WSNGA Members Sweep Nevada State Women’s Quad
It was a banner day at Las Vegas National Golf Club for the Women’s SNGA at the 2022 Nevada State Golf Association team event. Teams from the WSNGA earned both top net and gross honors.–Quotes and info from Bill Bowman, www.LasVegasGolfInsider.com.
The team of Tracey Blake, My Paulsen, Laura Smith and Christina Brandt won the gross title while the team of Tiffini Phu, Juliet Hebert, Christine Soscia and Julie Hahn were the net champs. The format for the two-day event was two best balls per four-person team.
The team of Blake-Paulsen-Smith-Brandt put up eight birdies on the first day of the tournament to open a seven-shot edge and cruised to a 10-shot victory.
“We just had a great team…everyone contributed,” Blake said.
Paulsen added the chemistry was perfect.
“We just all came through for each other,” Paulsen said. “If one or two of us were out of a hole, the others picked them up. We had confidence in everyone’s ability and we were fighting for every par and birdie out there.”
For the team of Phu-Hebert-Soscia-Hahn, the net champs, it was a net eagle barrage that led them to the net title.
For the two days, the team had eight net eagles with each player having at least one net eagle and Phu had four. The foursome posted a 28-under-par total and a six-shot victory.
Phu, the team spokesperson, said the teamwork paid off.
“We went in knowing we probably wouldn’t be competing for the gross title,” she said. “But we thought that if we played to our handicaps we could compete for the net and that’s exactly what happened. Tuesday was harsh. We were not dressed for the occasion at all. It was so cold. But today we layered up and were all comfortable.”
Phu said the team had one goal going in to the event: Have as much fun as possible.
“We try not to take it too seriously,” she said. “We had two players play better yesterday and two play better today. We just all worked well together and it paid off.”
