The Champions Cup is a two-day team tournament. Teams are comprised of eight members. Regional qualifiers determine which teams advance to the finals, and teams are free to play in any regional qualifier they choose. Our Chapter will participate in the Great Lakes Regional qualifier on September 16-17 at Seven Springs & Hidden Valley Golf Resorts in Pennsylvania. The finals will be held on October 27-28 at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Florida. Log onto www.ewgacup.com for more information.
Two formats are played at the Cup -- four ball match play and individual match play. To be eligible to compete, you must have a verifiable USGA handicap index and at least three 18-hole scores (or equivalent) posted to your 2017 handicap record by the regional qualifier deadline. Due to the popularity of this event and the need to register on the date registration opens (April 1), the Chapter solicits members in early March to gauge interest. The teams are then selected by the previous year’s captains based on a variety of factors. Teams are announced in mid to late March.
We have been very fortunate in past years to have enough players for two teams. However, this year, we will be sending only one team to the qualifier. The members of the “Delaware Destroyers” are Kathy Corcoran (captain), Cheryl Lissy, Julie Smack, Karyn Osmundson, Lisa Jackson, Val Brothwood, Paula Flynn and Melissa Steffy.
Over the last three years, we have been fortunate to advance one or both teams to the Finals. We are looking forward to this year’s qualifier with the hope of advancing our team once again.
