Poffenberger-Afoa Win Bountiful Ladies 4-Ball
On July 13th and 14th, Lachell Pofenberger and Annika Afoa teamed to win the Bountiful Ridge Ladies Invitational by one stroke over veteran golfers Sue Nyhus and Kari Lawrence.
The tournament was held at beautiful Bountiful Ridge Golf Club with 62 teams participating in the popular event. Ten players from this event will be participating in the 105th Utah State Ladies Amateur at Valley View Golf Course starting July 18th , and forty players will be playing at the Utah Senior Ladies Amateur at Davis Park on July 26th-27th.
Following the second day of play, a nine-hole player-pro derby took place. Ten derby teams were made up of players from the Invitational paired with their pro partners hitting alternate shots, with one team being eliminated on each hole. Jenteal Jackson and playing partner Kelly Class from Lakeside were ousted on the 8th hole. Stacy Tyler paired with Steve Abe from Spring Creek and Nicole Gaddie playing with Zach Johnson from Davis Park took it to the 9th hole. Derby veteran Stacy Tyler drained a 6 footer to force a chip off with Gaddie. In the end, it was derby rookie Nicole Gaddie who out chipped Tyler, rolling her chip two feet closer to the pin.
The Bountiful Ridge Ladies Association would like to thank the club house staff, the maintenance crew, and the restaurant employees for helping host the best tournament of the season.
