FWGA: Calippe Tournament Results

By Terri Malatesta and Julie Campiotti

It was a hot day for a tournament but we all survived Whack & Hack format at Callippe. With this
format we had 4 person teams and each team counted a low net ball and a high net ball. However, if
one of the team members got a net BIRDIE, then they counted the two low net balls. After tallying the
scores the winners were:

1st Place
Kelly Tague
Jan Moura
Merideth Wieland
Tim Wieland

2nd Place
Pat White
Priscilla Kramer
Kristina Ramos
Karen Billeci

Closest to the Pin:
Karen Billeci #6
Kristina Ramos #13

We also had chipins from: Robyn Jones, Mimi Johnson-Jacobs & Merideth Wieland. Kristina Ramos had
two natural birdies and Julie Campiotti shot a birdie on the 18th hole after sinking a 30 ft putt. Most of
you who have played Callippe will agree that 18 has to be the hardest hole but it is rated #2 hardest at
this course. . . hummmmm! Hope to see you all at the next tournament!


FWGA: Emerging Golfers Sunday Play Date and Clinic

By Meg Walsh, FWGA Emerging Golfers Director

The EGG (Emerging Golfers Group) Sunday clinic was held at Pleasanton Golf Center on Sunday July 29, 2012.  Dave Fowler, PGA Professional went over the basics of chipping from 15 yards and 30 yards outside the green.  Participants then moved to the bunker, where Dave instructed everyone to place 2 to 4 inches of sand in between their clubhead and the ball in order to get the ball out of the sand!  Everyone made it out in no more than 2 swings!   The ladies followed the one hour clinic with 9-holes of play where they had an opportunity to implement their new skills and concepts on the course. 

Please check the EGG Schedule for the next clinic or play date!
