Davies-Lillie wins the WDCGA Championship
It was a hot but rain free week at Argyle Country Club. Twenty six players signed up for the championship. During the qualifying round our Tournament chair, Susan Walthall, of Army Navy had her first hole in one on the 102 yard, 17th hole. Yahoo was heard around the course. Our medalist and Metta Streit winner was Lisa Schlesinger of Norbeck.
On Thursday, we had three exciting matches. The second flight was won by Maggie Brady of Congressional 2 and 1 over Minahil Choudry of TPC Potomac. The first flight was won by Stefanie Herdon of Argyle 5 and 3 over Kathleen Lubin of River Bend. The Championship flight was a tough battle between Carol Davies-Lillie of Argyle and Allisyn Terry of River Creek. The match was back and forth all day. Coming into the 392 yard 16th hole all square, Carol rolled in her birdie putt to go up 1. The two halved #17 and Carol rolled in her putt for birdie on 18 to clench the title. It is Carol’s first win of our Championship having been runner up two times in the past. Congrats to All!!
