City Womens Championship

Bing Maloney Golf Course June 25,26

The Sacramento Golf Council proudly announces the results of the 81 st Annual Sacramento City Women's Golf Championship. The Council wishes to thank each and every player that participated in the event as well as all the staff and volunteers from the Council and from Morton Golf at Bing Maloney that helped make this another wonderful golf tournament. 63 ladies started the weekend with 40 in the Championship Flight, playing at gross, and 23 women in the President's and Director's Flight, playing at net. The Championship Flight played from the gold tees at about 5870 yards and the handicap flights played from the red tees at about 5250 yards.

Sean Wong, tournament director, would like to especially thank all the spectators and players for their support, and special thanks to all the international and out of area players for making the long trip to Sacramento. Special thanks also to Greg Bisi, Mike Fleming, Janice Luis, Ross Martin, Riley Wong and Dorothy Trevethick for their hard work in braving the heat, and to Brian Fallon, the tournament director at Bing Maloney. I also would like to thank our sponsor, The Good Feet Store, for supporting the Council this year.

As has been the case for the last several years, the quality of the field has been very strong, with 29 players under a 2.0 index, as well as diverse, with top high school players, college players and past champions, including 2001 and 2002 Sacramento City Champion Lynne Cowan and current Oregon Duck Kelsey Ulep, who won in 2014 in a tournament record 14 under par. The field also included Big West Champion Paige Lee from UC Davis as well as top golfers from San Jose State, Sonoma State, University of Nevada Reno, USF, UC Irvine, Cal Poly SLO, Grand Canyon University and Sac State. We also had long time entrant Karen Garcia of Cool, who was playing the tournament for the first time as the US Senior Women's Amateur Champion.

The course conditions were excellent, although the weather was hot throughout the weekend with temperatures reaching 100 degrees on both days. On the first day, Emily Laskin, a junior playing for USF, carded 7 birdies on holes 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12 and 14 finishing with a 4 under par round of 69 and taking a three shot lead over Caryn Khoo, a recent graduate from the Women's Golf Team at University of Nevada Reno. Caryn was the only other player at one under, posting a solid one under par round of 72 with just one bogey and two birdies. Sonoma State's Sarah Rotter also played well shooting an even par 73 that included three birdies and three bogeys. Gurman Kaur, a recent Franklin HS grad, Sonoma State's Haley Whitbeck, Grand Canyon's Kylie Fong and UNR's Celyn Khoo, were in a group still within reach at one over par 74.

On the second day, Emily Laskin let several players back in contention with a shaky front nine, bogeying holes 1, 2, 5 and 8. After birdies on 3, 6 and 7, Caryn Khoo took a three shot lead over Emily at the turn at three under par, but she soon came back to the field with bogeys at 10 and 11. Meanwhile, four groups back, Kelly Wilson of El Dorado Hills and Paige Lee were making a charge. Kelly reached even par for the tournament after birdies at 6, 8 and 9 and got to one under and tie for the lead after a birdie at 14, but fell back with bogeys at 15 and 18. Paige was also in a tie for the lead after the 12 th hole with birdies at 1, 6, 9, 11, and 12 to reach one under for the tournament, but like Kelly, a couple of bogeys down the stretch at 13 and 17 left her two back. Gurman Kaur also made a run with birdies at 3, 4, 6, 14 and 17, but a bogey at the par 3 13 th hole left her one shot back at one under par. Emily also righted the ship on the back nine, making a furious comeback tying Caryn at two under par making tough birdies on 14 and 15, but a bogey on 18 after missing the green long on her approach shot, also left her in a tie for second place. In the end, Caryn's birdie on the reachable par 5 14 th hole and steady play down the stretch with four straight pars left her alone at 2 under par, winning the 81 st Annual Sacramento City Women's Championship.
