Final event of Orange Blossom

Tour gets underway

The final event of the 2009 Orange Blossom Tour for amateur women/girls in Florida teed off today.
It's the 63rd women's international four-ball championship at Orangebook Golf & Country Club at Hollywood (not in California!), down the Atlantic coastline from Fort Lauderdale.
All the Scottish/English/Irish students and other English players such as Holly Clyburn and Rachel Connor have come back to this side of the Atlantic so there's a very small field.
But if it's short of quantity it is not short on quality.
US Curtis Cup player Meghan Bolger, twice US women's mid-amateur champion, who lost to Kelsey MacDonald in the semi-final of the "Jones-Doherty" last week, is in the field. She plays off +1 and her partner, Dawn Woodward, plays off an amazing +4. Why was she not in the US Curtis Cup team at St Andrews last May?
Apart from them there are three or four scratch players.

69 Diane Lang (Westin) & Maggie Weder (Ironwood).
70 Meghan Bolger (Coral Ridge) & Dawn Woodward (Thornblade).
71 Mary Hanyak (PGA Golf Club) & Marianne Springer (Palm Beach Polo).
72 Corey Weworski (Sant Lux) & Jamie Hoffman (Sun Luis Rey Downs).
73 Danna King (Coto de Casa) & Madelaine Campbell (Mesa Verde).
74 Alison Reifers (Muirfield Village) & Nancy Sneed (Lakes), Boodie McGurn (CC of Virginia) & Lindsay Wortham (CC of Virginia).
79 Judy Coker (Pekin Link Creek) & Evelyn Blackman (Pekin Link Creek).
84 Jewell Frei (Orangebrook) & Ronnie Hall (Hillcrest).
