Two Teams Tied Atop Texas Women's Partnership Leaderboard
FAIR OAKS RANCH, TEXAS – Defending champions Camm Dougherty and Leslie McCallick are tied with Fair Oaks Ranch natives Sandi Fedor and Carolyn Gill atop the 2018 Texas Women’s Partnership at Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club.
The Texas Women’s Partnership is a two-player team format where both balls count on each hole and points are earned by each partner for each hole played. The 36-hole event is a net tournament where players will meet point quotas based on their course handicaps and the difference will be added or subtracted to the team’s overall score. Both teams accumulated 19 points in the first round and lead the overall event.
Corpus Christi’s Dougherty scored 45 points to her 42-point quota, while Horseshoe Bay’s McCallick made three birdies and scored 55 points to her 36-point quota on Monday. The pair is looking to win its third Women’s Partnership overall championship after winning at The Clubs at Prestonwood last year.
Fedor and Gill, who are members at Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club, played equally impressive at the Live Oak Course. Gill made a birdie on the par-4 13th hole, but the shot of the day came from her 7-wood on No. 16, which traveled 120 yards for a hole-in-one on the par-3. Fedor made back-to-back birdies on holes 11-12 after they started on hole No. 9.
Trailing the leaders in the overall division are Donna Brady and Meredith Tucker with 18 points. Tucker made four birdies on the day, while Brady, who is also a member at Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club, made one birdie in her round.
Alisa Kennedy and Cathy Gibson are in third place in the division with 16 points, while four other teams are tied at 15 points overall heading into the second round.
Players’ quotas are adjusted by 50-percent for the final round. Players that surpassed their round 1 quotas will be required to meet the adjusted quota, while players that missed their quotas in the opening round will have a chance to bounce back on Tuesday.
Players in the field were placed into Flights based on their combined team handicap index. All teams are looking to win the overall championship, but all five flights will award the top three finishers after the final round tomorrow.
Dougherty and McCallick lead Flight 1 with 19 points, Launa Crites and Debbie Clemens lead Flight 2 with 11 points, Fedor and Gill lead Flight 3 with 19 points, Alisa Kennedy and Cathy Gibson lead Flight 4 with 16 points and Sandy Dalehite and Dolly Wolf lead Flight 5 with 14 points.
Points are accrued for each hole based on the score made on each hole. A double bogey nets a player one point, a bogey two points, a par three points, a birdie five points, an eagle eight points, a double eagle 10 points and a hole-in-one 12 points.
Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club sits just north of San Antonio and features 36 holes of championship golf. The Live Oak Course is hosting the Women of the Texas Golf Association for the first time since 2014. The course was originally designed by
Gary Player and Ron Kirby in 1978 and then D.A. Weibring did a redesign of the course in 2006. The Live Oak Course is stretched out to 5,250 yards for all the players in the Partnership.
