied at 69 after regulation. The Barton-Mar team won the playoff to earn the final berth. Among the teams missing the cut were the team of former U.S. Curtis Cup captain Pat Cornett and Rachel Moreaux (71) and the tandem of Lynne Cowan and Karen Garcia (74). Cowan is a multiple winner of the California Women’s Amateur Championship and won last year’s NCGA Senior Amateur Championship. The inaugural U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship will tee off May 9-13 at Bandon Dunes.        ...

CWAC State Amateur Championship

Pairings/Results   Match Play Tree August 8, 2015   It was a hectic week for 15-year-old Jessica Luo of San Jose, but it ended perfectly. A junior at Lynbrook High, Luo was again the definition of steady on the course, leading to a 5 and 3 win over San Ramon’s Yoonhee Kim in Saturday’s 18-hole finale of the annual California Women’s Amateur Championship at par-72 Quail Lodge Resort and Golf Club. With the victory, Luo, who was making her CWAC debut, joins an impressive list of former champions including current LPGA Tour members Mina Harigae and Natalie Gulbis and women’s golf legend Juli Inkster. “It’s surreal and amazing,” said Luo, who played her final 31 holes of the championship at 1-under par with just two bogeys. “It’s my first time playing in this event. When I saw the list of champions…it’s just incredible.” Now a member of that club herself, Luo didn’t just deal with the stress of competition all week. Following Monday’s stroke play qualifying round, she drove back home to San Jose, only to find out that her Tuesday Round of 64 tee time was around 7 :15 a.m. Luo and her father got a hotel room for Tuesday night, but each day on, and with each win that moved her further in the brackets, Luo had to find a new hotel room to stay in. Call it one of the other caveats of match play. “There were a lot of hotel rooms and a lot of different beds. It was very hectic,” Luo said. “Thankfully, my mother and brother came down on Friday and brought me some different clothes.” Over her six matches, the only time Luo ever trailed was in the semifinals versus Benicia’s Kathleen Scavo. The deficit only lasted four holes. In the quarterfinals, the No.9 seeded Luo knocked off No.1 seed Alison Lillie of Fullerton, 5 and 3. Against Kim, it was again just making pars that made the big difference. Again, Luo also set the tone early. She’d jump out to a quick 2-up through the first two holes thanks in part to a birdie on the par-5 1st after her stiffing her approach within a few feet of the flagstick. Kim cut the deficit to 1-up after a rare Luo bogey on the par-3 5th, but from there Luo, a member of the Junior Tour of Northern California, never wavered. “I try never to think of results. You never know what’s going to happen. I just take it shot by shot,” Luo said. “It was great playing with Yoonhee. Her and her mom are the best.” Kim, 17, who had her mother...

CWAC State Junior Championship

Pairings | Stroke Play Results | Championship Match Play Tree | Helen Lengfeld Flight Match Play Tree   July 3, 2015 Down one with just one hole to play, Simar Singh got a reminder from her father, Biri, as she headed to the 18th tee. “Don’t give up,” he said. Moments later, everything did change. With her back against the wall, Singh drained a clutch 20-foot putt for birdie on the 18th, and later won the 19th hole thanks to a perfect 3-wood, to capture the 66th annual California Junior Girls’ State Championship on a sunny Friday at Quail Lodge Resort in Carmel Valley. The No.11 seed, Singh upset No.1 seed and good friend Yealimi Noh of Concord, who was going for her second title in a row. “The best thing is that there are a few girls that are older than me that have won this, and they’re going to big college programs,” Singh said. “Hopefully it’s a stepping stone for me.” Benicia resident Kathleen Scavo, who’s headed to the University of Oregon this fall, won the event in both 2012 and 2013. The Olympic Club member Hannah O’Sullivan, who was runner-up at this year’s U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and won the title in 2010, has already committed to USC for 2016. Neither Scavo nor O’Sullivan got their victories the way Singh did. Having just the lost 17th hole to fall one behind, things didn’t look too good for Singh on 18 when Noh chipped up to within easy range of making par. Singh, however, upped the ante by sinking her birdie putt, sending the match to extra holes. “Putting is my favorite part of golf. When it’s on, it saves me,” said Singh, a sophomore at Los Altos High. “I wasn’t looking for a birdie on 18. I just thought, take it shot by shot. I had nothing to lose. It was cool when the putt in.” Having already come back from the brink once, Singh repeated the heroics on the 19th hole. Playing the par-5 14th, she’d hit her drive into a fairway bunker. From there, she could only advance her ball another 15 yards. Even then, she was still short of Noh’s drive, which sat in the middle of the fairway. Then she hit one of the best shots of her budding career. From 245 yards out, Singh laced a 3-wood  that fit perfectly between the greenside bunkers. Her ball would stop 18 feet from the pin. “I had that shot all four days. All the other ones I never hit the green,” Singh said. “This time I actually pulled it off. I knew Yealimi was going to go for it.” Noh did go for...
