Winning last weekend’s Ladies Club Championship was an inspiring moment for Heather Dutchman.
“This was the first time I have ever won,” she said today. “I really, really wanted to win for my mother.”
Dutchman, who had the overall low gross score of 184, said her mother, Eileen Upper, won the championship several years ago and she dearly wanted to win one for her.
“It was a proud moment to know that I had won,” she said, adding that her mother was playing in the championship.
Dutchman had three great holes — the 16th, 17th and 18th — where her shots were smooth and powerful.
Sharon Tippe had the overall low net score of 148.
Runnerup for low gross was Coreen Tucker with 186 and the runnerup for the low net was Nel Lord with 149.
Daryl Trotter had the third low gross with a score of 189 while Alice Lines had the third low net with 150. Sharon Ottenbreit had the fourth low gross with 190 and Dutchman’s mother, Eileen Upper — who is 86 — had the fourth low net with 155.
The birdies for the weekend went to Sharon Ottenbreit, Barb Ross and Vanessa Smith (2).
