Wichita, KS – Thirty-four teams competed in the Spring Triple Threat at Crestview Country Club’s South Course this morning. Teams played six holes of Four Ball, six holes of Chapman Alternate Shot, and six holes of Scramble. The competition awards prizes for gross and net scoring in each of three flights as well as trophies for the Overall Gross Champions and Overall Net Champions. Players also receive points in the KGA/KCGA Women’s Player of the Year series, which is being awarded for the first time this year.
Karen Exon of Topeka and Denise Desilet of Wichita were the Overall Gross Champions firing a three-under-par 69. The cruised through the Four Ball portion of the event carding two birdies to only one bogey. A solid +1 performance in the Chapman format kept the team going strong, but a -3 Scramble distanced the team from the field to claim the title.
Jan Davis and Barbara Crawford led all the way with stellar play in all three formats. A -3 Four Ball to go with a -6 Chapman stretch and a -6 Scramble made the pair wire-to-wire leaders. A net eagle on #13 along with birdies on both par 3s in the final holes made it difficult for the rest of the field to keep pace.
The next event in the Player of the Year Series is the Kansas Senior/Super Senior Championship at Wichita Country Club on June 19-20. Entries close on June 12.
