Thank you to Carol Preisinger for the following excellent report stolen from her post on the T&CP facebook page!

Holly Vaughn and Gina Hull took the first round lead on Sunday in better ball format with a smokin' 66, chased by two teams tied at 68: defending champion Carolyn Hill playing with Kathy Grant-Nyman and Robyn Roberson with Carol Preisinger.  Karen Jansen and Charlotta Sorenstam were in the hunt with a 69.  Jansen and Sorenstam won the Pro-Am with amateurs Dee and Bob Reynolds.

On Monday, those top three teams finished tied for first with team score totals of 137.  After an "illustrious display" of sudden death competition on the 18th hole, Carolyn Hill and Kathy Grant-Nyman kept their eye on the prize, making birdie to edge out Vaughn/Hull and Roberson/Preisinger, who tied for 2nd.
