EWGA Cup - Atlantic Qualifier Results
On Sept 26-27 the EWGA held the Atlantic Region Qualifier Cup Event.  Our Greenville Chapter's team, Upstate Iron Ladies, captained by Rhonda Rusch and 7 other members, Nancy Adair, Mary K Lane, Christine Ring, Brenda Rutledge, Beverly Scarborough, Barb Stio and Stacie Wallice competed in a two day match play tournament.  The team members handicaps ranged from 14 - 31, which illustrates that golfers of all levels can play in competitive golf.  There were 15 other teams from EWGA Chapters of the Carolinas, DC, Ohio, and Florida.  They competed in the rainy weather at the Skybrook Golf Course in Huntersville, NC (suburb of Charlotte).

The format is similar to the Solheim Cup where you have 2 ladies from each team competing against 2 ladies from an opposing  team.  In partner matches, the Iron Ladies came in with 2 wins and a tie and had 2.5 points of 4 possible and were tied for 5th; with the top 4 teams having 3 points.  Singles matches commenced on Sunday where each Upstate Iron Lady competed against one other lady from different teams.  As the day turned to afternoon, the team came in with victory after victory to take 6 wins and 2 ties, for 7 points for a Total of 9.5.  The Upstate Iron Ladies took 1st place!!  The top teams are invited to advance and compete on the national level. 

The Upstate Iron Ladies are traveling to compete in the EWGA National Cup event in Reunion, FL Nov 13-14 where they and 36 other teams from all over the country will play for the title.   

Three of these ladies, Christine Ring, Brenda Rutledge and Barb Stio, have also won local and regional EWGA championship events and will represent our region and Chapter at the EWGA National Championships in Palm Springs the end of this month.  They will play in a 4-person scramble team, with fellow EWGA Member, Erin Hutton.  We are also proud to have Brenda Kinne advance to Nationals and represent us in stroke play. 

Although we may be considered a small chapter with 40 members, we have women who embrace the game, play in weekly and weekend league events, participate in golf clinics, work on continuous improvement and get out there and compete and represent the Upstate well locally, regionally and nationally.  I am so proud of our members.
