Over the 34 holes of the match, Wall, 23, went for on putts of 10 feet or less and his chipping saved him a number of times. He almost holed out a yard pitch on the 10th hole of the afternoon session and made a 6-foot par putt there to halve the hole. But the short game for whatever reason comes so natural. With some of these pin locations, where they can put them with the tiers and ridges, it came in handy.
The story of women's golf in our area, from to present, is dramatic as well as fascinating and nostalgic. The Golf Office memorabilia is rich with the accomplishments of the women who pioneered golf in Philadelphia. Many of their names are familiar to us today. Annually we honor them by playing in their memorial tournaments.
While most local golfers hibernate from the sport during the winter, many golf clubs use the down time to upgrade, renovate and innovate. Under the supervision of superintendent Jay Parisien, the club is executing an extensive tree-management plan that will see 60 taken down and many others trimmed back for safety, improved turf health and playability. Other improvements includes tee leveling, bunker rebuilding, fan installations and green surround work. The next stage calls for replacement of bunkers throughout the course.
The year-old Osberg fared much better on the rest of his 36 holes of qualifying, carding rounds of 1-under-par 69 in windy conditions on both the North and Old courses, and winning medalist honors by three strokes to enter match play as the No. I seem to always have done well in the hole days with the U. Am qualifiers and the Philly Am qualifiers.
