We’ve had extremely wet conditions in Ohio and now are heading into the hot and humid part of the summer. I am hoping that all of your golf programs are heating up as well. Vice-President Penny Porter is plugging the LPGA-USGA GG organization and I would like to also put a plug in for the organization with which I have been involved for 13 years in Defiance. The junior golfers involved usually start at a really young age and it’s really rewarding to watch them progress into high school golfers and sometimes collegiate players. I recently saw a photo on MW Section member Pat Gray’sFacebook page. There were three golfers from her junior programs who are headed to play collegiate golf. How neat!
I have a great playing opportunity for those of you in the Midwest Section. Our 10th annual Ohio Women’s Open, which is held in Defiance at Eagle Rock Golf Club, will be staged on August 3 and August 4. Please take note that we have senior, regular and amateur divisions. Seniors need to be age 50, and we do have a nice purse for that division. The total purse is $25,000 with the winner of the regular division taking home a check for $6,000. The website to enter is www.ohiowomensopen.com. Please come and play and also promote it with your top amateur golfers in your area.
